Assassin's Creed Origins New Game Plus Available Now, Reward Available If You Beat It
Looking for a new challenge from the PS4, Xbox One, and PC game?
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
The Discovery Tour mode in Assassin's Creed Origins isn't the only new thing available in the game today, February 20. Veteran players looking for something new can check out the New Game + mode, which was added to the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC today.
Once you beat the main story, you can create a NG+ save and keep all of your existing progression, including things like weapons and outfits, along with abilities, XP, inventory items such as crafting materials and tools, and of course your character level.
Of course, some things won't carry over such as all of the maps and discovered territories, as well as quest competition status and Senu's perception level. Activities tied to progression are reset, so things like Trials of the Gods and the Hippodrome won't be available until you unlock them as part of normal gameplay progression.
Additionally, you'll find the experience more difficult as the difficulty level will go up one notch compared to your previous campaign. So for example, Easy will go to Normal and Normal to Hard, etc. Enemy scaling is on by default in NG+, but you can deactivate it.
There will be a "unique reward" for when you beat the NG+ version of the game, but Ubisoft is keeping this a surprise for now. For a full, detailed breakdown of the NG+ mode, check out this FAQ on Ubisoft's website.
The second and final expansion for Origins, The Curse of the Pharaohs, is coming in March for all platforms. However, an update on February 27 will include a new quest, "Lights Among the Dunes," that serves as an introduction before the full expansion lands on March 6.
