If you’ve been replaying the God of War game, you can stop now and start downloading the latest New Game+ and explore new features, customization options, weapons, and gears.

Sony has released the God of War New Game+ update to celebrate the game’s four-month anniversary. If you haven’t completed the story campaign, do that first because it’s the only way you can play the latest content. There’s no restriction for difficulty level that means you can complete the story campaign at any difficulty level.
The new game mode carries over everything including your gears and resources from your previous gameplay sessions. You will now face more challenging levels and highly skilled enemies. Sony says that the New Game+ update is inspired by feedback the studio received from fans. As mentioned earlier, the update brings new features and in-game items for players, and it also cranks ups the difficulty level.

How to download God of War New Game+ on PS4
To download the God of War New Game+ on PlayStation 4, the first thing you need to make sure is if you have completed the main game’s story campaign or not. Those who have completed the main story can access the new content as the update is available for free to all. Additionally, if you love replaying the game, with the New Game+ update you can do the same as there’s an option that lets you restart the New Game+ so you can replay the new content whenever you want.
One of the best decisions developers made with the New Game+ is the availability of difficulty selection in the beginning. Regardless of the difficulty settings you used for the story campaign, when you begin New Game+, you will be asked to choose your difficulty setting. Both Kratos and Atreus get new gameplay abilities and armour sets. A new ability called chest piece creates massive explosions when you stomp on rage stones. However, keep in mind that most of the new features you will be getting in the God of War New Game+ won’t be available in the main game. Some features are available only in the New Game+.
Recently, God of War Director Cory Barlog revealed some interesting details about the game’s concept art and shared some behind the scene details about the game. He revealed that the team at Santa Monica Studio was not sure about the game’s setting as they had to choose between Norse and Egyptian mythologies.
Interestingly, these two were not the only options as the team was also considering Inca and Hindu myths for the game’s setting. When it was a 50/50 situation for the development team, Barlog himself voted for the Norse mythology setting. The team created some visuals for Egyptian setting as well. Barlog showed the same at an event.
