PS4 cannot access Destiny after DLC pre-order countdown

We have just received word that some PS4 owners cannot access Destiny after purchasing the digital pre-order for the games first DLC, The Dark Below. They are met with a countdown timer when trying to load up the game after placing a pre-order, although it’s unclear if this is happening to everyone on PlayStation 4.

There’s a number of screenshots on Twitter, like the one below, and as you can see they are only for PS4 consoles at this time. The Destiny Dark Below DLC has a release date of December 9, which is tomorrow, so as you can see the countdown clock doesn’t have long left.


We are sure gamers would be frustrated if they were blocked from playing Destiny until the first DLC went live. With this in-mind, we’d love to hear from any Product Reviews readers that placed a digital pre-order for the first Destiny expansion on PS4.

Have you been blocked from playing Destiny after placing a PS4 digital pre-order? Do you see the countdown clock and if so, does it stop you from accessing the game? We have reached out to the developers for comment and are yet to see any official word on this problem.
