New Game Plus has just come to The Witcher 3, allowing players to start their adventures as Geralt of Rivia all over again while maintaining their current character level. Considering the game itself offers 200 hours of game time for a single play through (assuming you've got the time), it's a fairly daunting undertaking.

Nonetheless, having put the main story to bed, I decided to jump in to NG+ and see how different the gameplay experience is with the new mode enabled. Turns out it's quite a bit trickier. Have a look at the video below, in which I discuss the XP system and gear leveling before failing spectacularly to bring down the Griffin of White Orchard.

If you haven't finished The Witcher 3 yet, fear not - this video is guaranteed spoiler free.
