2 years since my last playthrough, first time on new game+ mode

Although, the PS5 and a sequel to the PS4 behemoth title known as “Spider-Man: Miles Morales”, I still sometimes think back to the original Spider-Man title released in 2018. All the new hype has put me in the mood of dusting off the game from my digital shelf and giving it a “spin” on my system’s hard drive disk.

Upon loading up the game, it reminded me that I never tried playing a “New Game+” version of the single-player, open-world, web-swinging experience.

Here’s “Part 1” of my “New Game+” gameplay below:

For those that haven’t tried “New Game+” mode, you get to start a new game with the stats from a game save where you completed the game. This includes all the stats, suits, and gear from the selected game save as well. In my case, I got to start fresh at level 50.

Although it has been over 2 years since the date I last touched my completed game save, swinging through the big apple came back rather quickly. Almost naturally, like when I first starting playing the game. Re-synchronizing the Osborne tower for NYPD… finding Peter’s backpack… swinging through the dynamic Manhattan skylines… it was all welcoming.

The swinging itself even brings a relaxing effect. Something that is especially wonderful to experience within the raunchy dumpster fire known as 2020.

Have any of you played the “new game+” mode in Spider-Man since its debut in late 2018? If not, I would definitely give it a go as these kinds of features in single-player, open-world games add a whole other level of replayability.
