In the Destiny series, your Ghost is the constant companion that helps guide you through the challenges you face. But now you can move that into the real world with the Destiny 2 Limited Edition Ghost and Skill for Amazon Alexa.
There are two parts to this. The first is the Limited Edition Destiny 2 Ghost Speaker. It’s being released on December 19th, 2017, and you’ll need an Amazon Alexa device already for it to work. Assuming you’ve got that, then you’ll be able to connect the wi-fi enabled Ghost speaker to Alexa, and use it for all the voice commands, including those in-game.
The actual game part uses the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill for Amazon Alexa, which is available free to everyone. This syncs up Destiny 2 and Alexa, so that you can use voice commands for your Ghost in the game. For example, you can say ‘Alexa, ask Ghost to equip my most powerful weapon’, or ‘Alexa, ask Ghost to tell me my next milestone’, rather than messing about with the in-game menu system. And there are more than 1000 custom voice lines for your Ghost to respond, as well as lighting up the built-in LEDs when it’s helping you out.
It’s perfect if you’re a big fan of Destiny 2 and really want to immerse yourself into the world Bungie has created. Or if you’re already using Amazon Alexa and fancy an unusual and game-related speaker rather than the standard Amazon Echo or Echo Dot for your gaming room. Particularly as the Dot has a fairly small built-in speaker.
The Destiny 2 Limited Edition Ghost and Skill for Amazon Alexa will work with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game. You’ll need a copy of the game, an Alexa-enabled device, the Alexa App, a Bungie.net account and the free download of the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill for it all to work, and then the Destiny 2 Limited Edition Ghost as the speaker.
Obviously it’ll also let you use all the other Amazon Alexa features, like listening to music, controlling any smart home appliances, finding information etc.
The Limited Edition Destiny 2 Ghost Speaker costs £79.99. Or you can buy it via Amazon with an Echo Dot in either Black or White for £129.98.
