God of War's New Game Plus Will Arrive on 20th August

You'll also be able to skip through cinematic scenes in both normal and New Game Plus games once the patch has gone live, as long as you've finished the story once. Releasing on August 20, this mode not only allows users to replay the campaign with most of their current gear, but it also introduces new options to make the experience feel fresh again. While that might be enough for some folks, others might be tempted back with New Game Plus mode, which allows you to start over from the beginning with all of your equipment and upgrades. New Game+ unlocks after you finish the regular game once, as you might expect.

It's not as if you need a reason to revisit the masterpiece that is God of War, but PlayStation is giving you one anyway with a New Game+ mode for the epic adventure. Enemies will be more hard and some will even have new attacks and patterns.

Although we won't see the comet itself, we will still witness the trail of debris left by it. The Perseids meteor shower occurs around mid-August.

In saying this, the August 20 update will offer higher level enemies for those wanting a new challenge, with Sony Santa Monica hinting at new abilities for Kratos' foes. You'll start the journey over with all of your previous armors, enchantments, talismans, resources, and abilities. "Play the game in a whole new way by exploring new customization options with extremely powerful new armour sets and enchantments". Collect "Skap Slag", a new resource to upgrade your gear to the best of the best from our finest blacksmiths.

This update has resulted in a bit of a wait for fans who rushed through God of War (I don't blame 'em), but it sounds like the time was put to good use.
