Destiny The Taken King Crucible preview 1

Update:

Now that the update is out, Bungie posted a number of support pages about Silver on their Help Forums.

A couple key points are below:

  • Silver is account bound, which means Silver will be available to all characters on the purchasing account.
  • Silver cannot be transferred to another account.
  • Silver is tied to console family it was purchased on.
  • Players can spend Silver to purchase Eververse Trading Co. items, which are used to enhance your Destiny experience. Items purchased from the Eververse Trading Co. are available to all characters on the purchasing account. These items are cosmetic and are not required to access any part of Destiny.

According to Game Informer, everyone playing Destiny today will receive 400 Silver, while those who pre-ordered the Digital Collector’s Edition for The Taken King before the upgrade was announced will receive 2000 Silver.

Rare emotes run you 200 Silver each, and The Slow Clap and Carlton cost 500 Silver each.

Original Story:

When update 2.0.1 goes live for Destiny today, Eververse Trading will offer paid emotes that you can purchase using the new in-game currency known as Silver.

With the PlayStation Store updating today in North America and Europe, we now know how much Silver will cost on all platforms:

  • 2000 Destiny Silver (+300 Bonus) – $19.99/£15.99
  • 1000 Destiny Silver (+100 Bonus) – $9.99/£7.99
  • 500 Destiny Silver – $4.99/£3.99

Here’s Bungie’s description of Silver:

Purchase 2000 Destiny Silver and receive 300 bonus Destiny Silver, an in-game currency you can use in Destiny to buy goods for your character in the Eververse Store.

Visit Tess Everis in the Tower to see her available inventory.

If you don’t want to purchase Silver, Bungie said they will be giving some away for free to all players, but didn’t specify how much.

You’ll be able to spend the Silver on these 18 new emotes:

  • Chest Pump
  • Crying on the knees
  • Bring It On
  • Evil Hand Rub
  • Finger Across The Neck
  • Bow
  • Slow Clap
  • Blowing a Kiss
  • Fist Pump
  • Baseball Swing
  • And You’re Safe
  • Give Me a Break
  • Scared
  • Good Job
  • Tantrum
  • Victory Cheer
  • The Carlton

It’s unclear how much each emote will cost.

Which emotes do you plan on buying?
