Activision is teaming up with Amazon for a pretty cool new Destiny 2 gadget. This $90 physical Ghost connects to Amazon’s Alexa device so you can talk to it to equip weapons and learn more about quests, among other things. It’s basically the game’s Ghost coming to life, which is cool and possibly a little unsettling at the same time.
For example, you can say, “Alexa, ask Ghost what I should do next” and it’ll tell you what to do. You can also say, “Alexa, ask Ghost to equip my most powerful weapon,” and then it will do that for you. There are apparently over 1,000 custom voice commands that are supported. Pretty neat. You can see a further rundown of what you can say to Alexa in the text below, which comes from the device’s Amazon product page (via RollingStone).
The Destiny 2 physical Ghost is compatible with all version of the game (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC), and apparently releases in December. Go to the device’s product page on Amazon to learn more and order one for yourself, if it sounds good to you.
In other Destiny news, Bungie today admitted that it “betrayed” players by failing to disclose certain elements about XP and levelling in Destiny 2. Additionally, the developer outlined some of the changes coming to Destiny in December including a new Masterworks weapon class.
