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?


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. – Adeese Dec 16 '11 at 14:12
  • @Adeese Ah yeah, I'll edit that in, forgot that one. – FAE Dec 16 '11 at 15:46
  • Any different in story? – Rev Dec 17 '11 at 4:56
  • @Rev No, there are no differences in the story or ending. – FAE Dec 17 '11 at 13:44
  • @Ztugugigi No, that's how the normal game starts, assuming you unlocked the Catwoman DLC before you started the game. – deworde Sep 21 '12 at 8:54
