Destiny Ultimate Collector’s Edition Offers Players Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
Don’t just play the game – live the adventure!
BELLEVUE, Wash. – April 1, 2014 – On September 9th, Destiny players will truly Become Legend with the launch of the “Get Your Ass to Mars” Collector’s Edition. This exclusive offering will send them on an epic journey, spanning more than 30 million miles and culminating in the complete sensory experience that only the physical universe can provide.
To gear up for the mission, players will embark on the transformative experience of a lifetime. Far more than traditional cosplay, Bungie will stretch the physiological boundaries of character customization. Players who purchase the Destiny “Get Your Ass to Mars” Collector’s Edition will choose from of one of two fictional races – the exotic and mysterious Awoken or the robotic, death-dealing EXO. Fantasy will become reality through a highly experimental metamorphosis featuring cutting-edge skin dye treatments, voice modulation, cybernetic implants, and more!
“At Bungie, we’re always looking for exciting ways to immerse players in our fiction and our worlds,” said Bungie Chief Operating Officer, Pete Parsons. “What better way to maximize the potential of our passionate community than to physically alter and augment their frail human forms and fire the bravest and wealthiest among them into the cold and unforgiving vacuum of space?”
It doesn’t stop there. The Destiny “Get Your Ass to Mars” Collector’s Edition is as real as it gets – the ultimate in action and adventure – satisfying even the most hardcore appetites for the finest of gear. After regaining consciousness and use of their muscular system in our complimentary surgical recovery suite, players will fit themselves from head-to-toe with the armor necessary to keep them alive in the harsh, extreme conditions of outer space. Equipped with the latest in urine filtration technology, Bungie will ensure maximum hydration to help them reach their full potential in the wild frontier. In addition, players will be armed with experimental weaponry, and adorned with a fashionable cape and cloak combination befitting a Guardian of the last safe city.
Once they’re ready to head off-world in search of adventure, players are briefed and mentally prepared for a lengthy and psychologically devastating term of suspended animation, while engineers at Bungie work diligently to perfect, and lower the cost of interplanetary travel over the course of several brief, but uneventful decades of icy slumber.
This one of a kind experience will enable players to set themselves worlds apart from the rest of the would-be player base of Destiny. The reasonable cost of $7,000,000.00 is all that separates brave heroes from the adventure of a shortened lifetime. Quantities will be limited.
