Whether you’re a Destiny 2 veteran or someone new to the franchise, one thing that every player of the game should recognize is the game’s companion, a floating metal AI known as a Ghost. The quirky piece of intelligence is there to help you throughout all your adventures, and now Bungie and Activision have partnered with Amazon to provide one to players in real life.
Recently announced, Amazon has released a free Destiny 2 Ghost Skill for Alexa, allowing players to bark out orders to a Ghost in real life. According to Amazon, players can ask the Ghost-themed Alexa to equip load-outs, scout levels, and even join a clan in Destiny 2. If that’s enough, Amazon is also releasing an actual speaker that’s designed to look like a Ghost.
This speaker syncs with the Amazon Echo and essentially operates in the same, except it looks like an actual Ghost from the game. It features over a thousand custom responses from the Ghost, which will be voiced by seasoned voice actor Nolan North (who also provides the in-game Ghost voice). The speaker will run players $90 and is available for pre-order now, although the current product on Amazon is listed as a “limited edition,” whatever that means.
The Ghost speaker has a release date of December 19, just in time for the holidays. For a complete look at its features, check out below:
- With the Ghost you can use voice commands to equip loadouts, connect with friends, explore the universe and much more
- Integrated Wi-Fi connected device that pairs with your Alexa enabled device to bring the in-game Ghost character to life
