Re-experience God of War with new game plus mode, coming in just a few weeks.

God of War‘s new game plus mode is set to release August 20. 

To access the mode, player’s will have to install a patch and beat God of War‘s story on any difficulty setting. Those who have already beaten the storyline will simply have to install the patch to restart the game with all their gear and abilities. 

On top of letting players experience the game from a new perspective (and new power level), new game plus mode will also introduce harder enemies and new gear. There will also be an option to skip the game’s cinematics if you’re simply in it for the challenge or glorious loot. 

Seeing that God of War is hands-down one of the best games of 2018 — and arguably the past decade — it’s no wonder scores of fans yearned for more action after completing the game’s main storyline. 

Since the game’s release, Sony Santa Monica and Creative Director Cory Barlog have made it a priority to implement fan feedback into the revitalized series, and new game plus mode is one of the many steps taken to do just that. 

Taking to Twitter, Barlog thanked developers for implementing the feature for all the game’s fans:
