If you're playing on Steam, there shouldn't be any major issues. If you're on gog - same thing, but make sure you've redownloaded all the free DLC.So, finishing HoS left a witchery itch that needs scratching. I intend to do that by starting a NG +. Thing is I heard it's broken after the newest patch. Is this true (then I'd wait) or can I safely begin with NG +?
Thanks in advance guys
Yep, I'm on gog, so I'll give it a try! Thanks for the quick answer.If you're playing on Steam, there shouldn't be any major issues. If you're on gog - same thing, but make sure you've redownloaded all the free DLC.
On consoles, the free DLC won't work on NG+ (until the fix is released), and any DLC items in your inventory will be removed (and it's likely they won't be auto-restored once the fix on consoles is out).
So, if you're okay with those things, then playing NG+ should be fine.
I know how you feel, dude I was intending to wait for a second playthrough some time after the second expansion, but looks like this plan got cancelled.I started a fresh new game 2 days ago. 6th playthrough.. omg I need help
Play on the hardest difficulty and then levels almost don't matter. Enemy attacks inflict heavy damage all the time so you gotta be always careful. I've also heard that your mastercrafted armor becomes quickly useless so you could use your gear from normal game the whole time in NG +, if you find it too easy.As far as I remember, NG+ doesn't adapt to the player level, but assumes lvl 30+ and is balanced accordingly. Did that change with HoS? Starting a NG+ with level 39 and everyone being somewhere between level 30 and maybe 35 doesn't sound too exciting.
Yeah CDPR said that you can start NG+ off any Geralt.. even the pre-made Geralt you get if you start Hos from the main-menu.only once.
edit: you can start ng+ as many times as you want but you will always have to load your save game that you used to finish your normal game.
