Stellar Blade launches tomorrow, and that’s just the beginning of Eve’s mission to save humanity one slice at a time. Today we at Shift Up are excited to reveal that New Game Plus will be coming to Stellar Blade at launch on April 26, so players can continue their journey across Xion after the credits roll. The new mode included expanded gear levels, new costumes to wear, and a suite of new skills.

Before we dive into the New Game Plus details, let’s take a look at the Stellar Blade launch trailer showing off the exhilarating sci-fi melee combat that awaits.

New Game Plus details revealed

Alright, let’s dig into what players can look forward to after finishing Stellar Blade the first time.

Expanded wardrobe

In our upcoming New Game Plus, you can acquire new costumes and accessories for Eve, as well as additional costumes for Adam, Lily, and the Drone.

You can try re-opening the chests where you previously got your costumes or revisit the shops that sell them. You may also want to replay quests to earn costumes you missed on your first playthrough.

There are a whopping 34 new outfits for Eve to earn in New Game Plus, including five accessories, and two cosmetics each for Adam, Lily, and the Drone.

I’m particularly fond of the Crew Style outfit.

The Crew Style is only available in the New Game Plus chest, so keep your eyes peeled for it.

Level expansions for Eve’s Gear

Level expansion for Weapon, Body Core, Beta Core and Tumbler:

  • Weapon – 15 -> 40
  • Body – 6 -> 9
  • Beta – 6 -> 9
  • Tumbler – 5 -> 13
  • Remaining cores could be sold at SP0-tt2r’s shop to acquire Vitcoin, which could be used to purchase new costume items.

Players who have seen the ending of the game can challenge themselves on harder difficulties. To fight tougher enemies, Eve will also need to get stronger.

In New Game Plus, in addition to continuing your progression, you’ll be able to collect Cores to power up Eve’s weapons, HP, and Beta Energy even more than in the base game.

You can also further enhance your Tumbler, increasing the amount of HP it heals at once.

You can also upgrade your Drone to increase the power of your ranged attacks.

After you’ve completed all of your upgrades, you can sell the Core items you earn to SP0-tt2r to purchase new costumes.

New skills

In New Game Plus, you’ll be able to earn Infinite skills that are enhancements to existing Beta Skills.

  • 4 new Beta skill moves
  • 8 new skills to enhance Beta/Burst skills
  • 5 new Drone skills


Beta Skill: Infinite Slash

Infinite Pierce, an enhancement to Quadruplet, lets you unleash a devastating blow to enemies.

Beta Skill: Infinite Pierce

Or you can shred the enemy’s shields with Infinite Breaker.

Beta Skill: Infinite Breaker

Not only Beta Skills can be enhanced, but Burst Skills as well, so defeat the enemies and earn SP (Skill Points) to unlock them all.

Other New Game Plus changes

Eve’s gears and Exospine will also receive new enhancements.

These Mk2 enhancements to existing gear will allow players to personalize their approach to the game.

Why not boost your attack speed to corner your enemies with attacks, or convert the damage you take into Beta Energy and send it back at them?

You can also enhance your shield penetration to ignore enemy shields.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by stronger enemies, we recommend collecting and combining Mk2 gear.

Also, in keeping with Eve’s evolution, enemies on harder difficulties are stronger.

Enemies may also be repositioned in New Game Plus, so keep your guard up!
