However, not everything does carry over from the previous file in Guardians of the Galaxy new game plus. Below are the elements that are not present in a new game plus for Guardians of the Galaxy: 

  • Units 
  • Choices and consequences
  • Guardian Collectibles 
  • Special items acquired during the campaign 
  • Elemental abilities (ice, wind etc.)
