With the Assassin’s Creed franchise producing new games almost every year, the demand for something new and unique is always a dread to the game developers. But being the awesome set of minds as they are, the devs always came up with something new for the fans when got tired of the game’s original story mode.
One such new thing was the Assassin’s Creed New Game Plus Mode. Starting with Assassin’s Creed Origins, the devs decided to spice up the game by adding a new mode, and eventually Assassin’s Creed Odyssey followed suit and came up with yet another rendition of the New Game Plus Mode.
Now, with the new Assassin’s Creed Valhalla released back in November 10th, 2020, the fans wonder when it will get its own New Game Plus Mode. If you don’t know much about the Game Plus Mode then you don’t need to worry, here’s everything you need to know.
1. What is the New Game Plus (NG+) Mode in Assassin’s Creed Games?
The NG+ Mode in the Assassin’s Creed games like Origins and Odyssey is basically an RPG like rendition of the actual game where an add-on will make the weapons tiered.
Along with replaying the initial story, the players will have a chance to get upgrades and leveled up weapons, complete quests, and even collect a rare item or two.
The NG+ is loaded from your saved file or you can also specify which save file you want to load. One good thing about the save file load is that it carries over some specific progress from your game. Here’s the List:
- Your levels and XP
- Your unlocked abilities
- All of your weapons and armor (both in inventory or on person)
- Weapon upgrades
- All of your resources
- All of your money
However, the NG+ does not carry over the completed storyline, any other quests that you may have completed or the discovered areas on your map.
Although, it is still unsure what specific progression will be carried over by AC Valhalla.
2. Does AC Valhalla Have a New Game Plus?
AC Valhalla does not currently have a New Game Plus added. The game came out on November of 2020, so it is likely it will take a bit more time before players get their hands on the NG+ mode.
i. When Will AC Valhalla Get the New Game Plus?
AC Origins and AC Odyssey also got their NG+ mode a year after the game’s initial release. AC Valhalla will probably follow suit with its predecessors and release the NG+ sometime during the mid to last months of 2021.
Also you cannot forget the fact that AC Valhalla just recently got the River Raids update. So, the devs might take a bit more time to come up with the NG+ mode for the game.
3. Hints on AC Valhalla New Game Plus?
The only hint available online about a possible New Game Plus mode was of a “assassinscreed plus.exe” file being present in the game’s folder.
Some reddit users found the file and speculated that it might be the executable file for the upcoming New Game Plus mode.
Although nothing is yet to be confirmed, that little hint has added some hope that we will be able play the NG+ mode and even wield a buffed up Mjolnir!!
