Here’s a quick rundown on how to start your New Game Plus playthrough:
- Download and install the NG+ DLC through your method of choice (depends on whether you’re using Steam, GOG, or manual install) – this will update you to the 1.08.2 Patch.
- Finish the main quest line (this is when you are moved to Kaer Morhen fortress with the story finished and all the characters are gone) or load up a save that takes place after you’ve finished the game. You should get the following message:
- Click ok and save your current game session.
- Quit to Main Menu and click new game. Choose your desired options (difficulty, tutorials, etc) – when the “New Game +” window comes up, choose “On”. You will then need to choose the save you just made to start New Game +
- That’s it, enjoy!
P.S. To differentiate between game saves made in normal and New Game + modes, look for the + sign next to the save screenshot.
