The core game is the same all around, but the bonuses differ between the iterations. If you’ve not yet pre-ordered your copy, then I offer the following details for your consideration:

    I went with the GoG preorder. It was $45 bucks and it came with decent stuff. Really, who buys physical copies anymore?
