Now we know that Bungie and Sony has become the best of buddies since Bungie’s new IP, Destiny, had been announced to being available on both PlayStation consoles, as well as both Xbox consoles and PC. So close that the PlayStation will be receiving some exclusive timed content, which includes access to additional co-op and competitive maps and gear, but it seems that the timed content might be available longer then most of us expected, as Sony may retain this exclusivity until as late as fall 2015, according to the game’s listing on Amazon.
This timed-exclusive content slated for PlayStation 3 and PS4 Destiny players, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog earlier this month, includes a handful of new ships, the Monte Carlo assault rifle, Hawkmoon hand cannon and a new set of armor each for the Warlock, Titan and Hunter classes. The DLC pack also includes the three-person co-op Dust Palace Strike map and the Exodus Blue competitive multiplayer map.
According to Amazon, this DLC won’t be available to Destiny players on other platforms — Xbox 360 and Xbox One — until a year after the game’s initial release.
“Exclusive content for PlayStation 4 owners includes the Exodus Blue Competitive Multiplayer Map, Dust Palace Strike, Weapons, Ships and Gear that will only be on PlayStation until at least Fall 2015,” reads the listing.
Destiny will launch in beta on July 17 for PS3 and PS4. An Xbox 360 and Xbox One beta will launch at a later date. The game will release in full on all four platforms on Sept. 9.
