Lies Of P - New Game Plus Guide
Find out what you can expect from Lies of P's New Game Plus mode.
Your journey will eventually come to an end in Lies of P. However, a certain feature still allows you to continue, or start fresh with a few goodies thrown in for good measure. Our Lies of P New Game Plus guide discusses what you can expect after the conclusion of the campaign. Likewise, please be reminded that this article contains spoilers.
Everything you need to know about Lies of P New Game Plus mode
The Lies of P New Game Plus mode becomes available after watching the endings and post-credits scenes. As soon as the scenes are done, a prompt will appear asking you if you want to overwrite your save with a New Game Plus run.
Your original save: overwrite, create a backup, or restart
Overwrite - If you decide to accept the aforementioned prompt, you'll be back at the starting area of the campaign for New Game Plus mode. A separate save file will not be created. Instead, your original save will get overwritten.
Create a backup - Those playing on PC via Steam can opt to create a backup save. Your save file can be found in your Lies of P installation drive: Steam\Steamapps\common\Lies of P\LiesofP\Saved\SaveGames\<userID>. Copy the account, option, and save data files to a backup folder.
A good reason why you might want to create a backup is so that you can find other goodies that you might have missed during the campaign. For instance, you could purchase certain weapons or unlock specific achievements, as opposed to doing those tasks in New Game Plus. In fact, continuing a post-campaign run can lead to more secrets, such as turning all NPCs into puppets.
Restart - If ever you want to switch over to New Game Plus during your post-campaign run, you can go to the Stargazer in Hotel Krat and pick the Restart option. This will overwrite your original save file, similar to accepting the prompt after the ending scenes.
What carries over in Lies of P New Game Plus
When you begin your Lies of P New Game Plus run, you'll retain everything except for all collectibles (other than records, gestures, and costumes), Krat Supply Boxes (i.e. special items that increase Polendina's shop wares), and Venigni Collections (i.e. special items that increase Pulcinella's shop wares).
That means you'll immediately have access to the following:
- Gear pieces: Weapons, amulets, and parts/armor
- Upgrades: All accumulated stats, P-Organ upgrades, and Legion Arm upgrades.
- Currencies and materials: Your remaining Ergo, Moonstones, Wishstones, and Golden Fruit Coins, as well as any Legion Plugs, Legion Calibers, and boss items that you didn't exchange.
- Collectibles: Costumes, gestures, and records.
Other New Game Plus additions
Upon beginning your run, the desk where you initially chose your starting class/path has options that allow you to change/upgrade your Legion Arm, as well as reset your P-Organ upgrades, if you wish. Since you're restarting your run with a bunch of stuff carried over, you can essentially farm more Ergo and other materials/currencies to fully boost your character and weapons.
Moreover, you should now see the phase 6 or tier 6 upgrades for your P-Organ, which can be unlocked after you acquire additional Quartz. Last but not least, if you check the main menu, you'll notice a gallery. The gallery has portraits of the game's NPCs, enemy mobs, and bosses.
