Bungie and Activision announced today one of the largest content offerings in gaming to launch this year, Destiny – The Collection. Containing every release from the award-winning action shooter franchise to date, including the new large expansion, Destiny: Rise of Iron, Destiny – The Collection is the perfect opportunity for new Guardians to join the fight for humanity’s survival.
For legacy gen players, Destiny – The Collection marks the opportunity to transition to playing Destiny on a current gen system through the upgrade programme which begins today and runs until 31st January, 2017.
Destiny – The Collection will launch alongside Rise of Iron on 20th September, 2016 and will be available for the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. Gamers who pre-purchase Destiny – The Collection digitally will be able to experience Destiny, The Dark Below, House of Wolves, and The Taken King immediately, while awaiting the release of Rise of Iron.
“Destiny – The Collection is the perfect starting point for gamers who have yet to experience Destiny,”
Said Byron Beede, Sr. Vice President of Destiny at Activision.
“Destiny – The Collection contains some of the most engaging content Bungie has ever created and the soon-to-be released Rise of Iron. It also includes a character boost that will allow new players to instantly join in with friends who are already enjoying Destiny.”
Players who pre-order Destiny – The Collection or Rise of Iron will receive the black and silver Iron Gjallarhorn*, a fan favourite weapon making its return to power. Those that pre-order digitally or at select retailers will also receive the Iron Gjallarwing Sparrow.
