To access New Game +, navigate to the game's title screen. A new option will be available for you to start New Game +. This creates a separate saved file and will not overwrite your previous save file.
Starting a New Game + will automatically increase the game's difficulty by one step (except if you already played the previous campaign on the hardest difficulty, Nightmare). Additionally, enemy scaling will be active by default on New Game +. If you do not wish the enemies to scale up to your level, you can disable this feature in the Options menu.
All character progression will carry over to New Game +, including the following:
- Abilities acquired, available ability points and XP
- Crafting status
- Player level
However, when starting a New Game + save, some elements will automatically reset. The following won't carry over:
- Maps and discovered territories
- Location completion
- Quest completion
- Senu’s perception
- Hidden blade (it will be unequipped but the crafting status will carry over once it becomes available in the story)
- Quest items
You can find more information on New Game + on the official website. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
