How does New Game Plus work in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor?

Upon reaching the end credits in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you’ll be met with an option to start over again in New Game Plus. Rather than beginning from scratch, however, all unlocked stances, skill points, and cosmetics carry over with each subsequent playthrough.

This means you can replay the very start of the game with all combat options available, a number of dazzling new looks for Cal at the ready, and all of your upgraded skills still intact. There’s even a few surprises to boot, more on that below.

Bonuses in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s New Game Plus mode

When jumping into New Game Plus, players have a few new options on their hands. Much like in Fallen Order, a repeat playthrough comes with a handful of new perks and of course, some spectacular lightsaber colors as well. Speaking of the former, three new Perks are available exclusively in this mode and they function as follows:

  • Purity
    • This glass cannon-like mode dramatically shifts how Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is played, emphasizing lightsaber lethality by massively increasing damage dealt by friends and enemies, with both Cal and enemies dying in 1-to-3 hits depending on the weapon.
  • Warrior
    • Completely remixes most combat encounters with new (and usually more difficult) groups of enemies.
  • Trendsetter
    • Randomizes your cosmetics on death.

“The only thing I’ll say… we understand that players want more, they want a bigger game,” he said. “In regard to how that unfolds… play the game, you’ll find out.”

Jedi Survivor is certainly a much bigger game than Fallen Order.

So exactly what Respawn had in store, was kept under wraps until the game hit store shelves. But based on those comments, it’s clear the devs knew how much of a demand there was for New Game Plus, and worked hard to meet expectations at launch this time around.
