Gamescom 2014: Destiny Pre-Orders Soar, DLC Announced
Destiny isn't even out yet and it's already breaking records.
As revealed during Sony's Gamescom press conference, Bungie's upcoming blockbuster is now the most pre-ordered new IP in GameStop's history.
Of course, that eliminates a lot of huge sequels, like ones in the Call of Duty franchise, but it's a significant accomplishment nonetheless. Said GameStop senior vice president of merchandising Bob Puzon:
"With the launch of Activision's Destiny just around the corner, our GameStop associates are working diligently to prepare for what is currently our highest pre-ordered new IP in history. Based on the consumer excitement we are encountering in our stores every day, Destiny is on track to deliver a tremendous gaming experience."
Bungie also took the opportunity to show off a brand new trailer, and shared some fresh details regarding the PlayStation-exclusive content. The Exodus Blue map will be a timed exclusive for PS3 and PS4 players, for instance. Lastly, they announced that the game's first expansion pack, The Dark Below, will launch across all platforms in December.
Yeah, September 9 can't get here fast enough, right?
