How to Start New Game Plus in Horizon Forbidden West

To start new game plus, first make sure you’ve beaten Horizon Forbidden West’s main story at least once. That means you’ll have rolled the credits and beaten the final boss.

From there, load up your save and head to the Base. In the middle of this room, you’ll find a beacon-like tower. Interact with this and press Triangle when standing in front of it to start New Game Plus, as shown in the screenshot below.
