Do Not Rush Starfield NG+, Here’s why

Starfield NG Plus vs Campaign

Starfield campaign takes around 12 to 17 hours to complete. As you complete the Main Mission you will level up and unlock new rewards. In then you can revert back and continue exploring the Starfield universe, or entire into the Unity orb to unlock the game plus. Here are some of the common reasons why you must not rush to end Starfield.

  1. All Exploration is Reset to 0: You will lose everything you had explored in the game, and in NG+ you have to explore again from scratch.
  2. Level Up Max before NG+: Weapons, Credits, and items are set to 0. But you are allowed to keep your Character Level and Skills. So better unlock everything before entering into NG+.
  3. Same Activities Can Turn Boring: Going slow will help you to enjoy this game a lot. If you rush into completing missions, you will have to replay them back. So go slow, and play all Faction Missions, Side Quest, Companion Romance Quest, Ship Building, Outpost Building, etc.
  4. Save Files: Keep a separate Save file when you are almost about to reach the end. If you enter into Game Plus and wish to revert back you can continue your exploration using the previous save file.

The logic here is to enjoy the game through main missions and side quests. It is like the first experience with Starfield and going slow will help you to get an immersive experience. Like if you have not spent much time in the Ship and Outpost building then do that. It will reset to 0 in the new game plus. The same applies to Character Relationships and Mission Progress. Here is a list of things you can keep in Starfield NG+.

  1. Character Customization & Traits
  2. Perk Tree Progress
  3. Character Level
  4. Abilities
