  • PlayStation-Exclusive Content for Destiny Detailed by Sony

    You already knew that the PlayStation platform would get some exclusive content for Destiny, now you'll know just what that content is and how it may just be a timed-exclusive. The PlayStation blog, in a piece written by Sid Shuman, details some of the content PlayStation owners will get to access first.


    At launch, PS4 and PS3 owners will get exclusive access to a unique co-op Strike located on Mars, an exclusive competitive map, and a slew of exclusive guns, gear, and ships. Read on for the full details below. Oh, and if you tried out Destiny’s PS4-exclusive First Look Alpha over the weekend, let us know what you think in the comments below!

    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.

    It really sounds as though these pieces of content are merely timed-exclusives for the PlayStation platform. Who knows, I could be wrong, but there is a very good chance it's only timed.
