Should You Buy the Deluxe or Standard Edition?
Let’s get the pricing out of the way first. The Standard Edition of the game costs $39.99 and will grant you access to the game. Remember, there is no monthly subscription fee, either, so you’ll pay this and then you’ll be set for the remainder of your time in the game.
New World’s Deluxe Edition costs $10 more at $49.99. As such, whether you should buy this edition over the base game depends entirely on how interested you are in the cosmetic skins, emote, and the Mastiff house pet.
From our experience in the game so far, there’s a lot to like about New World, and if you’re all set on sinking countless hours into exploring Aeternum, then the Deluxe Edition may well be worth it if its in-game items interest you.
However, if you’re unsure on whether you’re going to enjoy the game, or you just don’t think the items are worth the extra $10, then just stick with the Standard Edition. There are sure to be plenty more cool skins, emotes, and house pets heading to the in-game store at a later date that you can always spend that $10 on should you really get into the game.
That’s everything you need to know on whether you should buy the New World Deluxe or Standard Edition. For more tips and tricks, head on over to our wiki. Alternatively, you can find a handful of our helpful guides on the game below.
