New game plus

The Chosen Undead wearing the Black Knight Set

For the Dark Souls II variant, see New Game Plus (Dark Souls II).
For the Dark Souls III variant, see New Game Plus (Dark Souls III).

New Game Plus is a gameplay mechanic in Dark Souls.

New Game+, or NG+ is entered once the Chosen Undead defeats Gwyn, Lord of Cinder and chooses to either Link the Fire or usher in the Age of Dark. Choosing either ending will have no effect on New Game+.

DifferencesEdit

The story and events in New Game+ are identical to New Game. The primary difference is an increase in game difficulty, in the form of more powerful enemies, and greater reward in souls for their defeat. The player keeps all non-story based acquired weapons, armor, items and rings. Additionally, bonfires kindled in New Game remain kindled in New Game+.

Items lostEdit

Exceptions are the Master Key and the Bottomless Box, which are not lost.

New Game+ and beyondEdit

Once the player reaches the end again they will start with an even harder difficulty and an increase in souls received from enemies but only marginally so. Enemies gain 2, 3, or 4 times the damage and souls while health usually only doubles. After this, the increase is minute. The difficulty increase stops at New Game+6.
