How to unlock New Game Plus in Elden Ring

Just like in every other Soulsborne title, and multiple video games, unlocking New Game Plus mode in Elden Ring is quite a simple process, but maybe not an easy feat.

To unlock the New Game Plus mode in Elden Ring, players will need to complete the game's story. After the credits roll, you will be able to select New Game Plus mode.

We've recently learned that if you take the golden path, you can complete Elden Ring's story in roughly 30 hours. Keep in mind that this will vary significantly depending on player skill, as Elden Ring is a tough-as-nails experience.

Players will face "powered-up enemies" in Elden Ring's New Game+ mode, as expected. This mode will also allow players to experiment with new builds and weapons. Keep in mind that with each playthrough, the enemies get stronger, so you will always have a challenge.

Yasuhiro Kitao talks about Elden Ring's size and New Game+ mode: "This has always been a feature of our games…In fact, with the world being so vast, the game is designed so that it can be cleared without necessarily experiencing everything. Some players will prefer to try and explore the entire map the first time, while others will leave some areas for exploration in second or subsequent cycles."
