When you stride through the Tower, people are going to ask you where you got those wonderful toys. You’ll nod and let them know you earned them. It’s a Year One thing, and they just wouldn’t understand. And they won’t ever be able to get their hands on their own set.
As of recent, Bungie is actively working to make the digital content from the Collector’s Edition available in a $20 upgrade bundle (suggested retail price), available on 9/15/2015. If you purchased a stand-alone version of Destiny: The Taken King, or already have, you’ll be able to pick up the digital items as soon as they are available.
The Taken King Collector’s Edition Digital Content consists of: (3) Class Specific Emotes, (3) Armor Shaders, and (3) Exotic Class Items with XP Bonuses.
If you have decided to pick up the Legendary Edition of Destiny: The Taken King at retail, you can also elect to pick this up if you want to upgrade into a Collector’s Edition.
If you purchased the existing Digital Collector’s Edition, and you already owned Destiny and both expansion packs, Bungie will have some additional information for you soon.
For guardians looking for a little more context about emotes and class items in The Taken King, Bungie will be introducing new class items with stat attributes. These items will provide players with another gear slot that can contribute to both your guardian’s look and build preferences. The class items included in the Collector’s Edition are a welcome addition for players looking to level up newborn guardians or fresh sub-classes, but they are not the only new class items available in Destiny: The Taken King. This is part of Bungie’s focus to make the game more rewarding and to add more variety options for players.
The article transitions into a Q&A relating to the Collector’s Edition.
“Hey, I have Destiny and all its expansions. Do I really have to buy stuff I already own to play The Taken King?”
The Digital Download is for existing players who already own Destiny and both expansion packs, and are ready to jump straight into The Taken King this September.
“Hey, I’ve been here since day one. What do I get?”
If you already have a Light Level 30 Guardian, or if you’ve picked up and played both The Dark Below and House of Wolves, then you’re a VIP in The Tower’s book. They’ll reward you accordingly with a victory lap that will include a permanently exclusive set of items.
This is all Bungie had to mention today as an early read until the real update for tomorrow. They’ll have more fun stuff for you to announce in the very short term future.
