Read our full Destiny review.
Devoted fans may recall that during last week’s PlayStation E3 Presentation, Sony VP Adam Boyes mentioned that Bungie’s upcoming shooter Destiny will come with a raft of exclusive content for gamers on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Now that the trade show hubbub has died down a bit, the PlayStation Blog has finally shared some particulars of what that content will actually look like.
For the gear-heads among you (which–let’s be real–is all of you), Sony-loyal guardians will be treated to an exclusive set of armor for each class: the Manifold Seeker for Warlocks, Vanir for Titans, and Argus for Hunters. Two special weapons will also be available: the Monte Carlo, an assault rifle designed for nasty, close-range combat, and the intricately-etched Hawkmoon hand cannon for extra style points. Lastly three new ships will be available for piloting: the Aurora Wake, Crypt Hammer, and Outrageous Fortune, geared towards Warlocks, Titans, and Hunters, respectively.
You will be able to test the new swag out in an exclusive co-op Strike in the dilapidated Dust Palace skyscraper, among the dunes of Mars, wherein you and two companions track a Cabal extraction team and square off against sinister Psion Flayers. The Exodus Blue Competitive Multiplayer Map is a mid-sized Crucible arena perfect for Control and Skirmish matches set on the long-defunct ship Exodus Blue.
Destiny is set for release on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on September 9, 2014.
