My Experience With The Deluxe Edition

I can say with complete confidence that getting the digital deluxe edition was absolutely the right choice. The additional Darkdale items that I received with this edition really helped me out in my early game of GOW Ragnarok.

Additionally, getting the art book and soundtracks was just the cherry on top for me, and I’ve listened to the soundtrack countless times over, making the purchase worth it. If you are also interested in the GOW Rangarok’s ost and concept arts, paying an additional 10 bucks for the deluxe edition is worth it.

We hope that the guide was helpful in deciding the best edition that you should go for. I have also described the differences between the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game.
