Undoubtedly, it is exciting news for the fans who have completed the game and obtained the platinum trophy; now, they will have new goals and quests to grind for. However, no further details about the game plus mode for God of War Ragnarök were revealed, as the studio said they will be unveiling more details near the update’s release.
But if we consider the Game Plus mode for God of War 2018, which was added to the game a few months after the release, then we can assume that God of War Ragnarök will follow its predecessor in this update and will let the players take their unlocked items and abilities with them in the new quest and they will be able to build new armor sets for Kratos and Atreus, at least it was like that in God of War 2018.
We can only assume at this stage that what will be offered in the God of War Ragnarök’s Game Plus Mode as in-depth details are yet to be revealed. It will be interesting to see what Santa Monica Studio has in store for the fans and what they can offer more on top of an already perfect game.
We will keep you posted upon receiving any further information about this news. God of War Ragnarök is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
