Bungie developers are backpedaling due to recent outcry from the Destiny community over exclusive perks being offered to players purchasing the collector's edition of The Taken King expansion.
The issue stems in part from the sale of the $80 CE that allows for several in game emotes and perks that are missing from lower end editions of the expansion. The CE comes bundled with the base game and all other released content to date along with the special perks.
The necessity of purchasing the top end edition of the expansion in order to receive the perks is what most concerns long time players.
Bungie is taking a conciliatory tone by offering "Year One" players new, and ostensibly, better Loyalty Perks. What those are has not been revealed, but the team promises to do so on the next Weekly Update:
Dague told Forbes: “Year-one players won’t get the same perks as people who buy a collector’s edition. They’ll get something better. Tune into the Weekly Update for more."
