Mission packs and more listed for sale, here's how to find what you want

With the formal announcement of Watch Dogs 2 just yesterday, Ubisoft has already unveiled multiple pre-order options. But, depending on where you buy them and what web page you're looking at it can be a little confusing. So, let's break them all down.

The Gold Edition Collector's Edition tops the list at $149.99, and includes the base game along with two "deluxe packs" of additional vanity items like skins for weapons, vehicles, drones and more. The Deluxe Collector's Edition retails for $119.99 and, as far as the product description goes, seems to contain the same stuff minus the season pass. Below that is the plain old Collector's Edition for $109.99, sans vanity items and season pass of course.

All three of these Collector's options include a physical "Wrench Junior" robot, described as "an endearing companion, controlled by an app available on smartphones or tablets."

The Gold Edition goes for $99.99 and includes aforementioned vanity items and season pass, while the Deluxe Edition ($69.99) drops the season pass. The Standard Edition... well, that's just the game. The game is $59.99.

Every pre-order lists the inclusion of a bonus mission, titled "The Zodiac Killer." From the description:

A serial killer is staging the bodies of his victims all over Oakland just like the infamous Zodiac Killer of the 1960s, and he’s taunting the police and news outlets with coded messages. Will you succeed in decrypting the messages and hunting down the copycat? Complete your mission and get an additional outfit!

Watch Dogs 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One Nov. 15.
