Destiny: The Taken King’s Legendary edition is all of Destiny for a lower price

Shoot time!

With all of the changes brought to Destiny with The Taken King, it’s entirely understandable that you might want to get into the game. But it’s also entirely understandable if you didn’t want to buy the expansion’s Collector’s Edition with a whole lot of extra stuff when you weren’t even sure whether or not you’d like the game. So why not pick up the Legendary Edition, which contains the base game, the two DLC packs, and the expansion without any further extraneous stuff?

This option is obviously not recommended if you already have the base game and the DLC, but it may well be appealing to people who want to jump in but don’t want to buy the full CE sight unseen. You can check out a trailer for the game just below if you want a bit more motivation.

I downloaded the demo two weekends ago and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It prompted me to go ahead and buy the Legendary Edition and I’ve enjoyed the game immensely. Playing a shooter with a joypad has taken some getting used to, but I’ve become pretty good at it (the auto-aim helps!). The best approximation I can make is Destiny in it’s present form (more on that later) most resembles Borderlands 2 with a realistic aesthetic and more gear (armor pieces instead of just weapons). The drawback is the progression in the game from a narrative point is somewhat messy until you get to The Taken King content. And there game world is far, far smaller. Many of the same maps are used to represent multiple missions and at first it felt like cheating. But considering how detailed each map is, maybe that’s understandable.
If I had bought the original game I would have been furious. But with the two DLC and the expansion PLUS all the structural changes to the game this turned out to be a perfect wait and see from an enjoyment and fiscal perspective.
It probably won’t hold me as long as Borderlands, but it’s been fun so far. My 6 hour play session this past Saturday backs that up.

Estranged Enikuo Damonvile Yangers The game has been restructured to really only reward owners of the taken King over the other 2 expansions. 

Other games do offer the highest content to the newest expansion, but by no means are things in the past restuctured to give less. They usually just give what they used to, only being trumped by the new content.

You also can’t mistake the 2.0 update for being the expansion. They are separate.

All strikes, raids and a LFG list of the original strikes are available.  There are three PvP modes available.  

Some PvP is normalized, but some isn’t…  

Do you really want someone in level 34 gear going against level 40s in raid gear?

The heroic and nightfall versions of year 1 are not available to players without the Xpac. 

However, they are receiving the benefits of the Xpac, including new inventory management and quest management.

Estranged Damonvile Yangers They locked players out modes of play that were previously available – strikes and PvP. I think what you’re trying to imply that those were level capped activities and level cap was raised. But, that is disingenuous and it’s not typical or how games work.
Shooters don’t remove old maps and MMOs don’t shut down old dungeons and raids when they roll out new stuff or raise the level cap. Raising the level cap doesn’t obfuscate the fact that players had access to a mode of play that they lost after the expansion launched. 
I get that it’s a good game, but that is a completely fair criticism against Bungie.

Damonvile Estranged Yangers What did they take away?  Only Xpac owners have access to high level playlists in any game.

Estranged Yangers What other game actually took content away if you didn’t buy the new expansion ? Limiting access to new stuff is expected but to actually block access to things they once had… can’t say I’ve seen that before.

I’m not against destiny but that really was a low blow to fans.

Poosammich Like I said above, old players can pay $40.  New players always get a better deal.  This is gaming.
