Starting a new standard game, a player must choose between easy, normal, veteran, and elite modes. After beating the final boss, you can start New Game Plus. Are there also 4 difficulty levels for New Game Plus? If so, do you choose the difficulty again or does it carry over from your character's last game?

You can change your difficulty any time you resume your game. – Sadly Not Sep 28 '12 at 2:45
the question is- does new game-plus have 4 tiers of difficulties – jzn Sep 28 '12 at 4:36
@SadlyNot Yeah but only in LAN or via console which will flag you as cheater. – ChrisHateZ Sep 28 '12 at 8:20

Upon accepting and finishing the quest that gives you NG+, you will be booted back to the initial character loading screen (where you can switch between characters etc.).

You can then choose to Resume to play on your character, that is now in NG+ mode. This means its level will remain the same, aswell as the skills and stats.
All your progress however is lost, so you start with a new world and the same quests you did before. You do however still have access to the Mapworks by using any Waypoint Portal.

You are not prompted to change the difficulty mode at any time (a pity in my eyes), so your difficulty setting is carried over.

You can ofcourse always change the difficulty setting if you want, as explained in this post.

  • makes the enemy level to scale with yours
  • unlock higher level items
  • reset the story and quests (the quests rewards will also scale with your level)


  • scales enemy damage, health, defense. (e.g in normal enemy does 100% damage, has 100% health and defense)

so NG+ doesn't change that percentage but merely scales the level and items. you could, however, change your difficulty by playing LAN or Online mode.
