Amazon recently launched a special "Ghost skill" for Alexa, allowing Destiny 2 players to do things like automatically equip loadouts or connect with friends with Echo voice commands. But Amazon is also going all-in with a limited edition physical Destiny 2 Ghost so you can bring your in-game partner to life.
Up for preorder at $89.99, the Ghost is a functional replica of an in-game Ghost, allowing you to speak to it and make commands just as you would with your Echo. The only catch is that the Ghost itself doesn't have Alexa built in. Rather, it uses Wi-Fi to connect to an Alexa-enabled device you already own, meaning you'll already need to have an Echo device or something else with Alexa built-in. Here's a full look at the Ghost's features, from Amazon:
- 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
- The Destiny 2 Ghost responds exclusively to the Official Destiny 2 Ghost Skill by Bungie and Activision
- Built-in LED activates on Ghost's responses
- The Destiny 2 Ghost is not required to enable and use the Destiny 2 Ghost Skill
- The Destiny 2 Ghost works with PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC devices
If you're a big Destiny fan, it's certainly a novel way to add more flavor to your gameplay. Of course, you could also just use the Ghost skill with your standard Echo — but where's the fun in that?
The limited edition Destiny 2 Ghost is available for preorder now at $89.99 and will be released on December 19.
