Destiny Has Some Sweet Timed Exclusive PlayStation Goodies

Destiny_PlayStationExclusiveGear.jpg

Bungie isn’t joking when it says that the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 will offer the “Ultimate Destiny Experience.” At launch, the PlayStation consoles will contain exclusive bonus content in the form of a competitive multiplayer map, a co-op Strike mission, one rare gear set for each of the three Guardian classes, two weapons, and three player ships. Of course, in the fine print it is noted that this content is only exclusive to PlayStation “until at least Fall 2015.” So if you plan to play on an Xbox console and have the patience to wait a year, you’ll get this stuff eventually.

Below you will find a sizzle trailer highlighting all of these PlayStation goodies, followed by an itemized listing of the individual perks.



Exodus Blue Competitive Multiplayer Map

Out among the ruins of the Cosmodrome lies the Colony Ship Exodus Blue. This long-dead vessel once brought hope and humanity to worlds beyond Earth. Now it’s a battlefield for our greatest champions. Here, Guardians challenge one another, forging a new hope and future in the fires of the Crucible.

– Exodus Blue is a mid-sized Crucible arena that pair perfectly with Control and Skirmish game modes.
– Broken pipes at the edge of the dry-dock provide an ideal route and vantage point for players who prefer ranged combat cover.
– Broken arms from a massive shipbuilding crane have smashed down onto train transports, providing those looking for close quarters combat a unique entrance to the interior.

– Handcrafted as a showpiece, the Monte Carlo’s sleek look masks the cruel reality of its function – the efficient, elegant delivery of war against any who would tarnish its legacy.
– Elegant line work emblazoned into the weapon’s body and a clean, well-defined pattern make the Monte Carlo stand out in a crowd.
– The Monte Carlo’s long, smooth lines extend into a bayonet that is both beautiful and imposing in its implications.

– The Hawkmoon is a true gunslinger’s weapon – a smooth sidearm that makes every bullet count… Some more than others.
– Intricate “hawk feather” etchings carved into the weapon’s silvered barrel hint at personality and a handcrafted touch.
– The horned sight rack, accessories and “talon” crafted into its handle give the Hawkmoon a unique silhouette.
