First Look: Destiny Collectors’ Editions

UPDATE: If you want to upgrade your PlayStation digital preorder of Destiny to the new Digital Guardian Edition, head to PlayStation Store and the price should reflect the difference. For those who haven’t preordered any digital version, you’ll see the full price of $89.99.

It’s Bungie Day. You want information. You want answers! You want the truth. Here goes…


If all you need from Destiny is a grand adventure that sends you to the stars in search of your own personal legend, we’ve got you more than covered. If you’ve played Bungie games in the past, you’re not prepared for the scope and the scale of this next-gen shooter.

However! If you crave more ways to express your inner Guardian, we’ve also got you covered. Destiny is all about collecting loot, after all. The treasures you claim on your missions will enhance your experience. They’ll make you a unique warrior in a brave new world worthy of heroes. They’ll deepen your understanding of the journey. This is as true for the Guardian that kicks alien ass it is for the player that drives them forward.

Be you a Guardian or a collector, there is a version of Destiny for you. Check ‘em out.

Destiny Limited Edition


Humanity has been searching the ruins of our Golden Age for Guardians – heroes capable of wielding Light as a weapon. You have just been found and given a vital mission: defend our home, drive back the forces of Darkness, find a way to awaken the Traveler, and Become Legend.


  •       Limited Edition SteelBook Case and Game Disc
  •       Guardian Folio, containing:
    • “Arms and Armament” Field Guide: Many believe the weapons and armor featured in this record are a myth. You will learn the truth.
    • Postcards from the Golden Age: Our worlds have been claimed by our enemies. Now, it’s time to take them back.
    • Antique Star Chart: Explore the wild frontiers of our solar system. Discover all that we have lost.
  • Collector’s Edition Digital Content: The City has provided you with a cache of items to start you on your journey, including:
    • A Unique Ghost Casing
    • An Exclusive Player Emblem
    • An Exclusive Player Ship Skin
  • Includes the Destiny Expansion Pass

Destiny Ghost Edition


This is your Ghost. It sought you out for centuries. It found you, dead and forgotten in the ruins of our civilization’s violent Collapse, and it brought you back to life to protect us all. Defend our home, drive back the forces of Darkness, find a way to awaken the Traveler, and Become Legend.


  •  Limited Edition SteelBook Case and Game Disc
  •  Ghost Replica: This is your motion-sensing Ghost, featuring lights and audio from the game. May it lead you through the Darkness.
  •  Letter of Introduction: These worlds were once ours. If you accept your destiny, you will be asked to do the impossible.
  •  Golden Age Relics, which include a Patch, Sticker and two Chrome slides of the Traveler (was previously missing from the description)
  •  Guardian Folio, containing:
    • “Arms and Armament” Field Guide: Many believe the weapons and armor featured in this record are a myth. You will learn the truth.
    • Postcards from the Golden Age: Our worlds have been claimed by our enemies. Now, it’s time to take them back.
    • Antique Star Chart: Explore the wild frontiers of our solar system. Discover all that we have lost.
  •  Collector’s Edition Digital Content: The City has also provided you with a cache of items to start you on your journey, including:
    • A Unique Ghost Casing
    • An Exclusive Player Emblem
    • An Exclusive Player Ship Skin
  •  Includes the Destiny Expansion Pass

Destiny Digital Guardian Edition


Destiny is a next-generation first-person shooter, with rich cinematic storytelling set in huge worlds to explore. Create and customize your Guardian. Defeat your enemies. Become Legend in intense cooperative, competitive, and innovative public gameplay modes.

Available for pre-order now on PlayStation Store


  •  Digital Download of Destiny
  •  Early access to Vanguard Armory and Player Emblem pre-order bonus
  •  Reservation for two upcoming Destiny Expansions, “The Dark Below” and “House of Wolves,” featuring:
    • Brand-new story missions
    • Cooperative and competitive multiplayer arenas
    • A wealth of all-new weapons, armor, and gear to earn
  •  Collector’s Edition Digital Content Pack: Exclusive in-game Ghost Casing, Player Ship, and Player Emblem

Destiny Expansion Pass

Expand your Destiny adventure with brand-new story missions, cooperative activities, competitive multiplayer arenas, and all wealth of all new weapons, armor, and gear to earn. The Destiny Expansion Pass includes Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below and Destiny Expansion II: House of Wolves. In The Dark Below, you’ll discover an ancient tomb has been unsealed. Beneath the surface of the Moon, a dark god has answered centuries of prayer, and a dark army has risen. Explore the true depths of the Hellmouth. Stop the dark Hive ritual and survive.

