Greetings from Germany, PlayStation Nation.
We’ve already embarked on a mission to gamescom to spread the word about the next great adventure in Destiny. Rise of Iron is rapidly approaching. The games begin on September 20th, and we can’t wait to see eager Guardians fight their way to the top of Felwinter Peak to set up a new base of operations.
Whenever we launch new content, it’s a great time to welcome players back the game – and maybe even recruit some reinforcements for one of the finest communities in gaming. If you’ve missed out on any of the adventures that we’ve delivered to date, we’re excited to announce Destiny – The Collection. Think of it as a loot crate that will help you bounce back into the action. This bundle contains everything we’ve ever released into the world Destiny, including Rise of Iron. It even has a consumable that will boost your character to combat-ready status.
If you’ve been playing Destiny on your PS3, this is also a great time to evolve your gear, along with your Guardian. Players who own Destiny: The Taken King can take advantage of a digital upgrade path on the PS4. Access the digital store on your new console, where you’ll find Destiny – The Collection on sale for $40. We hope you’ll continue with us on this journey, so we’re making it a little easier to keep up.
It should be an exciting week. We’ll be in the PlayStation booth at gamescom, hosting some epic battles between guests of the convention. If you’re one of them, we’ll see you soon. If not, we’ll be waiting for you in the Plaguelands later on this fall.
Rise of Iron: PlayStation-Exclusive Map, Quest and Ship
Justin from PS.Blog here, with first details on Destiny: Rise of Iron’s PlayStation-exclusive content. When Rise of Iron launches later this fall, PlayStation Guardians will have the opportunity to get their hands on a PvP map, quest and ship not available anywhere else. Here’s a quick look:
Quest line: Show of Strength
“While you serve the Vanguard in the Plaguelands, I wonder if you’d be so kind as to help me understand the more brutal aspects of the Devil Splicers’ brand of worship.” – Tyra Karn
Reward for Quest: Ship – Timeless Tereshkova
You are but the most recent entry in Cosmodrome’s long and legendary history.
PvP map: Icarus
Location: Languid Sea, Mercury
This Golden Age solar farm on Mercury has remained un-touched by the Vex for reasons unknown. The Vanguard has denied petitions from various weapon foundries to research it until the Warlock orders have finished their surveys first. An exemption has been granted to Lord Shaxx and his Crucible: the Guardians are free to utilize Icarus as a live-fire training zone.
- Icarus is a mid-sized PVP map compatible with any 6v6 game mode.
- The outer perimeter features a circular flow mixed with long sightlines and close-combat environments.
- The main chamber’s closing doors provide a fast, but dangerous, path through the center of the map.
