New Game Plus for Code Vein contains information regarding the following assets that can be brought into playing another playthrough after finishing the game for the first time. Players will see some differences with the initial playthrough, and get to carry over certain progress.

 

New Game Plus for Code Vein

How to Unlock New Game +

  • Complete the final boss battle.
  • Proceed through the large door beyond the Mistle at Home Base

What changes in New Game +

  • You can choose to Enhance difficulty, increasing damage and health of enemies, or replay the game at its base difficulty.
  • Enhanced enemies will give more Haze.
  • All items and chests will respawn.

 Important Notes about New Game +

  • The player can choose to lower their difficulty if the current NG+ cycle proves to be too hard for them.
    • To do so they must fullfill the same conditions above (complete final boss, go through large door in Home Base), and then choose to lower their difficulty for the next playthrough
      • This will remove the Star mark indicating your NG cycle in your save file, until the current playthrough is brought back to the original NG cycle
  • The enemy damage and health increases exponentially with each higher New Game + cycle, until it reaches a point where every single enemy can kill you in one hit. Players must exercise caution when increasing their NG+ cycle.
  • Going into a higher NG+ cycle increases the level cap per area for obtaining Gift Experience.

What carries over to New Game +

  • Retain current level and items.
  • Retain current Blood Codes, Gifts, and trade points with home base NPCs.
  • Retains map clearance (rotten Mistles remain purified, normal Mistles need to be activated).
  • Retains acquired companions.
  • Retains acquired Depths maps, excluding DLC ones (those can be easliy obtained once player reach home instance. There is green star on the bridge next to Davis that allows teleportation to additional area where maps can be found).

What doesn't carry over to New Game +

  • Chemical lights and blood markers will be removed.
  • Mistles and doors locations won't show on map until re-explored.
  • Doors/ladders/elevators will reset to their original state.
  • Key items get removed and will need to be found again.
  • NPC quests will reset.
  • Store Inventories Reset (Weapons/Armor will still unlock automatically if present in your inventory, depending on progress in game.)
  • Depths progression resets (Keys for the boss door need to be found again).
  • Vestiges disappear (You will need to find them again if you wish to restore the Successors).

      My new game plus just isn't activating. Got true ending first run, went through the door, and it kicks me to the main menu. Loading my save puts me before the final boss. Help?

        This might be the stupidest question, i got the true ending on first play. And after this and that, I've return to title screen. My question is, does the NG+ show the "+" or just "New Game"?

          I realize this game is relatively new and not as popular as Dark Souls and the like, but it's frustrating that there's so much info missing on the wiki. So from reading the comments I gather that NG+6 is the highest difficulty? Though someone said there's still a very small increase in enemy HP at NG+7. If that's true, do enemies ever stop gaining HP? And at what NG+ level?

            How do I delete my ng+ file without deleting my first game playthrough? I wanted a new game in a different file but apparently it restarts the game on the same file and I hate that, I really want to go back.

              The chemical lights and the blood markers don't get removed. And the maps of the depths also stay in your inventory.

              • Anonymous

                I didn’t need to refund all the depths maps in my second play through. In fact, I completed the depths all the way through the void district on ng+ before even finishing the flaming city.

                  What about inherited gift ? do i still have all the blood code and the gift ? or i still must look for the blood code / core but all the gift remains inherited ? or its reset all over again

                  • Anonymous

                    Do i have to restore all the vestiges to get the queen code or just the ones i didn't restore in the first run through?

                      Transforming weapons - even though I can use Jack as a partner, and had him unlocked in my first go-around, I can't get Heimdall chrome again until I re-unlock him in this new NG+? That blows, I decided to transform a weapon from Heimdall to something else; my damage went down a lot, and I wanted to transform it back, but no chrome... :( Is there no way to get it?

                        If I start NG+, will I be able to revisit my save before entering NG+? I'm trying to figure out if going through NG+ is worth it since I've collected almost everything on this character.

                        • So one thing I found out after NG+ about three times is you cant go back. Sure you can go back down to the last difficulty you beat it at but you can't ever go back to normal. I don't see an option to turn off the ng scaling either. So if that means you're like me and you want to test things at different levels, well you cant~ I was hoping to find a save game editor or something that would let me change it as well but cant find that either. Guess Ill have to make different characters.

                            i got true ending in first run and i didnt start new game plus yet to get the missing blood codes, wondering if i get the bad ending does it effect how the DLC will play if i start it or do i have to do a 3rd run for true ending again before heading to DLC?

                              Silly question but can ng+ characters help people in their first playthrough? I don't want to beat the game and leave my wife behind lol

                                NG+ feels a tad bit unfair. Literally everything 1-2 shots you. The health pools are perfect but the damage is just downright ridiculous.