As an added bonus for PlayStation platforms, the Destiny Expansion pass will also include additional exclusive content for Expansion I and II that will remain exclusive until at least Fall of 2015.

Of course, every preorder of Destiny is deserving of special rewards – even if all you want is the game we’ve always wanted to make at Bungie. Your commitment to become a Guardian on Day One will gain you favor with the Vanguard Quartermaster in the Tower. This is not the only way to earn Vanguard items – but it’s a jump start in the arms race.

Want a closer look at all of this?

There better be an upgrade option or this is the first and last game I pre-order from PSN.

sabot37 said:

July 7th, 4:42 pm

For those looking to upgrade their digital preorders, myself included, it looks like this option is now live. In the What’s New section of my PS4 I was linked to a $29.99 upgrade to the Digital Guardian Edition.

VoltaOne said:

July 7th, 4:44 pm

I can confirm, I see an upgrade option for 29.99 on my ps4 timeline. However I don’t see it in the store.

OysterPrime said:

July 7th, 4:53 pm

I also see the upgrade. If you go to the Destiny product page in the PS Store and scroll down to Bundles, you should see the Digital Guardian Edition for $29.99.

prencher said:

July 7th, 4:55 pm

Yup, sure enough, upgraded.


This was *really* poorly handled from a messaging perspective, but at least it was only that.

Rock on, happy Bungie day!

Jet_Cobra said:

July 7th, 5:00 pm

will tthey be available in Canada?

MattAndersn said:

July 7th, 5:13 pm

I bought the upgrade option, but when I add it to my download queue it is still just the standard version. I’m not sure if this matters or not.

prencher said:

July 7th, 5:19 pm

@MattAndersn It does not, it’s just an authorization, similar to a season pass or other DLC. You’re good to go.

MmaFanQc said:

July 7th, 5:31 pm

would be nice to be able to upgrade my digital pre-order

Blue-Alloy said:

July 7th, 6:06 pm


It is available in Canada, just get on the PSN store and it’s already there.

Prince_Serlith said:

July 7th, 6:12 pm

I have a question whether the playstation 4 system destiny will have a collectors edition option or is it just the game?

OysterPrime said:

July 7th, 6:15 pm

@MmaFanQc: You can. Look at previous posts to see how to buy the upgrade.

MattAndersn said:

July 7th, 6:19 pm

If you buy the digital version are you supposed to get a beta code like with the retail versions or is it automatic?

packy17 said:

July 7th, 6:21 pm

Yep, upgrade shows in the store for me at $29.99. Happy we early buyers didn’t get screwed out of this. GJ Sony, Activision and Bungie!

packy17 said:

July 7th, 6:22 pm


You’ll get an email from Sony on the 17th with your beta code.

reinking said:

July 7th, 6:25 pm

What about those of us that have a Destiny Bundle PS4 preordered? Is there any way for us to upgrade to the Destiny Digital Guardian Edition?

maver1ck89 said:

July 7th, 6:50 pm

well at least this game is crossbuy crosssave rickross

darth_soul said:

July 7th, 7:06 pm

It took less than a day to get the upgrade available. Very nice, Sony. I’m impressed!

AirMaxPenny said:

July 7th, 7:18 pm

Dear Playstation,

What does the asterisk mean in this phrase under the Digital Guarding Edition?

Includes the Destiny Expansion Pass*

Please tell me that doesn’t mean “only kidding” or “for another $10 dollars later”

TooLoud said:

July 7th, 7:20 pm

What about the PS4+Destiny Bundle, can we upgrade that version to one of the ubove versions????

LoBridge said:

July 7th, 7:20 pm

I appreciate Sony responding so quickly to the changing world of digital purchases and pre-orders. They did a great job responding to the Last of Us price change and now with Destiny. I upgraded to the Deluxe without a hitch. Thanks!

TestEagleOZ said:

July 7th, 7:55 pm

Thanks for digital upgrade info! one thing I note though is in the digital description it says “Includes the Destiny Expansion Pass*” but no reference to what the asterisks means in this case, the other descriptions lack this asterisks. Any clarification on this? or is this an error?

Ryodin said:

Its not that hard to figure this out. If you are so worried about your beta key do the following:

1. Go to Amazon and Preorder the game. Have to pay nothing to do this
2. WIthin 30 minutes you will have a beta code in your email
3. Go to bungie and sign up for the beta
4. Cancel preorder

There, not so hard to figure out.

