Destiny: The Taken King broke the record for the most downloaded day-one game in PlayStation history and set a new day-one franchise benchmark for both total players and peak online concurrency, surpassing the original Destiny launch day last September, which was itself the biggest new video game franchise launch in history.
"Destiny: The Taken King is officially the most downloaded game on day-one in PlayStation history and set a new benchmark for both total Destiny players and peak online concurrency on day-one, so it's safe to say the Destiny franchise continues to gain momentum," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "Along with our talented partners at Bungie, we cannot wait to watch the community continue to grow and tackle the King's Fall Raid kicking off on Friday."
For players who are new to Destiny, everything needed to jump in is available in the Legendary Edition which includes: Destiny, Expansion I: The Dark Below, Expansion II: House of Wolves, and features The Taken King offered at a suggested retail price of $59.99, a tremendous value for the scope of the content offered. Those who have already purchased Destiny and both expansions can purchase a digital or physical retail copy of The Taken King by itself for a suggested retail price of $39.99. Both Destiny: The Taken King and the Legendary Edition are available at thousands of retail stores around the world, and also are available for digital download.
