New game plus mode is unlocked after you beat the game one time through that enables you to keep all the cool gadgets for your second play. Rocksteady European Community Manager Sarah Wellock explained all this and more in a forum Q&A: 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 I love this mode, it will add incentive to play through the game a second time because you won't have to level up your Batman a second time through you will just kick ass. Is this game mode something you will be using your second time through the game or do you enjoy leveling up Batman as you progress through the game? Release Date: US October 18, EU October 21
