How to Start New Game Plus

Once you've unlocked it, players will be able to start New Game Plus from the pause menu, the option now clearly visible. You will have to be in the loaded save file you wish to carry equipment over though - you can't start it from the main menu.

Can You Change Between Alexios and Kassandra in New Game Plus?

Yes, you can! Players will be able to repeat and change choices they made in the previous game, essentially starting the story from scratch, and which character you play as is one of those choices. It won't impact what abilities or equipment you can have, only changing a few very minor story elements and what kind of performance the two characters give.
