God of War Ragnarok

God of War: Ragnarok will go down as one of the best game sequels ever released. Perfectly pairing with God of War (2018), this conclusion to Kratos' Norse saga was a joy for all.

Just like God of War (2018), that first initial wave of content wasn't enough for many, with fans crying out for the addition of New Game Plus.

Thankfully, New Game Plus has finally arrived, meaning you can jump back in now and play through one of the best releases of 2022 all over again.


Good news folks, New Game Plus has finally arrived for God of War Ragnarok, meaning you can jump back in now to one of the best games of 2022 and experience the whole thing over again.

The game promises to offer even more delights on a second playthrough, with players given the chance to strip Kratos down to his bare bones and play without armour.

Of course, with the release of Photo Mode, you can also go back and capture some of the best moments from the game, like fights vs Thor or a first visit to Svartalfheim.

Either way, this addition has been wanted for some time and is sure to bring plenty of joy back to the passionate God of War fanbase.

God of War Ragnarok New Game Plus

Right now, New Game Plus is not presently available in God of War Ragnarok.

However, it has been confirmed that New Game Plus will arrive in God of War: Ragnarok in Spring 2023 - meaning you won't have to wait long to use this feature and begin your story all over again.

AGAIN - New Game Plus will allow you to re-live your favourite Ragnarok moments

Fans are certainly clamouring for it, with the only way of replaying the story right now being to start a brand new save, leaving all of that sweet gear behind.

God of War (2018) received the New Game Plus feature roughly four months after release and we're expecting Ragnarok to have to wait a similar time.

What is New Game Plus?

New Game Plus is a relatively new feature seen added into games in previous years, allowing you to restart the story with all of your gear acquired from your first playthrough.

For instance, you'd be able to start the campaign again in God of War Ragnarok with all the new armour and skills acquired throughout your first completion.

New Game Plus adds a new flavour to story progression and completion, allowing you to beat challenges quicker and potentially test yourself on a higher difficulty.

New Game Plus also goes perfectly with Photo Mode, allowing you to experience iconic moments once again, but this time capturing that perfect shot for your screen-saver.

Either way, New Game Plus is a much-loved feature that lets you live the story again and in the case of God of War Ragnarok, it's not hard to see why so many people want this feature added.

God of War Ragnarok Review

It's been two years since the release of the PS5 and while it's been an impressive leap over the PS4 and has had some great games, none have really felt like a must-play. Until now.

2022 has been a strong year, bookended by massive titles for Sony and while Horizon Forbidden West was a brilliant title and is in the conversation for Game of the Year... God of War Ragnarok is an absolute masterpiece.

BRAVE NEW DAWN - Ragnarok is the perfect conclusion to the Norse saga

Everything about this game just works beautifully together with its slick combat colliding with its beautifully directed cutscenes and performances to create a title that is genuinely hard to put down.

I was hooked throughout the entire experience and I'll likely still be hooked once I go back to complete all the side-quests I missed the first time around, determined to squeeze every last bit of story out of the game.
