The Taken King Launches Today

DeeJ from Bungie, here, writing to you during a crazy week for the Destiny community.

Just a few hours ago, we released The Taken King. Your new adventure has begun! We’re standing by, eager to behold to your progress as you rush back out to the stars to confront Oryx and his Taken minions of the Darkness. Those of you who are brave enough to level up in time may even be ready for the King’s Fall Raid on Friday, at 10AM Pacific.

This should be a week of action and adventure, and just the right way to begin Destiny Year Two. We hope you’ll be on hand for the journey. It’s been a pleasure to share this experience with you since the launch of Destiny, and we’re nowhere near done telling stories about the dangers your Guardians face.

Are you ready?

We hope you are not. There are some surprises we’ve told you nothing about. They are for you to discover.

DeeJ, out.

  • AWESOME! Can’t wait to play. I pre-ordered both the digital and physical collectors editions. I haven’t played any other game since I got Destiny a year ago. I’m having a great fun time!

  • Wanted to be aware for the release but fell asleep. Woke up at 5 in the morning just to play it as much as I could. Loving The Taken King already and everything that’s been put it. Oryx, you’re going down!

  • So DeeJ I’ve been playing since day one raiding, POE, and what not never got a Monte Carlo. Then today I did the tower quest got a green engram and guess what popped up. I can’t wait to get home after work today and get all three of my characters to level 40.

  • I can’t get the digital upgrade because I own the disk but I own everything else,. I’m supposed to be able to get it for $20. What’s wrong

  • Can’t wait to pick up my Collectors Edition on the way home, it’s gonna match my original Collectors Edition of Destiny, which is actually awesome

  • WHY CANT WE PURCHASE THE DIGITAL COLLECTORS EDITION CONTENT?

    • Guardian since Alpha First Look. ‘Vintage’ Strikes still don’t reward Vanguard Gear(no rewards at all actually, while ‘New’ Strikes require Better Gear, which Legendary Marks are Required for the Better Gear, but Legendary Marks are rewards of the ‘New’ Strikes which require the Better Gear. Paradox Anyone? The New Story Missions better Reward Legendary Marks or I’m returning this Clunky DLC.
      And I was also interested in the $20 Collector’s Upgrade, but I might be cancelling my Guardianship due to Luke Smith being an Asshat(His Words)

    • I have been researching why the $20 Digital Content add-on is not out in the US yet. In Europe it is already in the PS store. In the US we get an update to the store between 3pm-7pm eastern time. After this “Update” it SHOULD be available to get. I’m glad I’m at work until then so I’m not home stressing out.

  • No more of this fraud game. I’ll pass.

  • Played a bit of story, like what I see so far. Did it then took a break for breakfast lol. About to go back at it. See y’all on the battlefield, fellow guardians

  • Huge improvement. The focus in storytelling is so welcomed. If it would have started out this way it would have scored 9s all the way.

  • Love this game play all the time ,thanks to my best friend who helped me at the start.the last time I was like this was fallout 3

  • DeeJ could you ask Bungie to make for those of us who download our games. To make the cover art look like the new taken king theme?

  • I really like what I am seeing. I haven’t played since Dark Below even though I own the Digital Guardian Edition. I am really looking forward to diving deep into HoW and TTK and trying my first Heroic Strike. The tour was great and got everything fresh in my mind again. It was nice receiving all the items as well. I really feel like Bungie is trying. So far so good!

  • Deej, please tell us when will Bungie implement optional matchmaking for all activities. I want to have the option to do strikes solo and use matchmaking for raids.

  • I have been researching why the $20 Digital Content add-on is not out in the US yet. In Europe it is already in the PS store. In the US we get an update to the store between 3pm-7pm eastern time.

  • Can someone let me know when Destiny: Digital Collector’s Edition Upgrade goes on sale at a discount?

  • This game has repetitive PvE and laggy PvP. This game was designed to drain your wallet. With the new update there is no cross account sharing, so every memeber in your household will have to purchase the game.
    The game is subscription based with the subscription price disguised as “DLC” which you have to pay for every three months or you can’t play the new or old game any longer.
    Shame on Bungie for the thinly disguised attempt at cheating the gamer out of his money.

  • Will you guys restock the Collectors Edition or no? Wasnt able to secure one due to reasons.
