Destiny: The Taken King, the first major expansion for Bungie and Activision’s persistent world MMO shooter, is almost here, and ahead of the official launch, we are learning more and more about the game, some speculative, and some more concrete.

For instance, RagingGeko on Reddit pointed out that a survey for Destiny had questions that seem to suggest that a major plot twist may be coming up in the game some time in the future- possibly as a way to ignite, and then maintain, interest in the title, beyond just new gameplay mechanics. Of course, this is on very flimsy grounds, but it could be a precursor to some big in game event that Bungie and Activision have got planned. However take this piece of information with a grain of salt unless you hear it directly from Bungie or Activision.

On a more concrete front, a YouTuber has discovered the bonus content that will be offered to GameStop customers who pre-order Destiny: the Taken King through the games retail chain in the USA. This content is apparently based on the in game weapons manufacturer Suros, and will include new weapons and customisation options. Yeah, don’t go around expecting any physical bonuses. The bonuses include avatar emblem, a skin shader, and three Suros-made weapons: the PRR-11 Auto Rifle, the BNS-13 Pulse Rifle, and the WSC-17 Scout Rifle.

Destiny: The Taken King launches soon on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more coverage and information.

    It isn’t through GameStop, it is available to ANY preorder of the Taken King. Do some real research.

  • Charlie Bourque

    HA! “Destiny” and “Plot” in the same sentence… that’s the funniest thing I’ve read in a while. Needed that on a Monday.

    • Ryan Petko

      What a surprise… Someone else saying Destiny had no plot, simply because he was probably expecting the plot to be shoved down his throat by long cinematic scenes… Not realizing that your Ghost pretty much explains why you’re doing what you’re doing.

    • Charlie Bourque

      I am well aware of what the ghost added to the game. It was a thin layer of situational commentary. When compared to other games in the similar genre such as the Boarderlands series, or the Mass Effect series…. there is no comparison. I’m not saying it’s a bad game, I do like it. But story is not one of its strengths.

    • Ryan Petko

      I actually think it was the right amount of story. Not so little that you didn’t know what you were trying to do, but not so much as to drown you in the story, wondering when things will pick up the pace.

    • Charlie Bourque

      I’ve always appreciated the games that tell great stories. I’m playing the Witcher 3 rite now, and the story element that plays out, is nothing short of amazing. Lots of cinematic cut scenes though, so if that isn’t your thing then you would probably be hitting skip constantly lol.

    • Ryan Petko

      I actually think that’s one thing i DIDN’T like about playing through Destiny. No matter how many times you’ve seen certain cutscenes, even considering how few there are, they cannot be skipped.

    • Ryan Murray

      They will be able to be skipped in the taken king

  • Delsin Rowe

    LoL Destiny and plot.
