New Game Plus is a patched-in feature of Ghost of Tsushima (GoT).

Players often see some differences with the initial playthrough, and get to carry over certain progress.
Ghost of Tsushima New Game Plus
Is there New Game Plus?
What is NG+? New Game Plus is where players will get to re-run the game with all the upgrades and unlocks that have been obtained from the first playthrough. Ghost of Tsushima New Game plus is part of the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends Free patch of October 16th 2020.
What are the Features of NG+
If you’ve already beaten Ghost of Tsushima, you’ll find the option to re-embark on Jin’s Journey in New Game+. You’ll start New Game+ from the release to the open world, shortly after Jin’s initial confrontation with the Khan. You’ll keep all of the Techniques, Gear, and Vanity items obtained in a previous playthrough, and difficulty will be increased to provide a new challenge (but you can still adjust it down in the menu). Players will also be rewarded with a new horse (Mount) that features a red mane, as well as a unique saddle.
What about new Equipment?
To unlock the new equipment you need the Ghost Flowers that are a new type of currency, available only in New Game Plus, accepted by Baku the Voiceless. He will trade new dyes, armors and charms for Ghost flowers. They are rewarded to the player for completing tasks in New Game+ that have already been completed.
What about new GoT: Legends Mission Types
- Story Missions: Designed for two players, and take you through Gyozen’s stories about what’s really happening in Tsushima. When you unlock higher difficulties, you’ll face new encounters, tougher enemies, bonus objectives, and greater rewards.
- Survival Missions: Team up with three other players to fight off waves of enemies while defending different locations in Tsushima. You and your team can activate blessings to help yourselves, like “ignite enemies” or “summon a Spirit Bear.” The longer you survive and the more bonus objectives you complete, the more rewards you’ll earn!
- Raid: You’ll need all your skill, top-tier gear, and a great 4-player team to be able to survive in Iyo’s realm! The Raid is an epic three-part adventure that will require excellent teamwork and communication to overcome.
What happens after finishing the game?
When players finish the game, you can re-run the game for the second time. If you do not have the NG+ patch, this means completing all the main quests, side quests, mythic tales, retrieving collectibles, unlocking all the skills and techniques, and reacquiring all your armor, as well as weapon upgrades.
Also, are a new type of character only available with Ghost of Tsushima: Legends DLC. To access the new classes you can speak to Gyozen, and he will give you access to the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends lobby, or you can also get there directly from the title menu or the pause menu or by accepting a PSN invitation from a friend.
What about obtained Trophies?
The PS4 Trophies you've unlocked won't disappear. It will be there permanently as your unlocked achievement once you've met the criteria for unlocking a trophy. But if you've missed some that require you to finish the game or reach certain parts of the game, it's going to be a long playthrough for you. But hey, if you're a completionist and if you enjoy playing the game, it's no harm done hopping into the game the second time around. Make sure to check our Trophy & Achievement Guide page to find a list of all the trophies and how to obtain them.
