How to Start New Game Plus

When players complete a playthrough of A Plague Tale: Requiem, they are given the option to start a new game plus playthrough. You can start new game plus from the main menu, which will give you three options for your save data, which include: selecting the save data, erasing it, or starting a new game plus run (as seen in the graphic above). On PlayStation 5, you can use the triangle button from this menu, but if you are playing on Nintendo Switch, PC, or Xbox Series X|S, use the correct corresponding button to create a new game plus playthrough.

What Carries Over from the First Playthrough?

New game plus allows players to carry over their skills and upgrades prior to exploring Requiem’s “special difficulty level.” Also, upon completion of the campaign, you will receive a crossbow customization item, which can help Amicia kill enemies in style. However, the weapon’s stats are not changed, as the customization item is solely cosmetic, and the crossbow’s functionality is contingent on its upgrades and the player’s own skill using it.
