The Standard Edition includes the base game, five online XP Boosts for Career Mode, Muhammad Ali as a playable fighter, and two alter egos in addition to the 30th Anniversary Vanity Bundle. The Deluxe Edition features all this, plus the Bruce Lee Bundle, Origins Bundle, two additional alter egos, three days early access and Mike Tyson and Fedor Emelianenko as playable characters.
There will also be a three-day early access trial available on EA Play. Stay tuned for more details en route to release.
