THE BUZZ: Rocksteady has today released a short Q&A detailing Batman: Arkham City’s New Game + mode.
The mode was revealed last week when the achievements for the game leaked online. Rocksteady’s Community Manager Sarah Wellock answered the following;
HOW DO I UNLOCK NEW GAME PLUS?
Finish the game on normal or hard mode
WHAT DO I START NEW GAME PLUS WITH?
ALL of your gadgets from the end of your first play though, ALL of your XP (including unlocked upgrades)
WHAT IS DIFFERENT?
No counter icons on thugs
Different Thug Levels: tougher thugs are available from the start of the game
Different Thug Configuration
Increased difficulty Bosses : Bosses will be even more cunning
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM HARD MODE?
The main difference is that you will have ALL of your gadgets and xp so even though the enemies may be tougher you will have the technical upper hand
IS NEW GAME PLUS ONE DIFFICULTY SETTING?
Yes, regardless of whether you finish the game on normal or hard new game plus will be the same difficulty
CAN I STILL REPLAY THE GAME WITHOUT NEW GAME PLUS?
Yes you can, however you won’t start with all your gadgets”
EGM’s TAKE: It’s good to see Rocksteady learning from their first title by giving players more to do after they beat the game. New Game + should bring an extra challenge to Arkham City that was missing from Arkham Asylum after it was complete.
