God of War Ragnarok will get New Game Plus in spring 2023

God of War Ragnarok

Ragnarok will return

The latest God of War game has been out for a bit now, and players are likely finishing up and watching credits roll over the holidays. And if they wanted a reason to start it all over again, they’ll have it later on in 2023 too. Sony Santa Monica confirms that New Game Plus is coming to God of War Ragnarok next spring.

“We know many of you have been asking, so we’re happy to confirm that New Game Plus will be coming to God of War Ragnarok in Spring 2023!” the tweet reads. More details will be shared closer to the mode’s actual release.

No details have been given as to what the mode will officially entail. The 2018 reboot of God of War also got a New Game Plus mode down the line, so we can extrapolate a bit from that. The previous God of War‘s NG+ included a difficulty option, a handful of new armor sets and abilities, and some new attack patterns for enemies. It’ll be interesting to see how much Ragnarok carries into its own New Game Plus, because the 2018 God of War‘s version is pretty hefty.

A new father-son adventure

On top of the New Game Plus mode, support has been rolling out steadily for God of War Ragnarok. Recently, Sony Santa Monica added a photo mode into the options. And early patches have hit a sizeable number of tweaks and fixes.

It’s Sony’s big game for the end of the year. But it’s nice to see that Ragnarok will carry on into 2023, too. Hopefully fans get a little extra fun out of the game when the New Game Plus rolls out.
