Two interesting pieces of information pertaining to Bungie’s sci-fi shooter Destiny have popped-up on Sony’s PlayStation Blog today. Alongside the announcement of Destiny: The Collection, the post goes into detail about the exclusive content that PS4 players will get to enjoy when this year’s Rise of Iron expansion drops.
Dealing with the former first: Destiny: The Collection is a compilation that includes the base game as well as all previous DLC and add-on content that’s been released thus far – including this year’s offering – will cost $40, and is the best way to get back into the game if you’ve been away for a while, according to Bungie.
Whenever we launch new content, it’s a great time to welcome players back the game – and maybe even recruit some reinforcements for one of the finest communities in gaming. If you’ve missed out on any of the adventures that we’ve delivered to date, we’re excited to announce Destiny – The Collection. Think of it as a loot crate that will help you bounce back into the action. This bundle contains everything we’ve ever released into the world Destiny, including Rise of Iron. It even has a consumable that will boost your character to combat-ready status.
As for the PS4-exclusive content, a unique quest line, ship and PvP map are all yours to enjoy when Rise of Iron launches on September 20. See below for the full details:
Quest line: Show of Strength
“While you serve the Vanguard in the Plaguelands, I wonder if you’d be so kind as to help me understand the more brutal aspects of the Devil Splicers’ brand of worship.” – Tyra Karn
Reward for Quest: Ship – Timeless Tereshkova
You are but the most recent entry in Cosmodrome’s long and legendary history.
PvP map: Icarus
Location: Languid Sea, Mercury
This Golden Age solar farm on Mercury has remained un-touched by the Vex for reasons unknown. The Vanguard has denied petitions from various weapon foundries to research it until the Warlock orders have finished their surveys first. An exemption has been granted to Lord Shaxx and his Crucible: the Guardians are free to utilize Icarus as a live-fire training zone.
– Icarus is a mid-sized PVP map compatible with any 6v6 game mode.
– The outer perimeter features a circular flow mixed with long sightlines and close-combat environments.
– The main chamber’s closing doors provide a fast, but dangerous, path through the center of the map.
If you’re thinking about getting your feet wet in Destiny‘s universe again to prepare for Rise of Iron, you couldn’t have picked a better time. As of tomorrow, the monthly Iron Banner PvP event is due to go live, bringing with it a whole range of fancy-looking rewards you can adorn your Guardian with.
