New Game Plus (NG+) is a game type in Torchlight II that allows players who have completed the main campaign to restart with the same character and face greater challenges. This replaces the retirement system in the original Torchlight.

To start New Game Plus, speak to an NPC named Felicia who appears in Minehead after you have finished the main quest.

When starting a New Game Plus, the character will retain their full inventory, stash, skills, and statistics, but:

  • Monsters start at level 51 or higher, and gold and item drops also scale up accordingly.
  • All quests are reset and must be completed again.
  • Environments are re-rolled (randomized).
  • Multiplayer is restricted to players of the same tier of New Game Plus, so no lower/higher tiers players will join.
  • In NG+ the Mapworks remains accessible through waypoint portals in towns.

Tiers[edit | edit source]

There are several levels or tiers of New Game Plus:

  • New Game Plus (NG+) starts the world at level 51.
  • New Game Plus 2 (NG+2) starts the world at level 81.
  • New Game Plus 3 (NG+3) starts the world at level 100.
Note that player characters reach the level cap at level 100, and most itemization also maxes out at this level. Monster level will still continue to go up past 100, making the game more challenging.
  • New Game Plus 4 (NG+4) starts the world at level 120.
Upon completing NG+4, you may move into NG+5, but the game will not scale higher.
  • New Game Plus 5 (NG+5) starts the world at level 120.
You may continue to loop through the game, but all future playthroughs will be considered NG+5.

Skipping tiers[edit | edit source]

When you start New Game Plus, the game will select the tier of NG+ that best matches your character's level. This means you may potentially skip one to two tiers.

  • If your character level is 1-79, you will be placed into NG+
  • If your character level is 80-98, you will be placed into NG+2
  • If your character level is 99-100, you will be placed into NG+3
