The last Guardians

It’s taken what feels like an absolute eternity, but Destiny finally has the hype that it needs to make back that $500 million Activision production and marketing budget. The title’s presence at last week’s E3 2014 certainly helped, but it’s the first-person shooter’s recent Alpha test that has propelled anticipation through the stratosphere, with the majority of Push Square towers head over heels in love with the release.

Much like Watch Dogs, it’s a game that you’ll want to play on the PlayStation 4, too. In addition to the usual roster of potential performance enhancements, Sony has teamed up with Bungie to create a batch of exclusive content – including a unique co-op Strike located on Mars, an exclusive competitive map, and a slew of exclusive guns, gear, and ships. You can see all of these bits and bobs in their full glory on the PlayStation Blog.

Don’t worry if you don’t own a next-gen machine yet, as you’ll also nab these goodies on the PlayStation 3. However, it’s worth pointing out that if you’re willing to upgrade, you’ll be able to purchase the game alongside the PS4’s gorgeous limited edition ‘Glacier White’ shell.
