Are you wondering is the Ultimate Edition of Diablo 4 really worth it? Read our article to find out.

The Diablo franchise by Blizzard is well known for its sought-after exclusives and collectibles. As the latest installment to the series, Diablo 4 continues the trend and offers a long list of perks to players who purchase the game’s Ultimate Edition in the ultimate action RPG experience.

However, the cost of this edition is pretty steep at $99.99. Even with the inclusion of in-game bonus items, the price is nothing to scoff at. This begs the question: Is it really worth it when you can experience the gripping story, memorable characters, new events, and expansive endgame with the base version of Diablo 4? Let’s go over what you’ll get when you purchase the Ultimate Edition of Diablo IV and elaborate on the value of its exclusive perks.

Diablo IV – Ultimate Edition [Pre-Purchase] – Xbox [Digital Code]
  • Preload now, play on 06/06 at 00:00
  • Preorder and receive Light Bearer Mount, Caparison of Faith Mount Armor in Diablo IV
  • Cross-Gen Bundle of Diablo IV – Includes the Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions of the game.

Is the Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition Really Worth it?

For nearly $100, long-time players who purchase the Ultimate Edition of Diablo 4 will definitely get their money’s worth in a copy of the game, exclusive items, and in-game rewards. However, some perks may not be for everyone. Because of this, the Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition is only worth it if you’re a die-hard fan of the world of Sanctuary.

Furthermore, if you don’t already own other Diablo titles and World of Warcraft, the Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition just isn’t worth the extra cost of its perks outside the base game on all available platforms. I may be tempted by the mount access, but a collector’s edition art book would have sealed the deal. Beautiful art and story are trademarks of Blizzard Entertainment, and a hardcover art book would’ve been a great bonus.

What Does Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition Include?

According to Battle.net, you’ll receive the following perks when you purchase Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition:

  • The Full Game
  • An Accelerated Seasonal Battle Pass Unlock in Diablo 4 (including a Premium Seasonal Battle Pass Unlock plus 20 tier skips and a cosmetic)
  • Wings of the Creator Emote in Diablo 4
  • Temptation Mount in Diablo 4
  • Hellborn Carapace Mount Armor in Diablo 4
  • Inarius Wings & Inarius Murloc Pet in Diablo 3
  • Amalgam of Rage Mount in World of Warcraft
  • Umber Winged Darkness Cosmetics Set in Diablo Immortal

The Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition certainly has a lot to offer, with exclusive perks that extend beyond the game as well as early access to the upcoming title’s release this June.

While many players won’t have any use for a few of these exclusive items if they have not purchased other games like Diablo 3, Diablo Immortal, and World of Warcraft, those who own these titles and intend to put long hours into Diablo 4 will be pleased.

In any case, the Diablo 4 Ultimate Edition does come with a solid amount of in-game collectibles that will surely appeal to die-hard fans of the franchise and similar games. This legendary loot may help you battle world bosses and defeat the endless evil that plagues Sanctuary.

What Is the Difference Between Editions?

The main difference between the Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate editions is firstly the price. The Ultimate Edition is slightly more expensive at $99.99, whereas the Deluxe Edition is $89.99, and the Standard is $69.99. Next, the Battle Pass is different between the Ultimate and Deluxe editions in that the Ultimate also comes with the accelerated Battle Pass, a Tier Skip on top of the Pass, whereas the Deluxe version only comes with the Premium Battle Pass, without any bonuses. Lastly, the Ultimate edition is the only one that includes the Wings of the Creator Emote.

If you opt not to get either the Digital Deluxe edition or the Ultimate edition, you can play the full game along with the Standard edition of Diablo 4. Regardless of which you select, you will experience a next-gen action RPG experience on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.
