      went with Ult. ed. myself. Seeing as to how much content they put in Div1, and this one is launching from a genuinely better place in development. Oh yes, even Ubi will have to work to fuck this up.

      This doesn't really explain what you get in the different versions. What advantage or benefit are the additional perks for gold/ult? What length is the dlc that I'd included and will this content be available for lower tier versions via in-game unlock?
