  • Price: $69.99
  • Pre-order Bonus: Thrown to the Dogs Bonus Quest
  • Additional Content: None

The Standard Edition is the base game with no additional content. Pre-ordering this version will get you the bonus “Thrown to the Dogs” quest. This will be locked for players who purchase the game later. In my opinion, players who want the game and nothing else should get this version and be done with it.
