Amazon Prime members interested in picking up Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition may want to click through the site as they can pre-order the game at a pretty special price. Available for both Xbox One and PS4, Prime members who pre-order the Legendary Edition will get access to the base Destiny game, both previous expansions as well as the Taken King expansion for a total of $50.

The Taken King is Bungie’s “Mega expansion” that is larger than your standard DLC but smaller than your usual AAA full size game. In Bungie’s ten year plan for Destiny, every other year beginning with this year will see the release of an expansion while the other years will see the game’s sequels. Destiny 2 will be released in 2016. Some of the new additions to the Taken King include:

  • New Campaign: A massive Hive Dreadnaught ship looms in the rings of Saturn. Oryx, The Taken King has arrived in our solar system, bringing with him a corrupted army to exact revenge on the Guardians who destroyed his son Crota, and to consume our worlds. Arm yourself with newfound abilities, weapons, and gear. Defeat the Taken hordes. Make your way aboard the Dreadnaught, and face Oryx himself within his inner sanctum.
  • New Locations: The amazing Destiny universe continues to expand – Infiltrate a Cabal base on Phobos, and establish a beachhead on Oryx’s flagship – the Dreadnaught – a mysterious, loot-filled fortress. Charge into the Crucible where all-new competitive multiplayer maps await you and your Fireteam.
  • Level Cap Increased and All-New Gear: Fill your arsenal with brand new weapons and armor. Find and collect new, powerful Exotics while continuing to level up in the Destiny universe.

The level cap increase will alllow Guardians to reach light level 40 and we’ve detailed the Dreadnaught location previously which you can read about here. Personally, I’ve stopped playing Destiny but this is still a great price if you plan on jumping into the fray on a fresh start with The Taken King. With the expansion alone costing $40, this means that for an extra $10 you are getting the base game as well as both expansions. With Bungie’s pricing making some waves lately, we’ll keep an eye out on the reactions of this pre-order bonus.  The $50 price will be available at checkout for Prime members.
