Destiny 1’s Taken King and Rise of Iron content, which were exclusively available on Sony PlayStation until now, have finally arrived on Microsoft Xbox. The information does not come from Destiny’s developer or publisher, rather one Reddit user noticed that the Destiny 1 exclusive content is now unlocked.
Destiny 1 players on Xbox and Sony PS4 always have cold shoulders for each other for the simple reason that PS4 users always have more content because of an exclusive deal that Sony has with publisher Activision. Under the exclusive deal between Sony and Activision, the game and all the expansion, along with some Destiny 2 content, was first available on PlayStation, and not Xbox. Some of the exclusive contents include the lengthy cooperative missions known as strikes, quest lines, maps from the Crucible, powerful and exotic level weapons and so on.
The Destiny 1 PS4 exclusive content for the Rise of Iron now available to the Xbox users includes: “Show of Strength” quest from Tyra Karn; Icarus, a Crucible map set on Mercury; Iron Camelot armor for all classes from Dusty Iron Engrams.
Exclusive The Taken King content now available to Xbox includes: Echo Chamber, a strike on Venus; Zen Meteor, an exotic sniper rifle; “Fight Fire with Fire” quest from Petra Venj; Sector 618, a Crucible map set on Earth; Sublime Engram armor sets for each of the three classes; and Jade Rabbit, an exotic scout rifle.
For the Xbox players waiting for the Destiny 2 PS4 exclusives, the wait is still not over. According to Polygon, the deal between Activision and Sony says that Destiny 2 PS4 exclusives won’t hit Windows PC or Xbox until “at least Fall 2018.” It must be noted that Destiny 2 is already available on the Xbox One and PS4, and will come to the PC later this month.
Separately, a few days back, there were reports that Destiny 2 on PlayStation 4 was still marred by crashing issues that had been interfering with the progress in the game. According to the game developer Bungie, they are working to fix the issue. Players are seeing error CE-34878-0, which is disturbing their gameplay and causing the crash. Both PS4 and PS4 Pro users have reported the issue with the game.
In a statement, the developer said, “We are continuing to work with our platform partners at Sony to address an issue where players encounter PlayStation Error CE-34878-0.” Bungie also asked the players to follow @BungieHelp and @AskPlayStation on Twitter to get the latest updates about the issue.
After turning off the HDCP settings, some users were able to reduce the frequency at which the problem was occurring. However, no steps were able to address the issue permanently. Forums such as Destiny 2 Subreddit, as well as, Bungie’s own Destiny 2 forum are flooded with such crash reports. Mostly, users are encountering the issues when they enter the tower, but some have reported glitches even before that, notes Christian Today.
Despite the issue, the game is immensely popular, and recently crossed 1.2 million players online at the same time. However, a new record is expected to be made when the game hits the PCs later this month.
