Might be something like the Overtime Mode from "DEAD RISING".
Looks like we'll have to wait & see come October 18th...

These are always the worst achievements.

It is not an achievement to complete a game twice - actually, it's an achievement in patience.

Not many games are good enough for two playthroughs, but they put this on there anyways. Most of the time I don't complain however, as I love online achievements and i know most hate those. I just wish they'd start making them more fun. They've become pretty standard and stale.

Most games that make you do New game + add some sort of bonus in your playthrough, such as being overpowered, or keeping all your equipment. I don't really see how that's extremely repetitive. I can understand with having to beat games on different difficulties, that's boring as hell.

I'd like it to be similar to Medal of Honor's tier 1 mode, where its the same storyline, but the campaign is made much harder, atleast it would make batman more of a challenge

or new game + could be when you completed arkham city, OR when you completed arkham asylum and get all of your gadgets and upgrades

Comment #13 by GhostCamarox75
Saturday, September 03, 2011 @ 11:47:37 AM

This basically a new game where you start out with all your gadgets and upgrades
however the enemies are way harder and the game is more challenging

the amount of time i will invest in this game is going to be ridiculous. However, it will be done. Looking forward to it.

Glad to see this, but hopefully the difficulty raises with the Plus.

I'll be replying this more than two times anyway. Besides it should be easier to rush through on the second time because you shouldn't be wasting time on side missions and things.

Copying bastion? after you beat that you had to beat in New Game Plus mode. It was just a second playthrough with all your xp and gadgets carrying over with tougher enemeies

Fascinating! I've always been a fan of New Game+ concepts, like in Mass Effect. However, I am curious to see how they plan to utilize it exactly. Only 10 days to go...

Saturday, October 15, 2011 @ 12:38:49 PM

im wondering if they take out difficulty levels in the game and just make it one set difficulty like in assassin's creed, then it just gets a lot harder in new game plus

Comment #24 by ll Mr Bubbles ll
Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 07:23:11 PM

There are 3 difficulties in the game ,
- Easy
- Normal
- Hard
You have to complete the game on normal or above you unlock new game+ . As for new game plus it is the exact same as your first playthrough but all your gadgets , xp and i think riddles cross over. So its just like playing the 1st playthrough again except there is no counter icon and enemies are more advanced from the start i.e Alot more enemies with guns etc also their behaviour is more advanced.

Yeah, Mr. Freeze requires you to really use all of your options to weaken him. But I think this was a great idea and am having fun trying to beat the game this way lol

2. Glide takedown (off one of the top level computers when he is on lower level)
3. Weapon deactivator you got to take down penguin
4. Ledge takedown
5. Grate takedown
6. Blow solid wall at him with bat gel
7. Electrify water with button
8. Takedown through window
9. Skylight takedown

Hope this helps

Main storyline only no side missions required popped for me after the final boss fight.
very tough as well especially Joker & Mr Freeze boss fights!!!

Damn it, took me three tries to take down freeze. That son of a bitch was hard!

Comment #44 by envint251
Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 05:15:42 AM

I found this incredibly difficult - a reminder of how crap I am with any game that requires using combos! Mr Freeze almost made me give up - although there was a great feeling of satisfaction (and relief) when I finally beat him after about ten tries. And a couple of the boss fights actually made me throw my controller in frustration - I've never, ever done that with a game before! On a side note, those controllers are very sturdy - after hitting a stone floor twice I thought that would be the end of it.

Comment #47 by coldfusionangel
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 09:20:59 PM

Wounds 2011 makes a good point : 

If you do some of the Extreme Riddler's Revenge Challenges beforehand, New Game + isn't all that much more difficult than playing on Normal. Just requires a bit more cunning. Enemy AI ramps up a few notches, more armed and armored enemy types tend to show up in the mix much earlier in the story, and enemies move a bit quicker during combat. 

The Joker fight was actually easier the second time around as compared to the numerous attempts on my part to beat him on normal. Now, Mr. Freeze, on the other hand... nearly 2 hours fighting that frost-bitten bastard before I put him down. And yes, VERY satisfying as I finally broke through his defenses and attempted to rearrange the bone structure of his face. Getting so close to the end, I can just about taste

Comment #48 by coldfusionangel
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 09:23:36 PM

the Twice Nightly chievo!! Add another 75G to my g-score?? Yummy!

Btw - playing New Game + with the Batman Beyond skin. May not do anything special or different, but looks DAMN cool!!

Comment #49 by SchweinsHaxen
Monday, November 14, 2011 @ 11:51:55 AM

I just got this achievement. It takes some getting used to not having the
little counter indicator but I don't think its that big of a deal. The only
really hard part was Mr. Freeze, took me like 2 hours to beat him :/

Comment #50 by The Malta Dog
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 03:31:58 PM

Is everyone playing Newgame + without the Catwoman add-on? i just can't get past Poision Ivy as Catwoman has hardly any health.