                                • Am I right in assuming that, if I were to restart the game without increasing difficulty, the game would just be replayed with the same Level 1 difficulty as I did the first time around with no other gameplay changes? Kudos to the dev team giving people the option to go back so easily and for making the new mode; the bigger health chunks on bosses and stuff now means I have to actually learn and pay attention to what bosses like Butterfly of Delerium and Invading Executioner do instead of just kind of flailing in their general direction and winning somehow (making it feel a bit more like a souls game), but goddamn do they pump out way too much damage.

                                    I have a question, whenever in a new game plus and complete the campaign does it allow you to restart? I got the good ending in my first run but want to get all the blood codes and fear that if I do a new game plus and it's a bad ending that it won't allow me to go to the next DLC on the character

                                      I just finished the game (first playthrough for reasons) then my controller fell and it not ng+ is there a way to raise it without finishing again?

                                        Just started ng+ and I accidentally misclicked. Now I'm not sure if I chose enhanced difficulty or not. Enemies in the ruined city now feels like endgame enemies in the 1st playthrough. I also notice there is an option in homebase to reduce the difficulty (they added this in the new update). Is this option available if I chose normal ng+ without enhanced?

                                          The Friendly npcs dudebros are pointless in ng+ .They keep dying over and over and they dont help you in desesperate times...

                                            If you do a NG+ you can change companions at mistle but does it means only the ones that you have at that point of history or the ones that you unlocked in your previous run are avaliable too?

                                              I had an mistake. There are harder difficulty than +6. When you increase difficulty +6 to next, It's also +6, but more difficult than +6(Before). Yon can think like this [ +6 -> a little bit harder +6 ] If you increase your difficulty +6(more hard version) to +7, Now, Your save file will indicate NG+7. NG+7 shows obvious enemy enhancement. (ex. 3588HP -> 4503HP). Sorry to my poor english.

                                                For some reason, none of my unmastered Gifts can be mastered if I try doing so after I selected New Game + on the same difficulty as my first game.

                                                  Maximun NGPlus is +6. If you increase your difficulty to +7, only small amount of enemy HP is increase and there are no haze improvement. For example, an enemy with 3548HP is improved to 3566HP. also, The load file indicates +6 difficulty although you increased the difficulty to NG+7

                                                    Question: I'm on NG++. Since I choose enchanced difficulty for NG+, will that choice stay the same for the option "remain at same difficulty" or will it revert back to normal difficulty after beating the game again?

                                                    • Anonymous

                                                      “replay the game at its base difficulty, increasing damage and health of enemies.” If I’m not reading this wrong, this means replaying NG+ at base difficulty will give you enemies with higher health & damage? I started NG+ with enhanced enemies, their damage are insane but I could still survive but my buddies all got 1-2 shots after the Catheral and since there is no option for us to lower the difficulty back to the default one, I started a new save because I got tired of saving my buddies with Gift Heal only for them to die on me in like less than 2 seconds. Can anybody confirm this? Thank you.

                                                        On starting NG+ does Cocos shop stuff reset like having to start from steel to titanium again? And are there new items?

                                                          Once you beat the final boss and you get to the Credits screen you can continue from just before the last boss. To start a new game you interact with the Wooden Door at The Main Base.

                                                            I don't have internet connection in my house so I have to ask. Without the day one patch does new game plus difficulty scale up by default?

                                                              Do you also keep vestages? I haven't found all of them and killed a few of the bosses unaware of the alternative endings. Can I keep the ones I have and search for the rest or do I to find them again?

                                                                Heads up for those who thought the enhanced NG+ is similar to Soulsborne games, they are similar, but NG+1 with enhanced is almost like NG+7 on Soulsborne games. You will need to time your dodge very well because it's almost a 1 shot city. Quickstep build is pretty much the best build, you can't facetank the enemies attacks just like in NG. Dex and Mage build is probably the best, you have mobility and high damage. If you're worry about mobbing, I'd suggest you use stealth to get through everything, for bosses, you just have to git gud(no joke). Nothing new in NG+, you're just going through the game again, all items and placement are all the same. Haze gain will increase if you go for enhanced, it won't increase if you go for standard difficulty. Going through the whole map while killing all those enemies will net you around 1m Haze, while bosses are around few hundred thousand.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  I'd suggest skipping NG+ difficulty bump unless you made a flawless pass at the game. Every single one of Mido's attacks is one-shot-killing my Hades build in heavy armor at lvl 207.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I watched the credits and the bonus scene. I even got the in-game notification about new game plus. I went back and grinded up to about lvl 150, got a bunch of Multiplayer Tokens, and now I'm ready for New Game Plus. My save file has the "Star" button on it, saying I cleared it, but every time I go to "New Game" it doesn't give me a plus option. Just starts a True New Game, what gives?

                                                                    • Anonymous

If you've managed to view and finish the Vestiges of the Succesors, but missed one or W/E, do you still need to Re-Visit and do the Succesor Vestiges over again to meet the requirements for the two endings, For Eternity and Dweller In The Dark if you start a New Game+? Personally trying to get the Dweller In The Dark. I missed Nicolas, like a dang retard.
