In anticipation of the launch of “Destiny 2” this week, the folks at Bungie and Activision were kind enough to send us the Collector’s Edition of the much-hyped game.
The “Destiny 2” Collector’s Edition is the biggest, most expensive version of the game you can buy. The $US250 box set includes the full game, two expansion packs that won’t be available separately at launch, and a whole lot of other goodies that every “Destiny” fan will appreciate.
Take a look inside.
This is the SteelBook case that contains the actual game. It's a solid metal box with a gorgeous design.
When you open it up, you'll see the 'Destiny 2' game disc. You'll also find a card that contains the code you'll need to redeem the in-game rewards you receive for purchasing the Collector's Edition of the game.
Next to the SteelCase box you'll see this golden Collector's Box, which contains most of the other items in the Collector's Edition.
The design on the front of the Collector's Box is just so cool. It depicts the Cabal, the alien force you have to battle in 'Destiny 2.'
Inside the Collector's Box, you'll see a number of cards and collectibles. This white booklet is actually a flip-book filled with game-related artwork and lore.
Inside the Collector's Box, you'll also find a giant poster depicting Lord Ghaul, the big bad in 'Destiny 2,' and his Cabal army, which is known as The Red Legion.
This awesome postcard also comes in the Collector's Box. It looks like some kind of alien whale swallowing a city.
Another fun 'postcard' has a drawing that's open to interpretation. It kind of looks like an angler fish, but you can also see a spaceship flying towards what looks like a decimated planetoid. And on the other side of the planetoid, on the part that looks like a fish, is a shining city.
This is a cool-looking sticker that comes in the Collector's Box. I'm honestly not sure what it signifies, but it might have some meaning when you play the game.
Speaking of stickers, this one has a neat hologram effect. The image changes depending on your viewing angle. Sometimes it's two Cabal soldiers ...
The final pieces in the Collector's Box are these three metal tokens, which have the same heft and feel as dice.
The metal pieces are very interesting when you view them up-close. The markings on each piece signify a different discipline you can choose for your Guardian (your character). From left, the pieces symbolise the titan, warlock, and hunter disciplines.
Inside the Collector's Edition package, below the SteelBook case and the Collector's Box, you'll find this item. It looks like a broken sword with Destiny artwork on it -- but there's more to it than meets the eye.
Now that all of those items are out of the box, it's time to remove the shell to see what's underneath.
Actually, this 'Frontier bag' can be a backpack, or a messenger bag, or a sling bag, depending on how you wear it, according to this instruction manual.
Inside the Frontier bag you'll find a 15-inch laptop sleeve, a strand of utility rope, and a solar blanket.
Finally, here's a shot of everything you'll get in the $250 'Destiny 2' Collector's Edition: the solar panel USB charger, the Frontier bag (and its accessories), the Collector's Box (with all its included collectible goodies), and the 'Destiny 2' SteelBook case with the game and its expansions.
