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.

Original story:

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.
