Assassin's Creed Odyssey New Game Plus

How do you start New Game + in Assassin's Creed Odyssey? What carries over in NG+? In this quick guide, we're going to go over everything that you need to know.

How to start New Game + in Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Starting NG+ in Assassin's Creed Odyssey is easy enough. Simply load the save that you want to carry over, pause the game, go to the main system menu (where you save and load your game), and select 'New Game+'.

However, there is one requirement that you need to fulfil before New Game + becomes available: you need to have completed all of the main story quests in Assassin's Creed Odyssey. These are the quests that are at the top of your quest journal when you aren't using any filters.

Once they're all completed, you should be able to select the 'New Game+' option.

It's important to note that starting New Game+ will gradually overwrite your autosaves. If you want to keep your old save, you'll need to make a manual save on a new save slot before starting New Game+.

What carries over to New Game + in Assassin's Creed Odyssey?

Aside from story and quest completion, just about all of the progress that you've made in Assassin's Creed Odyssey carries over to NG+.

Here's a list of what carries over to New Game +:

  • Your level and mastery levels
  • Your unlocked abilities
  • All of your weapons and armour (both equipped and stored in your stash)
  • Your ship upgrades
  • Your ship cosmetics
  • Any ship lieutenants that you acquired from the in-game store/Ubisoft Club
  • All of your resources, including orichalcum
  • All of your drachmae (money)

Here's a list of what doesn't carry over to New Game +:

  • Story progression
  • Quest progression
  • Map markers
  • Location completion (all opened chests, etc., will be reset)
  • Cultist progression

Legendary weapons and armours aren't obtainable again in New Game +. Instead of getting a duplicate item, your existing legendary equipment will simply upgrade to your current level.

Can you change to Alexios/Kassandra in New Game +?

Yes, you can change your character in Assassin's Creed Odyssey's New Game + mode. If you played through the game as Alexios the first time around, you'll be given the option to switch to Kassandra, and vice versa, when you first select New Game + from the menu.

Changing character does not alter the things that carries over to NG+. Your armour will look different depending on which main character is wearing it, but aside from that, all of your NG+ progression remains.

Is there a reward for beating New Game +?

No, Ubisoft says that there's no reward for completing Assassin's Creed Odyssey on New Game +.
