Update: You can find exact price of the emotes here, courtesy of Reddit user Oagoz. It’s also been confirmed that all players will receive 400 Silver for free.
Starting today, Destiny will use a new in-game currency, called Silver, for players to purchase emotes for real money.
It will cost $4.99 for 500 Silver; $9.99 for 1,000 Silver, plus an extra 100 Silver; and $19.99 for 2,000 Silver, plus an extra 300 Silver.
It’s still unknown how much developer Bungie will charge players for the emotes, which it promises will be a purely cosmetic addition to Destiny. For reference, the three emotes that come with the Collector’s Edition of the game’s third expansion, The Taken King, are sold separately for $19.99.
Bungie said it will give players enough free Silver today to purchase one or two emotes.
The currency comes in addition to a slew of changes in Destiny’s latest patch 2.0.1, the first major one since the release of The Taken King.