Now I know where any money into PS4 first party development is going…

Straight into early third party DLC.

ApathyCorps said:

July 7th, 9:14 pm

Is there any way for people that preordered the Destiny PS4 Bundle to get upgraded to any of the collector’s editions? I want the Glacier White PS4, but I also want the Limited Edition content.

MoonThorn72 said:

July 7th, 9:49 pm

Im a lil confused? Is the destiny limited edition and the destiny ghost edition two separate deals?

Edree said:

July 7th, 9:51 pm

I have a US and HK account on my ps4 if i buy this on my US account will i be able to play this game on my HK account?

Gamer_USA- said:

July 7th, 11:38 pm

I already pre-ordered the white PS4 bundle. If there is no upgrade option, then I am good with that

Tweakgod said:

July 7th, 11:46 pm

WTH!? *Access to Vanguard Armory can also be attained through gameplay.


July 8th, 12:30 am

Hey Sony , what about the EU store , do we get an upgrade option ???

beirgutt said:

July 8th, 2:47 am

WOOHOO!!!!! I am soooo there.

Ghost edition for me.

It’s shiny!

papastamm said:

July 8th, 3:17 am

Read the article during lunch and I cannot seem to find any differences between the two other than that the Guardian pack got expansions, is that it? Also, will the expansions (guess not?) be available at launch? Kinda sounds like it but then again it doesn’t.

Appreciate answers, thanks.

Can’t wait to play this, hopefully my third PS4 won’t be broken like the last two.

thegamerdug said:

July 8th, 4:39 am

I have the White PS4 Destiny Bundle preordered on Amazon. Will I be able to upgrade the game itself?

h4sh1sh33b said:

July 8th, 5:25 am

Trying to find the upgrade to the Digital Deluxe version on the Playstation Store and it says page not found. My account is based in Australia. Please tell me I will be able to do the upgrade!!!

Akiba021 said:

July 8th, 5:47 am

How about posting a link to the PS3 upgrade page instead of assuming everyone ordered the PS4 version. :/

kenbladex said:

July 8th, 5:52 am

I need some clarification. Game stop has the limited edition sparrow bike. Is that included in this as well? Also is vanguard exclusive to all editions.

darkalterkazuma said:

July 8th, 7:22 am

if we upgrade our destiny package do we still get the physical items. if so, how will they be delivered

YevinOrion said:

July 8th, 8:29 am

@kenbladex I think the bike is a GameStop exclusive. The Vanguard items are given to ALL pre-orders, even standard versions.

@darkalterkazuma Are you referring to the digital upgrade? If so, no, it’s an upgrade to the Digital Guardian Edition that includes the exclusive CE Ghost Casing, Player Ship, and Player Emblem along with access to Expansion 1 and 2 and the Vanguard items and pre-order Player Emblem. No physical items are included.

Brooklyn008 said:

July 8th, 9:57 am

Sorry if this was asked before : can we expect a retail release of that Ghost, in Canada?

Matrix_Lion said:

July 8th, 12:16 pm

I pre-ordered the PS4 Destiny bundle already.

NYPUNK88 said:

July 8th, 8:49 pm

I’m loving that exclusive content. :D Keep doing it, Sony. <3

JoeyOshkabunshka said:

July 8th, 9:10 pm

How many of the Ghost Editions is Bungie expecting to release?

Rashon19XX said:

July 10th, 10:06 am

I pre-ordered Destiny Digital Guardian Edition via playstation store and haven’t gotten my beta code yet.

paizw_gimnos said:

I have preordered destiny digital edition from psn store
WHY i cant upgrade to collecror’s digital edition? even from the links above on the comments of other users NOTHING will load for me….its so sad
i am a european resident

WILL_T3AM said:

July 10th, 9:13 pm

Can I upgrade my preorder to the Limited Edition? Don’t really want the digital or the ghost edition. I’ve also used the beta code from my preorder so I have no idea if I can change the order. Should’ve really let everybody know about these editions before we started preordering.

Dubioza said:

July 11th, 4:55 am

So I pre-ordered Destiny on PSN 3 weeks ago. Where and when can I find my Beta code? I thought it would be on the receipt for the pre-order, but it’s not. Will it be e-mailed to me before the 17th?

cdiesel2001 said:

July 11th, 12:49 pm