Comment #51 by kinomi
Saturday, November 26, 2011 @ 04:07:28 AM

Generally not had much trouble with this. the disarm and destroy combo quickly negates the 'more challenging enemy configurations' The biggest hiccup I've had is missing the counter indicator , and, as seems a common theme , the Mr Freeze+ fight. Thanks to Hazard82, comment #39 for the list - was struggling to think of the different takedowns - found out the hard way that a sliding attack seemed to count the same as a silent takedown..

Comment #52 by DubIaught
Sunday, November 27, 2011 @ 07:24:02 PM

Not as hard as people make it out to be.

Comment #53 by RathSparda
Monday, November 28, 2011 @ 09:43:44 AM

this one seems harder because the thugs instantly go after the guns. it gets really annoying to try and fight them. but at least its more fun.

Comment #58 by Popcorn On Fire5

Same #50, I never bothered to upgrade her in normal difficulty
because I spent most of my time as Batman, so I'm doing it with no
upgrades and I swear to god, or batman, same thing, even though she's
supposed to be fast, flexible and agile, she takes forever and is pathetic
in combat. Multiple times I've pressed the counter button but she doesn't
and because she doesn't I've died like 5 times. And has anybody tried
ground takedown as catwoman? Takes like two minutes! AARTJHDHJHGVDKYDG!!!!!!

Comment #59 by Popcorn On Fire5
Monday, December 19, 2011 @ 07:27:18 PM

Guys, I got 2 things to say. One being in New Game Plus the part where you get
the ghost train achievement is kicking my ass. 2- For all you people having
trouble with the 2nd catwoman epidose where you fight all her goons going
up level by level, I found an exploit, and trust me, it's a big help.
If you get stuck, simply jump to the level below, (don't worry, the gas won't
drain your health) jump to the ceiling and takedown every thug near the edge.
Worked like a charm, except for the bottom level obviously. Anybody got any
tips for the ghost train part? plz?

Comment #60 by Shredwot
Friday, December 30, 2011 @ 10:26:28 AM

#59 pretty much just punch-evade-punch keep that going then spam batswarm and instant takedown when you can. Also try and take out the titan as quick as possible

Comment #61 by cjdavies
Saturday, December 31, 2011 @ 05:14:01 AM

If I can get as far as Mr Freeze I will be happy, but if not then I will give up, as I never seem to use gadgets when in a fight and never seem to combo, it's always punch and counter when flashes.

Comment #62 by D347H0FL0V3
Saturday, January 07, 2012 @ 12:15:57 PM

So if I did absolutely everything there is to be done in the story on regular normal, do I have to do it again in New Game + or can I just play through the main story?

Comment #63 by Dark1Coming
Thursday, January 26, 2012 @ 12:39:00 PM

Looking forward to playing through the game again. Working on getting all the "other" achievments before going back through and playing again.

Comment #64 by kylelvg1
Wednesday, February 01, 2012 @ 12:36:36 PM

#62 This is just for beating the story on New Game + . You do not need go out and find all the trophies, etc. again

Comment #65 by Popcorn On Fire5
Tuesday, April 10, 2012 @ 08:38:40 PM

For anybody stuck at the part where you get ghost train, what I did (after a few months of giving up) I used the freeze cluster grenade. I evaded into
a corner, threw the freeze cluster grenade where most baddies were, punched
the one or two still moving, evaded to get me enough time to throw and did
it again. If you can't take three guys at once this won't work for you.
I left the titan and abromavic for last. Not sure if I spelt abromavic right.

Comment #68 by Jackkrauser1140
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 @ 07:24:10 PM

Not much trouble with The actual achievement...Freeze is pretty easy compared to my trouble with The Demon's Head (IE R'as al Ghul for those who don't read Batman). Then I had trouble With the big mob fights...Not too tough. What I hated was catwoman. It took me two days to beat the poison ivy A Satisfying 75Gs...

New game + is not easy. Especially the freeze fight. Took me ages. Now I'm trying (over and over) to beat Joker and his goons in the steel mill. Jesus they just dont stop attacking.

Comment #74 by Chillfactor
Tuesday, June 04, 2013 @ 03:16:01 PM

What's awesome is that your riddler challenges carry over from your previous game so you can pick up any that you missed with access to all gadgets from the get-go

Comment #75 by Tinsigmund666
Friday, March 27, 2015 @ 01:39:24 PM

Most goons now have weapons (guns)
They are more aware of suspicious sounds and noise and more likely to go and explore those sounds
More goons wear armour
Goons have more health
You die very quick if you are not carefull.

Pro is that you have all of your gadgets and upgrades from a previous playthrough.
