It has come as no surprise just how much Amazon‘s Alexa can do. Alexa can turn on your favorite shows with the right phrase, gather information based on your queries, purchase items at your behest, and even dim the lights in your home. Now, it’s about to become your Guardians best friend!
Bungie and Activision have teamed up with Amazon to include everyone’s favorite Ghost into Alexa’s skill set. By simply saying, “Alexa, ask Ghost to…” Nolan North’s voice will appear and be able to help you with whatever you need like changing out gear, recommending missions, get in touch with your clanmates, etc. What makes it even better is that it’s completely free. All you have to do to access it is to have the game and to unlock it on the Alexa app.
”The Ghost serves as your guide and companion in Destiny 2 the game, and now players will be able to bring that experience into the real world with them through Alexa,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision. “The Destiny 2 Ghost skill is the first of its kind and the most innovative and immersive gaming experience to date on Alexa. We’re excited to give our community of players, who are among the most-dedicated fans in the world, new ways to play Destiny 2 with the Ghost skill and Limited-Edition Destiny 2 Ghost. The lines between in-game and out-of-game have been blurred in an incredible new way.”
Revealed on stage by Tom Taylor, Senior Vice President, Amazon Alexa, and Byron Beede, Activision’s Senior Vice President of Product Management for Destiny, at the AWS re:Invent 2017 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, the team also announced a limited-edition Destiny 2 Ghost wi-fi speaker (pictured) that is compatible with Alexa. For just $89.99 you can own this sweet-looking ghost to help you on your journey to save the Traveler and mankind. However, it’s not needed to use the Ghost skill on Alexa, it’s just a cool addition.
That limited-edition Ghost will be available on December 19, 2017, making it a hot Christmas gift!
