The epic fight against Lilith in Diablo IV is almost here, with its release set for June 6th.

Three Diablo IV Editions with Different Prices
To make an informed decision on which edition to purchase, it’s important to know what each edition offers. This is particularly important for Diablo IV, as it is a Blizzard game and some of the perks are not limited to D4 alone.
Beyond the cosmetic sets and mounts included in the more expensive editions, which may not appeal to hardcore Diablo players, there are several additional features that are worth considering. Here are all the available editions of Diablo IV:
- Standard Edition
- Digital Deluxe Edition
- Ultimate Edition
All pre-order editions of Diablo IV share a similar naming convention, even if they are not the most inventive titles in the industry. It is worth noting that these editions are identical across multiple platforms, including PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
What Comes with the Diablo 4 Standard Edition?
To start with the bad news about this release, Diablo IV Standard Edition is the least expensive version of the game, with a price tag of €70/$70. So, you will need to invest some money to begin your fight against Lilith.
Pre-ordering the Standard Edition will provide you with some additional perks, most notably the right to early access to all betas. However, the bonuses of this version extend beyond that. Here is a breakdown of what Diablo IV Standard Edition includes:
- Diablo IV game
- Light-Bearer Mount
- Caparison of Faith Mount Armour
- Diablo III Inarius Wings & Inarius Murloc Pet
- WoW Amalgam of Rage Mount
- Diablo Immortal Umber Winged Darkness Cosmetics Set
The most significant difference that may disappoint you a little is that even if you purchase this edition, you will not have access to four days of early access to Diablo IV. This privilege is exclusively available in the other two versions.
What Does Diablo IV Deluxe Edition Include?
You can pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition for €90/$90 (A pretty good deal). This version has some extras besides all the perks of the Standard Edition. Here is a breakdown of what is included in the Diablo IV Digital Deluxe Edition:
- All the benefits of the Standard Edition
- Temptation Mount
- Hellborn Carapace Mount Armour
- Premium Seasonal Battle Pass Unlock
- 4 Days Early Access to Diablo IV
Having access to the game four days earlier is a significant advantage, even if you’re not particularly interested in cosmetics. The Digital Deluxe Edition also includes the Battle Pass, which will be available for €10/$10 upon the game’s release.
Is Diablo 4 Ultimate Worth It?
It’s time to talk about the last and most expensive version of Diablo IV, the Ultimate Edition. If you’re willing to spend €100/$100, you will get all the perks of the other two versions as well as a few more extras that cosmetic enthusiasts will appreciate. Here’s what you’ll get with the Diablo IV Ultimate Edition:
- All the benefits of the Standard and Digital Deluxe Editions
- Accelerated Seasonal Battle Pass Unlock*
- Wings of the Creator Emote
Battle Pass boost available in Ultimate Edition may sound attractive for some players who want to progress faster in Diablo IV. With this edition, players can start 20 ranks ahead but keep in mind that this boost is only applicable for the first season.
Which Diablo 4 Edition Should You Get?
When it comes to choosing the right version of Diablo IV, it all depends on what you’re looking for. For those interested in in-game cosmetics, the Ultimate Edition is a no-brainer. However, if you’re looking for the best value, the mid-tier Digital Deluxe Edition is your best bet with early access included.
If you’re not in a rush to start playing Diablo IV, and you don’t care much about cosmetics, then the Standard Edition may be the best option. You can save the extra money for later use in the game.
