Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition is basically everything Destiny in one package. You’ll get the base game, plus all three expansions—Expansion I: The Dark Below, Expansion II: House of Wolves, and The Taken King, which came out on September 15. 

The Legendary Edition is $60, but it’s a pretty good price for the content. This is a good time to look into picking up Destiny if you’ve had your eye on it for a while. We reviewed the House of Wolves expansion, which added new story elements, areas, and gameplay option. We also reviewed The Taken King last month when it came out:

It seems like Bungie has finally found their rhythm in the management of their current flagship franchise, Destiny. When the game originally came out, it was kind of a mess. Even basic things like the quest and bounty tracking interface were deeply flawed. But when Destiny’s second expansion House of Wolves came out, they fixed a lot of the things that badly needed fixing and generally began moving the game in the right direction. I am very pleased to say that the newest expansion, the The Taken King, continues that trend. For one thing, the quest and bounty interface is much improved.

Destiny is one of the few big first-person shooters that’s rated T, not M.  The Taken King continues Destiny’s T rating (for animated blood and violence). Another thing that might interest readers of this website: Patrol mode on the Dreadnaught is a great way to play with friends and family of various skill levels.  It’s rewarding and fun, but it doesn’t need to be difficult unless you want it to be.

Overall, Destiny has been getting better and better. This Legendary Edition might be well worth the price.
