Destiny's PlayStation-exclusive content detailed in full

UPDATE: Exclusive until autumn 2015, Eurogamer told.

UPDATE 23/6/14 5.05pm Activision has contacted Eurogamer again to retract it's earlier comments and state that, for now, it has yet to formally announce any details regarding the Destiny content's timed exclusivity.

UPDATE 23/6/14 1.15pm Activision has told Eurogamer that Destiny's PlayStation-exclusive content will remain exclusive until "fall 2015".

As previously reported below, retailers had hinted that Bungie's DLC missions and extras were only a timed-exclusive for PlayStation platforms.

Destiny is due to be released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on 9th September 2014, meaning that Sony and Activision's agreement will run for a full year.

Earlier this month, Sony detailed the exclusive content PlayStation owners would get when the game launches - in other words, what Xbox gamers wouldn't. A co-op mission, a competitive multiplayer map, armour, guns and ships are included.

ORIGINAL STORY 17/6/14 10.15am Sony has revealed the exclusive Destiny content for PlayStation owners that will be available when the game launches this September.

'Timed exclusive until at least Fall 2015.'

Writing on the EU PlayStation blog, Sony explained that PS4 and PS3 owners will get the Mars-based Dust Palace Strike co-op mission, the competitive Exodus Blue map, plus a sprinkling of armour, guns and ships.

But how long will all of this content remain exclusive to PlayStation? Bungie and Activision aren't saying. We've asked for more details.

There's been no formal confirmation that the extras will arrive for Xbox 360 and Xbox One at some point, but a PlayStation Store listing last week noted that Sony had "timed exclusivity" on the content, while an Amazon page stated that it would be a "timed exclusive until at least Fall 2015".

The Dust Palace Strike will see you hunting a Cabal extraction team through a ruined Martian skyscraper, while the Exodus Blue Competitive map is set on a derelict spaceship.

Three armour sets and two weapons - the Monte Carlo assault rifle and the Hawkmoon hand cannon - plus three ship variants will also be available only on PlayStation. Take a look at the lot in the gallery below.
