If you’ve been online at all today, you already know there are various pre-order options available for Destiny 2. Let’s have a closer look at those, because there are four in total at present.
As reported yesterday, Destiny 2 is now available for pre-order and without the standard edition included, the skus on offer are: a Collector’s Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition, Limited Edition and Standard plus Expansion Pass.
The Expansion Pass, which contains two, large expansions, is also available for pre-order.
Also, and as previously reported, pre-ordering the game nets early access to the beta with dates to be announced, but it’s slated for sometime this summer. Once pre-ordered, the code will be emailed within two business days.
Each of the editions, and the contents were posted yesterday, but we have images for each now which will provide you with a better idea of what you’ll be getting.
All options below include the base game and Expansion Pass along with in-game digital goodies. These digital extras are: a Legendary Sword, Legendary Player Emote and a Cabal Empire Themed Emblem.
Those who prefer to go the digital route can pre-order the Destiny 2: Digital Deluxe Edition for $99.99. It comes with the aforementioned contents.
If you like things which you can hold in your hand, the Destiny 2: Limited Edition might tempt you to spend $99.99/£89.99 (£79.99 for PC in the UK).
Along with the base game, digital content and Expansion Pass it includes the following:
Limited Edition SteelBook Case
Cabal-themed Collector’s Box, containing:
- Booklet with secrets into the Cabal Empire
- Cabal Schematic
- Collectible Postcard Images
- Cabal Military Pawns
For the collectors out there, the rather expensive Collector’s Edition ($249.99/£219.99) comes with the same contents as the Digital Deluxe and Limited Editions, but with more physical items than the latter. The PC version is the same price in the US but £209.99 in the UK.
Here’s the extra contents included with the Destiny 2: Collector’s Edition:
Destiny 2 – Frontier Bag
- Customizable bag that can be worn as a backpack or messenger bag
- 15” Laptop/Tablet Sleeve with protective pocket slip
- Solar panel USB charger with built-in light
- Solar blanket
Once again, like the Limited Edition it comes with a SteelBook Case and the same contents, along with the digital items included with it and the Deluxe Edition.
Over in North America, the Limited Edition is exclusive to GameStop. All pre-orders of Destiny 2 through the retailer will come with the Cayde-6 statue while supplies last – except for the Digital Deluxe version.
It’s the same story over in the UK, only physical editions of the game will include the Cayde 6 pre-order bonus and the figurine is exclusive to GAME. So is the Collector’s Edition.
Finally, you can also buy the base game plus the Expansion Pass for $89.99.
Destiny 2 will be released on September 8 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
We’ll get our first look at gameplay via livestream on May 18.
