God of War New Game Plus Coming August 20, Details Revealed

God of War Gets New Game Plus on August 20

God of War free New Game+ update releases later this month

Today, Sony Santa Monica revealed when New Game Plus will arrive, and it's going to be here in just a couple of weeks. Releasing on August 20, this mode not only allows users to replay the campaign with most of their current gear, but it also introduces new options to make the experience feel fresh again.

In addition, players can craft and upgrade their equipment to a new rarity level through a new resource exclusive to new game+; Skap Slag.

The New Game+ mode was originally announced during Sony's E3 presentation, a side note among the larger showcases for games like Spider-Man and The Last of Us Part II.

More specifically, the update holding New Game Plus will launch on August 20. At the same time, New Game+ won't be locked to any previous difficulty settings; it can be as easy or hard as players choose. That means you keep your "armours, enchantments, talismans, resources and abilities". You can use new customization options to upgrade your gear, and use it to take on tougher enemies.

That's when I realized that it must be for the other Tommy Fleetwood and I quickly worked out that it was his Open winnings. The problem: It went to the wrong Tommy Fleetwood. "He got on to his bank immediately and they didn't know what to say".

Finally, get right back into the action with the newly added ability to skip through cinematics in both normal and New Game+ modes once a full play through has been completed.

According to Kaufman, not only will the forthcoming patch be the "biggest update to God of War" yet, but also it has been inspired by player feedback, so it will be interesting to see how the fan base reacts when it goes live.
