The game's patch 1.30 has introduced a load of brand new features for Aloy to try out, including a New Game+ and ultra hard difficulty.

All players will get the benefit of fixes to progression issues that have lingered in the game, however if you've finished the game and want an excuse to head back New Game+ lets you take all your existing progress and inventory and carry it through to a new play through. Enemies will have enhanced senses and behave more more intelligently, while the player won't be able to regenerate their health as quickly.

Alongside these two new modes, Guerilla has also updated existing outfits and weapons with an extra modification slot.

New Game+ Completed (Bronze) - Completed a New Game+ playthrough on any difficulty.

In line with this, they have released a new #Patch for the game that adds another mode. Full patch notes can be seen below.

Horizon Zero Dawn developers Guerrilla Games recently showed off more of their DLC, The Frozen Wilds, at E3 which was met with much excitement for the highly praised title.

Playing New Game+ isn't without its rewards, though; the mode will give you the opportunity to add facepaint to Aloy, or change her Focus.

It's go Ultra Hard or go home. New Game+ will have two new trophies associated with it.
