Similar or somewhat the same as the old method on the 360 version where you just beat Rider White at the end of the game with your Rage ability to give you a massive stack of xp.
After beating it, select new game and choose the character you finished the game with, then select Chapter 18.
Then it will ask you to choose a save. Use your main character save (should be the save closest to the top)
Now this will load you up on the final fight with Rider White.
Simply fight off the army guys and the zombies until your Rage meter is full, after that head to the heli-pad to fight Rider and kill him with your Rage ability.
This will give you tons of xp and is a very effective way to Rank up fast!

Here is a video I made for example. After killing him I earned 60,000xp Although I was level 51 so depending on what level you are, xp my be different, for example if your level 40 Youll probably earn about 30-40k for killing him.

The making a new game method works also with money
I found that if you are running low on cash, load up chapter 14 where it will load you up in the Laboratory.
There will be missions finished that you can collect money from.
Simply collect the money, quit the game and repeat. This way you can constantly earn money for things like medkits, ammo, repairs etc.

I have also made a clip for this for example.

Hope the solution helped, happy hunting toast]
