Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War comes in two editions - Standard and Ultimate. Both come with a couple of extras so let's take a look which one is the best value for money.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War pre-orders are finally live and Activision have offered two editions of the game at different price points. There's the Standard Edition, which costs $60 on current-gen consoles and PC and Ultimate Edition, which is priced at $90.

Both of these editions include a couple of extras so let's take a look which one is better value for money. 

STANDARD EDITION

This one including a lot of digital goodies as well as Battle Pass Bundle, which gives you Season One Battle Pass with 20 Tier Skips. Additionally, you also get Confrontation Weapons Pack, Land, Sea and Air Pack, 3 Operator and Vehicle skins and 3 Weapon Blueprints. The Cross Gen Bundle is also included in the Ultimate Edition.

  • Cross Gen Bundle - current-gen and next-gen version of the game 
  • Land, Sea and Air Pack
  • 3 Operator Skins
  • 3 Vehicle Skins
  • 3 Weapon Blueprints
  • Battle Pass Bundle - 1 Season Battle Pass + 20 Tier Skips

  • Pre-order bonus: open beta early access

In the end, if you don't really care about fancy in-game skins and battle pass grinding, then Standard Edition is your only option here. For those who love digital goodies, we would say that Ultimate Edition is definitely worth it, especially since it includes a cross-gen bundle, which gives you two versions of the game.
