Dubbed a next-gen sci-fi horror experience, Motive Studio, and EA's Dead Space Remake will once again put players in the boots of Isaac Clarke on the USG Ishimura. The game, rebuilt from the ground up and with additional sidequests, should take players well over a dozen hours to beat. What adds even more game time to any title, including Dead Space Remake, is a New Game Plus (NG+) mode.
This article explains if Dead Space Remake has a New Game Plus mode, how you can unlock it, and details about what carries over in your second, horrifying trip inside of the USG Ishimura, so let's get started.
New Game Plus (NG+) Mode in Dead Space Remake?
The original Dead Space had a New Game Plus mode, although it was a bit underwhelming. We are happy to report that Dead Space Remake will have a New Game Plus mode.
This was confirmed by Jo Berry, writer for Dead Space, via an interview with Inverse, who said:
You'd definitely benefit from going through the USG Ishimura a second time.
How To Unlock Dead Space Remake NG+ Mode
While nothing is confirmed at the moment, we are 99% sure you will have to beat the game's story to unlock the New Game Plus mode. This is how it works for nearly all titles with a NG+ mode, so Dead Space Remake will very likely be the same.
If the Dead Space Remake's NG+ mode will be worth is, well, that remains to be seen. With new side quests added, players might want to experience them if they decided just to follow the main story. It is also a great way to challenge yourself, complete achievements, find audio logs and more.
Dead Space Remake New Game Plus Mode Details
At the time of writing, there are no additional details on the New Game Plus mode in Dead Space Remake.
If other titles are anything to go by, we suspect the NG+ mode in Dead Space Remake will allow you to carry over some abilities, items, and weapons unlocked during your first playthrough. We also suspect that items needed to progress the story will not carry over.
So there you have it, details on the NG+ mode in Dead Space Remake. We will endeavor to update this article as soon as more information becomes available. While you wait, check out the Dead Space Remake launch trailer to get hyped for your return to USG Ishimura.
