first_imgIf you pick up Destiny: The Collection on Xbox One you may be getting a ton of Destiny content, including every single DLC pack released so far, but you won’t be getting all of it. Sony has paid good money to keep exclusive Destiny content for their platforms, and they are continuing with it in the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion.The big PS4 exclusive this time is a new quest called Show of Strength, the “story of a Guardian’s impressive feats in a troubled land.” The troubled land is the new world beyond the Cosmodrome, the Plaguelands, where genetically modified creatures called Devil Splicers roam.“While you serve the Vanguard in the Plaguelands, I wonder if you’d be so kind as to help me understand the more brutal aspects of the Devil Splicers’ brand of worship.” – Tyra Karn Completing this quest will reward you with more exclusive content, such as this ship, the Timeless Tereshkova.PS4 Destiny owners will also be able to play in a new exclusive PvP map called Icarus. This is a Golden Age solar farm located in the Languid Sea of Mercury (because really, where else could be a better place for one of those?) that has somehow remained un-touched by the Vex. No one is quite sure why they haven’t invaded, but they want to figure out what has kept it safe. The Vanguard has been denying petitions from weapon foundries to research the place, but they have allowed Lord Shaxx to utilize it as a life-fire training zone. On the PlayStation, at least.Icarus is a mid-sized map that works with any 6v6 game mode. It’s got lots of long sightlines as well as close-combat environments, and it probably gets really hot in those helmets. Check out how it looks in the gallery below! All of this content is exclusive to the PS4 until Fall 2017, so Xbox owners can expect to wait a full year to try it, if they’re not playing Destiny 2 by that point.In more inclusive Destiny news, Bungie has just revealed that Rise of Iron will also come with a long-requested feature- private matches. This will allow you to play almost any variation of Crucible with your friends, allowing the leader of a group to select game type, map, score limit, time limit, light level (enabled or disabled), and time of day. This means that you can run or play private tournaments now, or even just enter a Crucible map for yourself in order to get the lay of the land. Don’t expect Halo levels of game customization and tweaks just yet, but this is a good step in the right direction.Expect this new feature to hit with the Rise of Iron on September 20. <>last_img read more
