Today, Sony detailed Destiny's PlayStation-exclusive content in a PlayStation Blog post. PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 owners of Destiny will receive a multiplayer map, a Strike mission, three sets of armor, two weapons, and three spacecraft.

The mid-sized multiplayer map is called "Exodus Blue" and is built for Control, Destiny's version of Domination. According to Destiny's developer, Bungie, "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."

PlayStation owners will also be able to play through a three-player co-op mission on Mars called "The Dust Palace Strike." According to the blog post, "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."

Three sets of armor and two weapons will be exclusive, as well. In addition to the Monte Carlo assault rifle and Hawkmoon handcannon, Manifold Seeker armor for Warlocks, Vanir armor for Titans, and Argus armor for Hunters will be available.

Finally, PlayStation owners will have exclusive access to three spacecraft: the Aurora Wake, the Crypt Hammer, and the Outrageous Fortune. According to Bungie, the Aurora Wake has "ahull lined with arcane instruments, crafted by a circle of Warlocks – gifting the ship with a preternatural sense for the strange." The Crypt Hammer is "a deep-strike insertion variant, built to carry Guardians safely through contested space." The Outrageous Fortune is "A rugged, versatile explorer for those ready to gamble everything in search of ancient secrets and alien power."

GameSpot editors played a lot of the Destiny alpha and liked their time with it. You can read our impressions of the game here.

Destiny is due out on September 9 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3.

    You're wrong.. Some of it is timed.. Remember Sony payed for bungee to develop some of it so it will never see another console.. Like the extra maps and weapons etc

    Eurogamer is reporting that the exclusivity to this content is until "at least until Fall 2015". << LINK REMOVED >>

    << LINK REMOVED >> Since Activision was the publisher I would of thought it would of been similar to the way COD content goes. But who knows.

    @xxmavr1kxx @Ha2e Sony probably opened the bank to them. Since Microsoft burned them with the CoD content last gen and this gen, they probably want to make a statement doing it with one of their former in-house developers. I wonder if there is any exclusivity to future DLC as well

    The Destiny Alpha was awesome ! I wasn't sold on this game before,but after playing the alpha I'm a believer.

    I was afraid the multiplayer will be sh!tty like Halo but it actually felt pretty good.And the strike missions were very fun and challenging.I could see myself teaming up with 2 friends every night to do some of those strike missions.I still don't know much about the story though which worries me a little bit.

    This is not timed exclusive content.It's just exclusive content period so stop calling it timed.A timed exclusive implies that these things will eventually also come to the x.bone, which will not happen.

    Well I finally played the Alpha and found it a little boring, only ran into a few bugs. Got to level 5 and then the severs went down. The timed exclusives are not enough to persuade me to get the PS4 version.

    These exclusivity deals are getting out of hand. This sucks for fans of both consoles. I understand most of these deals are timed-exclusive, like this one, but a lot of these games I'm barely playing 3 months down the line. Its always best to have as much of the content of the game when you're first excited to play it.

    That being said the alpha was awesome and the game seems like it will be worth the $60 with or without this stuff.

    No over the shoulder perspective is no buy for me. ah well looked good anyways. =)

    @Kinguard73 When you're in the main city the camera zooms back to 3rd person while you're running around so that you can see your character and any of the cool armor/weapons you've acquired. Which i believe was a nice addition made by bungie.

    I don't enjoy competitive multiplayer shooters in the 3rd person view because it promotes camping with lots of people hiding behind corners using the camera as an unrealistic advantage.

    << LINK REMOVED >> Agree, and I played the alpha. It was fun for a day but you grow tired of it rather quickly. The PvP was in my opinion horrible.

    The Hand Cannon and armors are probably the only good stuff. Ships are w/e, there is plenty of ships, all 3 of them are the same model and there were ships that had the very same model in alpha. For items anyways.


    The gear is probably early lvl stuff, probably. The guns should be early lvl. The armors should be max lvl gear that is crafted with random stats and perks.

    Not on my radar. As an Xbox One owner, I must sever ties with Bungie. I'm not interested in a dumbed down version of a game I was only moderately sold on. And the more I read about it, the less appealing it is. MMOFPS? Sorry, not gonna grind one of these out.

    I'll live.

    When the Halo Collection comes out - this probably would've been put on the back burner anyway.

    Will there be a monthly fee I wonder? Continually updated content costs money.

    @Sevenizz There's not one,actually you don't even need PS+ If you're doing the Patrol and Story

    << LINK REMOVED >> I've heard nothing about a monthly fee. Tt will have dlc's(more dungeons, areas, maps, etc).


    That halo collection is nice, but we gamers need something better then just playing the older games that did things right.


    IMO, put $5 down for Destiny so you can play the Beta in.. probably August(for XB1). Then you can just get your $5 back if you don't care to buy.


    From what i experienced in Destiny, it will be worth the money.

    For those saying that these are times exclusives, may I invite you to actually read the article?

    Sentence one:

    "Today, Sony detailed Destiny's Playstation-exclusive content..."

    Nowhere in the article is the word "timed" or the phrase "times exclusive". Anyone who thinks they are may just be in denial.

    << LINK REMOVED >> Its timed, also found out today that the new Grim Fandango is a timed exclusive, whats with Sony and trying to claim full exclusivity on things that just...arent.

    << LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >>Sony never said it was full exclusive, also remember what was said at their e3 press conference they said "the games you are about to see are either exclusive first on playstation or looks better on playstation", with grim fandango they said first on playstation judging by your comment you seem to be a xbox fantr0ll(a lot of people might also see it this way as well) as with most sony insults they come from that side of gaming ,you all need to listen before taking out your twisted/hatefilled views online. or become a collector like me you'll be happier and you can then go around correcting ill informed fantr0lls.

    It's timed content- it's even in the fine print on the psn site. Here's an article about it: << LINK REMOVED >>
