Ubisoft’s new Game Plus Mode coming to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was by far the biggest in the franchise and it could get bigger as Ubisoft plans on launching a Game Plus mode for the game. The announcement was made fairly but a definite answer wasn’t made as to when Ubisoft was planning to launch the new mode.
Ubisoft sent out a vague tweet recently which confirmed the New Game Plus mode to the latest Assassin’s Creed game, the tweet read:

Though the tweet did not update on what the new Game Plus would bring to the game, Ubisoft has posted in their F.A.Q section about this which says:
New Game + in Assassin’s Creed: Origins
How does New Game + work in Assassin’s Creed: Origins?
Once you completed the main story of Assassin’s Creed: Origins on any difficulty, you’ll be able to start over with New Game +. In contrast to a normal new playthrough, New Game + allows you to keep the gear and experience you gathered previously. In this FAQ, we’ll break down the details for you.
To access New Game +, navigate to the game’s title screen. A new option will be available for you to start New Game +. This creates a separate saved file and will not overwrite your previous save file.
Starting a New Game + will automatically increase the game’s difficulty by one step (except if you already played the previous campaign on the hardest difficulty, Nightmare). Additionally, enemy scaling will be active by default on New Game +. If you do not wish the enemies to scale up to your level, you can disable this feature in the Options menu.
All character progression will carry over to New Game +, including the following:
– Abilities acquired, available ability points and XP
– Crafting status
– Player level
However, when starting a New Game + save, some elements will automatically reset. The following won’t carry over:
– Maps and discovered territories
– Location completion
– Quest completion
– Senu’s perception
– Hidden blade (it will be unequipped but the crafting status will carry over once it becomes available in the story)
– Quest items
It will bring a fresh perspective to those who have already completed the game.
