Ghosts are stalwart companions for Guardians fighting to protect humanity in Destiny 2. Ghosts direct Guardians on quests, impart useful information about the world, provide levity and companionship, and keep them alive. Now Destiny 2 players can have the same relationship with their own, personal Ghost in the real world.
The new Destiny 2 Ghost Skill uses the power of Alexa to enable Destiny 2 players to issue commands and ask questions aloud as if speaking to their own, real-life Ghost. Players can ask their Ghost which of their friends are online, receive advice on which game content to tackle next, or request details about game lore like, “Alexa, tell Ghost to tell me who are the Red Legion?”
The Destiny 2 Ghost Skill will also allow players to use voice commands to swap out pre-defined gear sets and make it easier to tailor loadouts for specific activities, like the Raid. With the new skill, changing your gear set can become as simple as saying “Alexa, tell Ghost to equip my Raid loadout.”
Nolan North, who provides the voice acting for the player’s Ghost in Destiny 2, also lends his voice to the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill app and has recorded new dialogue, which makes the experience even more authentic. The Destiny 2 Ghost Skill is available now for free to Amazon Alexa customers and requires an Alexa device*. If Destiny 2 players want to make the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill experience even more immersive, they can add the Limited Edition Destiny 2 Ghost, an Alexa-compatible WiFi-enabled speaker molded as a Ghost shell.
The Limited Edition Destiny 2 Ghost is available for pre-order at an SRP of $89.99, and is available for preorder now. The Limited Edition Destiny 2 Ghost is not needed to use the free Destiny 2 Ghost skill, but the game and an Alexa device are required.*
“Alexa, tell Ghost to call for back up,” because we’re heading back into the fray to try out this new Skill.
