Activision have announced quite possibly one of the best companions for a game. Ever. The new Amazon Alexa skill taps into Destiny 2 and lets you speak to Ghost, your character’s AI companion. You’ll be able to ask your Ghost for tips, as well as giving commands for things like “Alexa, ask Ghost who the Red Legion are” and Alexa will then explain who Destiny 2’s bad guys really are.
This will work through any Alexa-enabled device, like the range of Echo speakers. However Amazon is also selling a Ghost-shaped Wi-Fi speaker that you can speak to directly. The limited edition speaker will be sold from December 19, shaped to look and sound like the Ghost from Destiny 2.
This speaker isn’t needed for the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill, it costs £129.89 when pre-ordered with an Amazon Echo Dot, or £79.99 when purchased separately. The only necessary items are an Alexa-enabled device (likely the Amazon Echo or Amazon Echo Dot) and a copy of Destiny 2 on PS4, Xbox One or PC.
Let us know in the comments below if you would like to talk to a real life Ghost companion.
