Cory: "It is definitely something that I am still trying to convince people of, but we’ll have to see where it shakes out."
Yes please !
Please, cause my silly ash was excited to show my brother the first boss battle, and lost my game, on hard, almost finished. I was so pissed that haven't even started over again....🤬
And let us carry over from the hardest difficulty anything we have earned.
I hate how NG+ is not just an automatic thing lately. Of course we want it! Should go without saying.
Yes F PLEASE!!!
Come on guys, it's a no brainer. Do we have to start a petition? I'm still grinding gear in Niflehiem and Musphelheim so I can take down those pesky valkyries. It would be sweet to be able to go through the game again with Epic gear on NG+. C'mon please make it happen.
The Valkyries are some of the hardest boss fights if ever done. I'm still stuck on the last one.
Get to level 7,5 at least. Equip anything that increases cooldown and defense. Get the talisman that reduces Valkyrie damage and fully upgrade it. Then go beat her ass. Thank me later.
I still have to take down the Valkyrie in Nifleheim, but by the time I get to her, my health is just not enough to even consider starting the fight :(
@ArchangelMike Dont loot, jusr run straight to the boss. Its one of the easiest of the bunch imo
@archangelmike theres a niflehime talisman that gives you a healt and mist burst. (on L1+O) its purple.
Maxing out your Runic and Cooldown stats will do you justice.
Also an option to skip cutscenes please Cory.
Considering the camera never cuts... I don't think that seems plausible...
Of course they could do it, they might not want to though since it would break the no cutting camera.
Not sure how that would even work in this game since there aren't any cutscenes.
I know right. Just that I'm doing my second play through and as much as I love the story I could do without watching it again.
Pause the game during a cinematic and it actually will tell you there is one playing. I understand they are rendered in game, but they are still cinematically/cutscenes.
I'd take an option to skip walking through the transit realm every time I want to warp somewhere.
Then you'd probably end up staring at a black loading screen since that's what it's masking.
Than you would just be staring at a black screen and missing out on the conversations so I don’t see how that would be a better option
You can do what I do. Just stand there, and go grab a drink, by the time you are back the portal would be there waiting lol
You do eventually run out of conversations though, and then it's just them jogging through the exact same place you've seen a couple dozen times. At that point, I'd prefer to see a loading screen since I don't have to needlessly navigate around. So yeah, an option would be better.
It is definitely something I want as well but there are certain things in the game that make it more difficult to include. There are specific items that are only acquired during story missions. There are things you could definitely not be allowed to have at the beginning of the game. Plus you currently get specific rewards for finishing the game on "Give me God of War" difficulty. Obviously, you should not be allowed to earn those if you start with greater abilities. It's one aspect of the game where SSM dug themselves a little hole. It's not until the end that I felt truly powerful and once you complete all of the side missions there is really nothing left to do. I want to play it again but I need some more time away from the game to want to jump in from scratch without all my cool stuff.
Yeah, I don't know how they'd do the weapons.
Thanks for posting this. It isn't a simple as some people think. And had they made it possible from the beginning then the game would not have possessed the structure that is part of its greatness. In this instance, New Game Plus for me already exists since I restart the game armed with knowledge and girded up with tactics.
If I'm reading you correctly, I think there is a way they could implement some of the items. Spolier alert follows. ****SPOILERS***SPOILERS**** For example, the blades. The devs could make it that on NG+ you don't start with the blades - as normal; but when you get to that point in the story and retrieve the blades, what you actually retrieve are your fully upgraded blades from your first playthough.
I harassing him on twitter as we speak. Hope he doesnt block me. I know kamiya blocks people lool
Oh just do it already ...i want to go for another playthrough
I do want a Game Plus as well but I'm trying to figure out how they would do it. He starts out with just the Axe but during The Sickness picks up his old friends. Which would be awkward to have those already without questions asked by Atreus. Unless It's set up to be completely transparent.
But by NG+ you've already gone through the story and such so is it a big deal if Atreus just seems to not notice your weapons? I don't think anyone wants to play NG+ to experience the story, they want to play it again to carry over all that power and whoop butt!
*Spoiler* I'd like to Select New Game+ then the give me God of War difficulty and then yes go through the entire story and side quest. I just don't think it's possible to have the Chaos Blades right away from the beginning due to the story of getting them later. One must have played the game or watched it to understand what i'm getting at.
Yeah it would be really awkward to have them already and then when that part of the story comes up... go and retrieve them... again? haha It would be pretty awkward with how they tied it to the story and certain unlocks. But I'm already playing it on Give Me God of War so I was hoping to get some awesome stuff, get my exclusive Give Me God of War skins then drop down to normal or something and just destroy enemies feeling like a true God. As of right now playing on Give Me God of War I'm getting beaten around like i'm a punk ass God :/
I think you would likely not start with that particular item in NG+ since it's integral to the storyline.
It's a gift.
On NG+ you wouldn't have them to start with. But when you get to that point in the story when you have to retrieve them - what you would actually retrieve would be your fully upgraded version from you first playthrough.
I can accept that. Lol maybe they can shuffle around the items you earn in chests too.
Just finished it last night 100%. Was surprised to see *that* guy show up in the ending. Definitely want a new game plus though. But only if they're given time to do it proper, with the same fresh approach they took with the game itself, not just upping the difficulty.
I hope we get it in the future. I wanna play on Give Me God of War with my equipment and get those epic shields to match the rest of my epic set.
As great as GOW was I had no urge to play it a second time. I got the platinum and then moved on.
New Game Plus would definitely be a bonus and more than welcome. The best way would be to simply up the power of all the opponents and be able to take them on with Epic gear. The second time round there would be no need to get specific rewards but maybe incremental pieces ffor the Epic gear.
I would love to see them allow people who have completed the game on GOW difficulty to be able to drop the difficulty without having to start all the way over from the beginning.
please please please we all need this
This is what action RPG should reach for. Horizon and this are my top games this gen.
I’m actually okay either way, honestly though would prefer if they just straight up go to the sequel.
Yup. Stop wasting time and get busy!
To be honest with you, I would take new story DLC ahead of NG+ as I'm sure we won't see a GOW sequel until the PS5 launches since it take 4-5 years to make these games.
After beating it on the hardest difficulty a new game plus would be nice but I’m not sure if I’d want to go through a possibly harder difficulty again. I’m pretty content
The Guy is a great game director I would love to see what he comes up with.
I want to keep all my item and equipment,just reset the story elements...and reset the skill tree too just for that challenge.
got into this games a few weeks late due to personal reasons (#fuckexams amirite lmao?), probably the best game ive played since ocarina of time
Dammit! We need this Cory. Make it happen, please!
Stop the BS just do it,keep making this game great!!
It shakes out with an update. Just do it lol. Seriously this would be awesome to have. I think just about every game can benefit from new game plus.
