Below you can see the contents for both editions, and read a pair of official blurbs describing them:

Also includes a PLAY ARTS -KAI- Noctis action figure with Ultimate Edition-exclusive weapon.”

Funnily, Director Hajime Tabata pulled a small prank on us while unveiling the release date, initially showing “November 30th, 2016,” and then correcting to September 30th. You can see the moment at the bottom of the post, courtesy of YouTube user YongYea.
