Bungie just revealed details about the upcoming Destiny 2 Season of the Deep, which will include a ton of new in-game events, fishing (yes, you can fish in Destiny 2), and a PlayStation crossover featuring Sony games. inspired armor ornament sets. The crossover content is part of a “[celebration of] its partnership with PlayStation,” reads the blog post announcing it and showcasing the Season of the Deep launch trailer.

The armor ornament sets are “inspired by three of the greatest games in PlayStation history”: a Titan ornament set called Godsbane based on God of War, a Hunter set called Annointed for Horizon Forbidden West, and a Warlock set from Ghost of Tsushima called Ancestral. Each set also gets its own special finishing move.

Armor ornaments are unlockable as part of Destiny’s seasonal passes and can be equipped for each individual piece of armor they match. Once you equip them, they completely change the look of the armor and not just the color like a shader would. “The first [concern] is the more direct reimagining of costume details, items, and weapons,” said Bungie Art Lead Josh Deeb in the blog post. “Then there are the less tangible aspects – her personality and presence. In other words, do these ornaments feel like these characters?”

Destiny 2 also gets an emote based on Ratchet and Clank, along with a line of vehicles inspired by The Last of Us and a Ghost Shell that looks like your Warden’s gear is infected with Cordyceps. If you’re looking to spread this fungus among us, you might want to grab one of these articles. “We know that the environments in games become as much a part of the story as the characters and players within them,” Deeb said. “We wanted to take advantage of the mutant fungus’s impressive infected imagery and make it invade our world.”

Sony may have bought Bungie over a year ago, but so far these cosmetic items are the only tangible result of the purchase. There may be more to come, but for now, let’s hope your chosen Destiny class has an armor set that you’re happy with. Destiny 2 Season of the Deep kicked off Tuesday, May 23rd and will run through August 22nd.
