New Game Plus in The Surge 2 will be covered in this page. It refers to subsequent playthroughs of the game using the same character once the Final Boss is defeated.


New Game Plus

New Game Plus starts immediately after beating the final boss. You do not have the choice to stay on New Game.

Changes with Game Plus :

  • Enemies have more hit points, deal more damage but also give more Tech Scraps.
  • The player has access to higher equipment tiers.
    • All gear gives the same tier as in NG but +10 in NG+ (MK I becomes MK XI and so on).
      • The max level of the equipment is Mk. XX, which the player gets at around the end of NG+. In NG++ and beyond, every enemy drops Mk. XX materials, although they continue to scale up in strength while the player's upgrades cap out at Mk. XX.
    • Injectables can be upgraded beyond MK V, up to MK X.
  • End game Technogenesis enemies can now be found in multiple places.
  • The opening segment will be expanded to show the player what happened on CREO Flight 221.
    • This also allows the player to obtain the NG+ exclusive weapon Codename: Siegfried.
  • If the player chooses to kill the final boss in their previous playthrough, their eyes will be permanently glowing in the new game.

What carries over to New Game Plus :

  • Core level.
  • Tech scraps.
  • Weapons.
  • Every piece of armor, crafted or not.
  • Implants.
  • Companion drone modules.
  • Audio files.

What DOESN'T carry over to New Game Plus :

  • Quest items and key items.
  • Upgrade components.
    • Any weapons not upgraded to Mk. X in the first playthrough can be upgraded to Mk. XI straight away in NG+.
  • The Exo-Rig and companion drone.
    • Both are unlocked again with full functionalities when advancing the story.

      I'm getting a negative tech scrap number when trying to buy from Molly in NG+, is there a way that I can fix that and if I wasn't able to complete armor sets during round 1 will I be able to complete them now?

          I have gotten so far as ng+6 and the enemies are brutal with taking half of your health with one punch and can't seem to do the second brother eli fight in C.I.T.

            I just started ng+ and the second enemy after the very fist drone is already a Technogenesis enemy. i cant see their health bars because i've got no implants yet and i cant dodge them. Blocking costs all of my stamina and i still lose 90% of my health. the problem is that it even splits into 2 enemies after hittinng it a few times so there are two guys onehitting me. can only try to run past them

              When I try to play NG+ I keep getting brought back to the choice of killing or sparing Eli. How do I start NG+ or is my save bugged and I'll have to start all over?

                  Should I sell all the weapons i dont use and farm for them again to get the free XI instead of wasting materials to upgrade them from Mark I to whatever?

                    This is wrong, crafting materials dont transfer to new game plus. I spent about 2 hours grinding out ~20 of EVERY Mark X crafting material at the end of new game. As soon as I start new game plus, they're all gone. Was really irritated but still, yo uh cant get mark Xi instantly so doesnt really matter. Just a fair warning

                    • I think player's max gear/weapon level is MK XX (level 20). I reached NG++, enemy Level go beyond 20, now their level is 26. I think the developer want us to enjoy the challenge.
