So, what does that extra $20 get you when it comes to Granblue Fantasy: Relink Special Edition? Here’s everything that’s included:

  • False Sword of the Apocalypse
  • Color Pack 2
  • Color Pack 3
  • Starter Item Pack
  • GBF Special Item Set: Relink Pack

Essentially, buying the Special Edition gets you a few extra items to start off the game, as well as some color packs for added character customization. Each color pack includes one alternative outfit and hairstyle combo for each of the main characters.

If you want to have everything possible at your disposal when playing the game, the Special Edition may be worth the extra cost to get ahold of those additional items. They’ll start you off with better weapons and more financial resources than the standard edition.

That said, some of these items can be purchased as one-off digital add-ons, so if you’re eyeing a particular Color Pack but not love the price tag, adding individual items might be a better fit.

Considering the Digital Deluxe edition of Granblue Fantasy: Relink? This version will get you everything included in the Special Edition, plus…

  • Color Pack 1
  • Digital Artbook and Soundtrack

Essentially, the extra cost pays for the artbook and soundtrack. If you’re a hardcore fan or artbook collector, this tier may well feel worth the additional price.

In addition to the special or deluxe editions, players can opt to purchase many of the extras individually. Here’s a breakdown of what’s available as a DLC add-on purchase and the price:

  • Color Pack 1: $8 USD
  • Color Pack 2: $8 USD
  • Color Pack 3: $8 USD
  • Color Packs 1-3 Set: $20 USD
  • Upgrade Pack, PS5 (Includes all items from Digital Deluxe Edition, except the Special Item Set): $30
  • Upgrade Pack, Steam (Includes all items from the Special Edition, except the Special Item Set): $20

While the upgrade packs are mostly a fit if you change your mind and want the special editions after all, the color packs are a great option if you really just want some more character customization options but don’t care for the other items in the Special Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition.
