Bungie Breaks Promise & Introduces Paid Destiny Subclass Boosts


Destiny seems to be getting paid level and subclass boosts after all. Although Bungie recently denied paid boosts, paid level packs have now surfaced on the European PS Stores. So much for the "dust and echoes".

Recently Destiny dataminers uncovered paid experience boosts in the game’s sourcecode. According Bungie however, the ‘files’ were in fact remnant files that didn’t have a place in the game.

Destiny Paid boosts after all

Bungie denied that they would introduce paid experience boosts on Twitter, and even decided to write about the matter on their weekly Destiny Blog. According Bungie, players are just seeing “some dust and echoes from the cutting room floor”.

Someone datamined files that prove Tess will be selling King’s Fall consumables! You said you wouldn’t do that! Why are you doing that!?”

We’re not doing that. The files in question were actually first uncovered some time ago, well before the launch of Eververse Trading Company. They weren’t ever intended to be sold in exchange for Silver. What you’re seeing are remnant files for Three of Coins or Moldering Shard like items that would have been available from Xûr. Ultimately, the team decided that they didn’t have a place in the game, and cut them from the experience. You’re seeing some dust and echoes from the cutting room floor.

A promise is there to be broken right? Well it does look like it, as paid level packs have now surfaced for both the PS4 and PS3. The packs are available through the European PS Store, and each ‘pack’ is priced at £24.99 (€ 29.99). Interestingly, that’s almost half the price of the full game.

Packs are available for the Titan, Warlock, and Hunter and each pack contains a level boost to 25, alongside a subclass boost and a Telemetry.

So much for the “dust and echoes” Bungie. The dust seems to clear up and paid boosts echoes deeply.
