Alongside the Discovery Tour mode being added to Assassin’s Creed Origins tomorrow which turns the game into an interactive museum for players, it will also receive a New Game+ mode.
Ubisoft detailed all you’ll need to know about its New Game+ mode on the game’s website. You can read this information below. It will be available as part of a free update.
What is New Game +?
New Game + (NG+) is an option that allows players to start a new saved game while keeping their current character progression, once they’ve completed the main story of the game.
What carries over into New Game +?
All character progression will carry over to NG+, including the following:
- Equipment (weapons, shields, tools, outfits, mounts)
- Abilities acquired and available ability points
- Crafting status
- Player level
- Inventory (crafting materials, arrows, tools, animal goods, trinkets)
What does not carry over?
Starting an NG+ save, players will restart at the beginning of the game, which will automatically reset some elements, and thus the following won’t carry over:
- Maps and discovered territories
- Location completion
- Quest completion
- Senu’s perception
- Hidden blade will be unequipped (however, the crafting status will carry over once available in the story)
- Quest items
Are activities like the arena, Trials of the Gods, and Hippodrome already accessible from the beginning of New Game +?
All activities are tied to the progression of the game, so players will have to progress in the main game to regain access to them – just as during the regular game progression.
Is enemy scaling activated automatically with New Game +?
Yes, enemy auto level scaling is activated by default when starting an NG+; however, players can deactivate at any time if they wish to do so.
Will enemies be more difficult in New Game +?
When starting an NG+, the difficulty will be increased by one from your previous campaign. This means:
- Easy ? Normal
- Normal ? Hard
- Hard ? Nightmare
- Nightmare ? Nightmare
Will New Game + have any impact on the loot system?
The loot system will remain the same as usual.
Will there be any special rewards for completing the game in New Game +?
Yes, there will be a unique reward for completion of the game in NG+ – but we want to keep that reward a surprise.
Will New Game + override your current saved game?
No, NG+ is a separate saved file.
How do you access it?
The mode will be available after completing the main game. Players can access it by going to the title screen. A new option will be available on your saved game to start an NG+. Once chosen, a new separate save will be created.
