Bend Studio is implementing New Game Plus and two new difficulty modes on Days Gone next week, it announced. The release is expected to drop on the PlayStation 4 exclusive post-apocalyptic open-world game on Sept. 13.
New Game Plus can start from any save game where a player has finished the “I’m Never Giving Up” storyline.
You can play NG+ on any difficulty level; Easy, Normal, Hard, Survival, or try it in one of our two new difficulty modes: Hard II and Survival II. It doesn’t matter what previous difficulty mode a player finished it. However, these new difficulty modes are not specific to NG+ and can be experienced by brand-new players as well.
Also, Bend Studio is introducing new trophies available to earn in two new NG+ modes. “Including one related to a mysterious new weapon from an agent that only operates in the shadows,” hinted the team.
As you can see, the developer is not limiting itself to challenges to fuel its open-world title. Days Gone might have started not on par with the likes of God of War and Spider-Man, but it’s, sure enough, a substantial experience.
