Diablo 4: Which Pre-order Edition should you buy?

As a gamer, one of the most common questions right now is which pre-order edition of Diablo 4 should I buy, or should I even buy it? I’ll break down the different editions in this article and provide my insights.

Edition 1: Standard Edition

The Standard Edition is a good choice if you’re primarily interested in Diablo 4 and not too concerned about cosmetics from other games. It provides the core game experience plus:

  1. Lightbearer Mount
  2. Caparison of Faith Mount Armor
  3. Inarius Wings and Inarius Murloc Pet (Diablo 3)
  4. Amalgam of Rage Mount (WoW)
  5. Umber Winged Darkness Cosmetics Set (Diablo Immortal)

Edition 2: Digital Deluxe Edition

The Digital Deluxe Edition offers a few extra bonuses, but let’s consider them individually.

  • Cosmetics: The Digital Deluxe Edition includes exclusive cosmetics for Diablo 4. However, it’s worth noting that founder-pack cosmetics often get overshadowed by newer and better-looking ones in games. So, if you’re not a hardcore collector, these cosmetics may hold little long-term value.
  • Four-Day Head Start: The Digital Deluxe Edition provides four days of early access when the game releases. While it can be enticing, it’s essential to evaluate if the excitement of being a day-one player justifies the additional cost. Remember that Diablo 4 is not an MMO with seasonal events, so the advantage of a four-day head start may be insignificant.
  • It provides all Standard Edition extras plus:
    1. Temptation Mount
    2. Hellborn Carapace Mount Armor
    3. Premium Seasonal Battle Pass​ Unlock

Edition 3: Ultimate Edition

The Ultimate Edition includes everything from the Digital Deluxe Edition and a few extra features. Let’s break it down.

  1. Emote and Tier Skips: For a $10 difference compared to the Digital Deluxe Edition, the Ultimate Edition offers an exclusive emote and 20-tier skips. If you’re a dedicated collector and enjoy having every possible cosmetic, this might be worth it. However, if the emote alone doesn’t justify the extra cost, the Digital Deluxe Edition is likely the better option.

You must align your priorities and preferences when considering which pre-order edition to buy. The Standard Edition is a solid choice if you’re solely interested in Diablo 4 and not concerned about cosmetics. If you’re an avid collector or want to dive into the game early, the Digital Deluxe Edition offers additional perks. While appealing to collectors, the Ultimate Edition may only be worth the extra cost for some.

Ultimately, the decision comes down to your personal preferences and budget. Enjoy your Diablo 4 journey!
