Bungie has revealed via press release a very special edition of their hit game Destiny. Titled, Destiny – The Collection, it will have every piece of content for Destiny so far, and more. This includes the main game, DLC, and pre-order bonuses. Check out the details below.
“Containing every release from the award-winning action shooter franchise to date, including the new large expansion, Destiny: Rise of Iron, Destiny – The Collection is the perfect opportunity for new Guardians to join the fight for humanity’s survival. For legacy gen players, Destiny – The Collection marks the opportunity to transition to playing Destiny on a current gen system through the upgrade program which begins today and runs until January 31, 2017. Destiny – The Collection will launch alongside Rise of Iron on September 20, 2016 and will be available for the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One (PlayStation®Plus, Xbox Live Gold, required for some features). Gamers who pre-purchase Destiny – The Collection digitally will be able to experience Destiny, The Dark Below, House of Wolves and The Taken King immediately, while awaiting the release of Rise of Iron.
“Destiny – The Collection is the perfect starting point for gamers who have yet to experience Destiny,” said Byron Beede, Sr. Vice President of Destiny at Activision. “Destiny – The Collection contains some of the most engaging content Bungie has ever created and the soon-to-be released Rise of Iron. It also includes a character boost that will allow new players to instantly join in with friends who are already enjoying Destiny.”
Players who pre-order Destiny – The Collection or Rise of Iron will receive the black and silver Iron Gjallarhorn*, a fan favorite weapon making its return to power. Those that pre-order digitally or at select retailers will also receive the Iron Gjallarwing Sparrow*. “
Well that sounds pretty cool. I don't really like when they try to market it as something that would be good for first time players, because it seems like the opposite to me. I would think you would want to know the game in and out before buying a collection set with all the "pre-order bonuses". Just my opinion, though.
