If you're playing Stellar Blade and want to learn how to start afresh after finishing the game without losing your collected costumes, Cans, and unlocked skills, a recent update added New Game Plus.

This fan-favourite mode was added to Stellar Blade ahead of its global release, and to use it, players have to follow a few steps to get into it - so here's a rundown of what you'll need to know. 


There are some minor content spoilers for the end of Stellar Blade here, so proceed at your own caution!

Starting a New Game Plus save

In Stellar Blade, you can start the New Game Plus mode from the main menu after completing the game and selecting the 'New Game+' option. 

Make sure you have the latest update downloaded for the game. As mentioned, the mode is not included from the outset and comes with an update, which usually gets auto-downloaded and installed if you're connected to an active internet connection.

The only real rewards for completing the game were the Raven outfit and the Hard difficulty mode, but with the New Game Plus update installed, when you start your second playthrough using the said option, you'll get access to every skill, item, costume, and collectable unlocked in your first playthrough, along with new skills and upgrade enhancements. 

However, once you start your New Game Plus, your progress will reset. So if you want to keep your save file of the first playthrough, make sure to back it up with cloud storage.
