Guardians might want to take a sick day.
Bungie's latest expansion for their hit first-person shooter 'Destiny' arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One tomorrow. Called 'Destiny: Rise of Iron,' the $29.99 expansion will occur on a new part of Earth called the Plaguelands (which comes with a new hub called Felwinter Peak). In addition to brand new story content, it'll include a six-player Raid called the "Wrath of the Machine," and an assortment of new weapons, multiplayer modes (including private matches) and maps.
That's a lot of new content, and it really shows how far the base game has been completely reinvented since 'Destiny' originally released two years ago. Since then, Bungie and Activision have shipped Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below, Expansion II: House of Wolves, 'The Taken King,' and 'Rise of Iron.' New (and existing) players can actually get all of that content by purchasing 'Destiny - The Collection,' a new physical release that includes all of the content released to this point for $59.99. That's quite the deal.
Like previous 'Destiny' releases, PlayStation 4 owners will be able to enjoy a bunch of exclusive bonuses. This includes an exclusive quest line called 'Show of Strength' that will give players access to a pretty rad looking ship. PlayStation owners will also get access to a new multiplayer map called Icarus. Previous "PlayStation-exclusive" content has come to Xbox One in the past, so this could very well be a timed-exclusive for now. So, Guardians on Xbox One shouldn't totally give up on piloting the Timeless Tereshkova.
'Destiny: Rise of Iron' releases tomorrow, September 20th, on PlayStation and Xbox One. It'll cost existing players $29.99, while those looking to upgrade can pick up 'Destiny - The Collection' for $59.99.
