Sony and Santa Monica Studio just detailed the God of War New Game+ mode and announced the release date.

If you missed it (how could you), God of War is fantastic. Read our review here. Chris has some more recent thoughts on how it has changed gaming for him. The NG+ releases on August 20 and here’s what it includes:

Relive the journey of Kratos and Atreus with all of your previous armors, enchantments, talismans, resources and abilities on the difficulty of your choosing.
Test your skills against higher level enemies; some of which might even have a few new tricks up their sleeves!
Unique to New Game+ is a brand new rarity level of equipment to craft and upgrade! Collect ‘Skap Slag’, a new resource to upgrade your gear to the best of the best from our finest blacksmiths.
Play the game in a whole new way by exploring new customization options with extremely powerful new armor sets and enchantments.
Finally, get right back into the action with the newly added ability to skip through cinematics in both normal and New Game+ modes once a full play through has been completed.

God of War is available on PS4. This is the largest update to hit and quite a big free update overall. The patch drops on August 20.
