Destiny fans might be a little disappointed with The Taken King being a full $40 upgrade. However, in our recent interview with Bungie, they shed some light on how Season Pass holders will benefit.
During E3 2015 we got a chance to interview Mark Noseworthy, Executive Producer at Bungie. We asked him if people who already own the season pass will benefit from picking up The Taken King. He replied with the following, “We want to roll out the white glove treatment for them in what we’re calling the VIP Edition.” It’s great to see that fans will be getting some rewards as well as Mark continued, “They’re going to be getting an exclusive emblem, shader, and a sparrow and some other things in the tower to commemorate the first year of Destiny and to say ‘thank you’ to the community for playing the game.”
After taking a look at their pre-order page, there’s more detailed information on what Mark Noseworthy said. It seems fans will have a strict timeframe to redeem as well as get to level 30 or have purchased both DLC’s previously.
“*TO BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE THE VIP REWARDS, PLAYERS WILL NEED TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE LIGHT LEVEL 30 CHARACTER OR OWN BOTH EXPANSION I AND EXPANSION II ON OR BEFORE 08/31/15 AND PURCHASE AND PLAY THE TAKEN KING ON OR BEFORE 02/01/16. VIP REWARDS APPLICABLE FOR ANY ELIGIBLE PURCHASE OF DESTINY: THE TAKEN KING, DESTINY: THE TAKEN KING – LEGENDARY EDITION, AND DESTINY: THE TAKEN KING – COLLECTOR’S EDITION (DIGITAL OR PHYSICAL).”
