Destiny

Bungie has detailed Destiny‘s PlayStation-exclusive content. At launch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 owners will have access to an exclusive Strike and multiplayer map, and an assortment of gear, weapons, and ships.

Also, if you’ve been playing this week’s PlayStation-exclusive Destiny First Look Alpha, which was supposed to end last night, it’s still up and running, but the servers will be up and down all day. Bungie says the extra time is for “more rigorous Science.”

Find the full list of PlayStation-exclusive content below, via the PlayStation Blog.

Strike and Map

  • The Dust Palace Strike: An exclusive three-player cooperative Strike that can be played with friends or match made. You’ll track a Cabal extraction team through the husks of an ancient human skyscraper, the Dust Palace, buried in the shifting dunes of Mars and face a new enemy, the Psion Flayers.
  • The Exodus Blue Competitive Multiplayer Map: A mid-sized Crucible arena that pairs perfectly with Control and Skirmish game modes. The Exodus Blue, a long-dead vessel, once brought hope and humanity to worlds beyond Earth. Here, Guardians challenge one another, forging a new hope and future in the fires of the Crucible.

Gear

  • For the Warlock class, Manifold Seeker armor that was built to help Warlocks survive the secret realms of the Vex.
  • For the Titan class, Vanir, a battle-tested armor set forged to protect Titans against the heavy firepower of the Cabal.
  • For the Hunter class, Argus, a durable all-environment wire-weave for those out to scout the frontier.

Weapons

  • The Monte Carlo: An exotic assault rifle, is a handcrafted showpiece with a sleek look that masks the cruel reality of its function — the efficient elegant delivery of war against any who would tarnish its legacy. Upgrades increase the weapon’s “hip fire” effectiveness and boost melee cool down, providing a firm grounding for close range domination.
  • The Hawkmoon: An exotic hand cannon, is a true gunslinger’s weapon — a smooth sidearm that makes every bullet count with intricate “hawk feather” etchings carved into the weapon’s silvered barrel. Damage boosts increase the combat effectiveness, making it a formidable weapon.

Ships

  • Aurora Wake: A hull lined with arcane instruments, crafted by a circle of Warlocks – gifting the ship with a preternatural sense for the strange.
  • Crypt Hammer: A deep-strike insertion variant, built to carry Guardians safely through contested space. Carries hardpoints once used to hold Suros TL-SEAD anti-radiation missiles.
  • Outrageous Fortune: A rugged, versatile explorer for those ready to gamble everything in search of ancient secrets and alien power.

          Noooooooo

          • nekolife

            Who cares? You still get to play it on the better hardware.

            • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

              Did you not sense my rhythm!

        • Zackasaur

          Wait, that link had no details about it being timed.

          Sony’s deals are usually permanent, so that would be highly unusual. Not impossible, of course.

          • Six

            Under the box that says “Exclusive Content Includes:” there is an asterisk and “Timed Exclusivity”.

            • AdamBoy64

              Hmm. Righteo, might not be much difference between picking up the PS4 and the X1 version.

              Guess we’ll have to wait and see how noticeable the visual differences are.

            • Zackasaur

              Oh, thanks!

              I was using my phone and couldn’t see that. xD

  • Gigus

    Killzone inspired armor would be nice.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      Eh

      • Gigus

        Killzone? Isa and helghast inspired gear/armor sets? No?

        • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

          Killzone 3 Helghast armor sure

    • bloodiOS

      A Helghast armor would look pretty hot.

      • Gigus

        Yup. You think starhawk inspired stuff here would work?

        • bloodiOS

          I don’t like Starhawk‘s armor so I can’t answer you without being biased about it.

          • Gigus

            XD no worries, I’m just trying to figure out nice little playstion exclusives that would work for destiny.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      I want Killzone and Halo inspired armor…and Vanquish

      • Gigus

        Most of the armor sets I’ve seen scream halo alittle bit.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          I disagree, they seem more extravagant and avoid the edges halo helmets were defined by

          • Gigus

            Opinion vs opinion. Well my comment is a bit contradicting. Lemme rephrase, they just have a hint of halo in them.

            • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

              Oh for sure, the shaders are similar to the ones used in Halo, if they changed those it would look far different.

      • Hidayat246

        Vanquish inspired armor is just a dream

  • tokyobassist

    I hear great things from just the Alpha so I’m excited to see how the final product turns out. Probably will be the first game I’ll actually have on my PS4.

      Infamous Second Son

      • Gigus

        Its not for everyone sadly XD

        • tokyobassist

          Yeah I’m not against open world games but inFamous kind of encompasses all the things I dislike about them.

          I would’ve gotten The Evil Within first but it got pushed back into October so Destiny will probably be my first major title I purchase. As of right now, all I have is Strider but I already finished that on PS3.

  • Invisbin

    Preordering this weekend bb

  • Solomon_Kano

    Some pretty cool stuff, I guess.

  • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

    Thats a lot of cool gear

  • nekolife

    I already preordered this on PS4, but after playing the alpha I’m not looking forward to it very much. It was pretty and kinda fun, but at 30fps I just don’t even want to look at it. Just holding out hope they manage to get the fps up for the final release.

    I was hoping for Helghast equipment ;-; Isn’t all this content just “timed” exclusive anyway?
