Battlefield 2042 Editions: Ultimate, Gold, And Standard Comparison
When it comes to the Battlefield 2042 editions, there are three choices: Standard, Gold, and Ultimate. So choosing between the trio is definitely not easy, as each one offers more than the last. Battlefield 2042 is going to be a big deal, with the new game being a major competitor in the first-person shooter genre. It features natural disasters along with a brand new sandbox mode we've never seen before which includes classic maps. So if you're thinking about your Battlefield 2042 pre-order, which one are you going to get? This is everything you need to know about the Battlefield 2042 Ultimate edition, alongside the Gold and Standard versions.
The trouble with modern gaming, even as we move into an era that bolsters the digital copy of a game more and more, is that there’s so many editions of a game to rifle through before you’ll find the one that’s right for you.
Battlefield 2042 is no different, and has a lot of different goodies to offer you in your purchase. Here’s a full Battlefield 2042 editions comparison featuring all three available.

Plus, with every pre-order regardless of edition chosen, you’ll receive the in-game goodies of the Baku ACB-90 Epic Melee Takedown Knife, the Mr Chompy Weapon Charm, the Landfall Player Card Background and the Old Guard Tag.
Battlefield 2042: Standard Edition

This edition is a cross-gen bundle too, so if you’re buying on Xbox or PlayStation, you’ll have both the previous-gen and next-gen copies of the title, just in case you’re not totally upgraded yet.
If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get a bundle containing the ‘pass’ for the first year, coming with 4 new specialists, 4 battle passes, and 3 epic skin bundles.
