Gamers playing Destiny on Xbox platforms will be dealt a short hand when the game's first downloadable expansion, The Dark Below, releases next week.

Bungie and Sony have announced details around two pieces of timed-exclusive content coming to the PlayStation editions of The Dark Below. The first is a Strike on Mars called "The Undying Mind" and the second is an exotic shotgun called The 4th Horseman.

The content will be exclusive to PlayStation until "at least" late next year, said Sony.
