The Witcher 3's New Game Plus mode detailed by CD Projekt Red
Earlier this week, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red revealed that the final piece of free downloadable content coming to the open-world game was a New Game Plus mode. Today, the developer explains what that means for players returning for a replay of The Witcher 3.
First on the list? "Enemies will be stronger, obviously," CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot said.
In a post on the game's official forums, Momot explained that player experience, money and alchemy recipes will carry over when starting a New Game Plus playthrough. So will items, with a few exceptions: Gwent cards, quest items, books, letters, usable items and trophies.
If a player finishes the game below level 30, they'll be bumped up to level 30 when they start New Game+, Momot explained. Otherwise, they'll start New Game+ playthroughs with their current level.
"You also get a free Clearing Potion at the start so you can reset your skills and try a different build," Momot said.
Players will be able to select any difficulty level they want when starting New Game Plus.
CD Projekt Red hasn't provided a release date for The Witcher 3's New Game Plus mode. The update will be the 16th and final piece of planned free DLC for the game.
