I finished "Batman: Arkham City" last night. So after that, New Game mode opened as "Story+".

Why should I play that? What differences are there between this and the main story mode?

1 Answer 1


There are a few differences between the two modes.

  • Enemies do more damage and have better AI
  • Enemies have upgraded equipment
  • No counterattack indicator

You start off with all the upgrades from your Normal/Hard playthrough. Riddler trophies also carry over.

The only "tangible" reward you get for completing the game in New Game+ mode are the two achievements Twice Nightly, for finishing New Game+, and Perfect Knight - Day 2, the requirements for which are listed in the question I just linked. Otherwise, it's just there if you want to play through the game again with more challenge.

  • There is also an achievement for just finishing New Game+ - "Twice Nightly", I think.

  • @Ztugugigi No, that's how the normal game starts, assuming you unlocked the Catwoman DLC before you started the game.
