God of War: Ragnarok is just the kind of sequel that fans needed to stave off the boredom and doldrums of the cold winter months. With its massive campaign, a bevy of side quests, rich storytelling, and nuanced character depictions, the game pretty much checks every box imaginable for its core audience. All the same, following the massive success of the 2018 God of War reboot is no mean feat, so extra credit to Sony’s Santa Monica Studio for nailing the sequel so succinctly.
However, with more and more 1st and 2nd party Sony exclusives like “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales” and “Horizon Forbidden West” offering players the ability to replay their adventures with a New Game+ mode, fans might be wondering if God of War: Ragnarok will be following suit.

Is There a New Game+ Mode in God of War: Ragnarok?
Alas, as of this writing, God of War: Ragnarok doesn’t have a New Game+ mode for overpowered fans to utilize while blasting through the game’s many enemies and bosses to experience the story again. However, all is not lost, as the 2018 God of War reboot also launched without a New Game+ that was eventually released in a patch after a few months. With this fact in mind, it seems likely that the sequel will probably follow suit at some point.
However, as it stands at this moment, the closest thing to New Game+ is an 18th chapter in the game that takes place after all of the main plot lines are resolved between the main characters and events of God of War: Ragnarok. Though it’s not a true New Game+ experience, the post-game chapter allows the player to clean up anything they might have missed over the course of their adventure, granting especially thorough players the chance at yet another coveted Platinum trophy for their collection.
