Hold onto your wallets Destiny and/or PlayStation fans, Sony and Bungie today have revealed a slick new limited edition Destiny: The Taken King PS4 Console Bundle which is set to launch this September.
The attractive white 500GB console, with exclusive Destiny: The Taken King artwork, will include a retail copy of Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition along with an upgrade to the Digital Collector's Edition. A price wasn't provided along with the announcement, but we're guessing it will launch at $449.99 or so, like the recent Batman: Arkham Knight LE bundle. If so, that's not a bad deal.
Stop by the PS Blog here for all the details and check out some product shots below.
Destiny: The Taken King PS4 Console Bundle:
Hark, Guardians! Meet the newest member of the PS4 family, the Limited Edition Destiny: The Taken King PS4 Bundle available on September 15.
The package will include a white Destiny-inspired 500GB Limited Edition PS4 system and a physical copy of Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition, which includes Destiny, Expansions I and II, and The Taken King. You’ll also get an upgrade to the Digital Collector’s Edition, which includes the following content: three exotic Guardian class items with XP bonuses, three classic-specific emotes, three armor shaders, as well as the early access weapons pack.
As you can see, the design showcases a map of the cosmos in silver with the Guardian’s crest set in gold right in the center – a beacon of hope in a besieged solar system.
If you watched PlayStation’s E3 Press Conference, you know that Destiny: The Taken King adds a gigantic amount of new content. Highlights include a new Campaign adventure complete with a new story, new Guardian sub-classes with new Supers, new activities, new rewards, new weapons, new PvP maps, and much, much more. If you haven’t jumped into Destiny yet, this is a great opportunity to catch up since it gives you all content from launch. Also, existing players on PS3 can update to this version on PS4 without losing any progress.
And of course, PS4 owners score access to fresh PlayStation-exclusive content*: a co-op Strike (Echo Chamber), a PvP multiplayer map (Sector 618), three legendary gear sets (Hesperos, Azoth Bend, and Neuroghast), plus an exotic scout rifle (the Jade Rabbit).
We wanted to imbue the new Limited Edition Destiny: The Taken King PlayStation 4 Bundle with the same aesthetic beauty Bungie has lavished upon its new world. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
