5 'Destiny' content pieces.
Activision and Bungie have the next step in massive 'Destiny' franchise, the 'Destiny: Rise of Iron' expansion coming to PS4 and Xbox One on September 20th, but what those players that are getting into 'Destiny' for the first time? For them (and even for vanilla 'Destiny' players) there is 'Destiny - The Collection.' 'The Collection' will include all five current 'Destiny' pieces. That is, the original base game, 'Destiny,' Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below, Expansion II: House of Wolves, 'The Taken King,' and 'Rise of Iron.' There will also be a Level 40 Character Boost to get new players ready for the newest content.
'The Collection' will have everything a new 'Destiny' will need and at a price of $59.99. Existing players who are up to date with 'The Taken King' can pick up the digital 'Rise of Iron' for $29.99. While 'Destiny' began as a PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and 360 players, 'Rise of Iron' and 'The Collection' are only coming to the PS4 and Xbox One.
On PS4, 'Rise of Iron' players will have access to a PlayStation-exclusive quest line, Show strength, PvP map Icarus, and a ship, the Timeless Tereshkova. The ship is a reward for finishing the quest. As with previous PlayStation exclusive content, this will likely come to the Xbox One (say in late 2017).
'Destiny: Rise of Iron' takes the battle back to Russia and on to the new Plaguelands. The expansion will add story content, a new six-player Raid, a new hub (Felwinter Peak), a new Strike, a Light level increase, a new enemy faction, as well as hordes of new weapons, gear, multiplayer modes and maps.
Here is the new expansion's story:
The wall which stood for centuries along the southern border of Old Russia has collapsed, a battle-scorched reminder that our enemies still seek to destroy us all. Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into The Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late.
A new Gjallarhorn will be included in the game, but those that want to ensure that they have limited edition black and silver Iron Gjallarhorn, will want to preorder. 'Destiny: Rise of Iron' is priced at $29.99.
