New Game Plus (commonly referred to as NG+) is an unlockable game mode achievable once the player has successfully completed the Main Quest (after the Arisen has faced the Seneschal in The Great Hereafter quest). 

***Choose the option "LOAD CLEARED GAME" to begin New Game Plus, NOT "New Game".***

The game's story and quests will be reset from the beginning, but ALL of the player's weapons, equipment, items, current level, Vocation progress, Main Pawn progress, Experience Points, Gold, and Rift Crystals will be completely and safely intact. Nothing is "lost" except for uncompleted quests in the previous playthrough, which can be completed again in New Game Plus. Simply go to Pablos' Inn in Cassardis to access all accumulated inventory once New Game Plus has begun.

WARNING!!!: Be sure to choose "Load Game"!!!  DO NOT select "New Game", otherwise all previous work, Arisen, Main Pawn, earnings, weapons, items, and progress will be DELETED and a completely brand new game will be started from scratch at Level 1 !!!

"New Game" should only ever be chosen if the player wishes to start over completely with a Level 1 Arisen.

Changes in beginning a game with New Game PlusEdit

  • Player level, skills, stats, health, Affinity, Gold, RC and items are all carried over from previous play-throughs.
    • All player items (such as Weapons, Armor, Materials, etc.) carry over; they can be retrieved at any inn.
    • Existing Pawn Skills are retained, but need to be re-assigned.
  • Enemy levels DO NOT increase; difficulty is not changed in any way.
  • A New Game Plus starts in the same town and similar things happen with the story.
  • A new Rift Stone will be available on the beach in Cassardis which takes the player directly to the Ur-Dragon.
  • Portcrystals will be available at The Black Cat for purchase, allowing players to place multiple portals around the game world.
    • All previously deployed Portcrystals are still deployed and active; however they are only usable upon reaching Gran Soren.
  • Shops retain the stock they had before starting New Game Plus (it is still required to get to the correct stage to unlock things missed in playthroughs).
    • Minor bug regarding this, please refer to the Bugs section below.
  • A few new quests appear at Notice Boards, offering substantial gold rewards.
  • Explored areas of the Map are retained.
  • BE WARNED: There is no going back! Once the player turns in the twenty Wakestones for Fathom Deep, The Everfall will be unavailable until that point in the game is reached again! Players can back-up their Dragon's Dogma save file onto an External hard drive or flash drive before starting New Game Plus, but the quest lines, NPCs, rewards, enemies, and difficulty are mostly the SAME. Unless the player is planning to rush through the game a second time to reach the Everfall trials again, it may be best to hold off on starting New Game Plus.
  • Note: New Game Plus can be restarted an infinite number of times, meaning completing the first New Game Plus (NG+) will lead to New Game Plus Plus (NG++), and so forth. The player can access how many times they've completed the game under the History menu.
