Spiders has released a major update for its action RPG Steelrising, adding New Game Plus along with various fixes. New Game Plus allows for replaying the game while carrying over progress from another playthrough. While your level, weapons and upgrades remain, the difficulty will be higher as enemy variations with new skins, weapons and moves appear.

Fortunately, there are new weapons and a new outfit to discover, so New Game Plus has some benefits. If one has finished the game, their save automatically converts to New Game Plus, and a new option for the mode appears in the main menu.

Other features of this patch include fixes for the infinite item glitch and various Achievements. Assist mode also won’t prevent players from earning Achievements. If you’ve fulfilled the conditions for any of them, then they’ll retroactively unlock. Interestingly, the game balance has also been tweaked. Bosses gain increased damage, armor and resistances, while the damage, loot quantity and shop quantity of Grenades have been reduced.

Check out the full patch notes below for more details. Steelrising is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC. You can check out our review for the base game here.

New Game Plus

This patch adds New Game Plus to Steelrising! It allows you to play the game again on a higher difficulty level while keeping your character’s progress (level, weapons, upgrades etc.).

There’s also new content to discover in New Game Plus:

  • Exclusive weapons to use;
  • A full exclusive outfit to discover;
  • Exclusive enemy variations (new skins, weapons and movesets) to fight.

All you need to do to enjoy the new content is to reach the end of the game. Once you have done so, your save will be automatically able to be converted to a NG+ save (and yes, should you already be at the end of the game, it will do so automatically as well), and a new option in the menu called “New Game Plus” will appear. Safe travel in the heart of Paris!

  • Fixed and improved the cinematics and NPC dialogues.
  • Fixed and improved various audio issues.
