A new Game+ mode is announced by Santa Monica Studios which is still under development for God of War. Shawn Layden Announced this upcoming feature as something about which the team and himself heard a lot of feedback about.
In PlayStation official blog post Aaron Kaufman posted “Have you ever imagined that first test of strength defying battle with Baldur while adorning the Valkyrie Armor on Kratos? You can with New Game+. How about a fully upgraded Leviathan Axe at the start of the game? That will also be possible, and quite frankly, you may need it, New Game+ won’t just be a sunny stroll through Midgard” So according to this the game is going to go all out on you from the beginning and to compensate with that Kratos and Atreus will have a Valyrie armor in this new mode.
And there is nothing to worry about as the Game+ will have all the upgrades collected along the journey in the standard game by the players such as armors, pommels, talismans, and more…except your strength to open or kick down doors remains the same. And in the Blog post.
This is the first content that is out for the Smash hit God of War post-launch. Corey Barlog explained that there are no plans on launching a story based DLC for the game in the future. And the new Game+ mode is likely to arrive as a free update.
