The standard version doesn’t include any further bonuses outside the core game, and it’s priced at $70. The deluxe edition costs $94.99 and consists of the following content in addition to the base game.

  • Forspoken Mini Artbook (digital download)
  • Forspoken Mini Soundtrack (digital download)
  • Prequel Story DLC “Forspoken: In Tanta We Trust”
  • Prequel Story DLC Early Access

Not much information has been released about the prequel DLC and what it entails as of this writing.

Which Forspoken edition to buy: Standard or Deluxe?

For players looking to dive deep into Forspoken, we suggest the game’s standard edition. Suppose you enjoy the content and want to experience more stories or enjoy the deluxe edition content. In that case, Square Enix offers a Deluxe upgrade DLC that will grant you all of the content the Deluxe edition contains.

The Deluxe DLC upgrade costs $25.00, so the total price of the standard edition and the DLC comes out to the same price as buying the Deluxe edition outright.
