'Destiny 2' Ghost Skill Integrates Amazon Alexa Support Into Game

Amazon Alexa Now Works with a 'Destiny 2' Ghost Replica Speaker

While the device looks just like the in-game Ghost, you don't need it to use the Ghost skill, just an Alexa device.

Destiny 2 is now accepting voice commands thanks to a new game-specific skill for Amazon's Alexa smart home devices. It may not be as cool as directly speaking to your Ghost, but it's still pretty useful. Shouting voice commands at your little Alexa device will normally allow you to ask it to play music, order pizza, set up a timer, and other typical tasks.

The skill updates in real time so that it matches a player's status as he or she progresses through the game.

The kids had a blast, and it was a really sweet moment they got to share, despite all the craziness involved. But from what we can see, the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star looks like a total natural.

“Destiny 2 players being able to interact with a physical Ghost paired with an Amazon Alexa is just a really fun and unique idea, ” said Pete Parsons, CEO of Bungie. "We know a lot of our players use other platforms to manage their inventory", says Trombetta, the company's vice president of consumer marketing. They can have Alexa ask Ghost what friends are online, what their next milestone may be, or even equip raid loadouts.

The amount of "skills" that Alexa can produce through voice activation on a device is much more than that for Google Home - whether the skills already present within Alexa will all be available to Australians or whether they will be geoblocked remains to be soon. And if you'd like to blur the work-life balance a little more, you'll be able to access numerous same Alexa skills you use at home through Alexa for Business, he said. The Ghost pairs with your enabled Alexa device to talk directly to you via the integrated speaker, serving as your constant companion.

If the Ghost skill is not enough, Amazon is also releasing a Ghost replica speaker. The speaker adds an additional layer of authenticity to the experience. That's particularly important considering many skills have struggled with retaining users thus far.

Enable the Fridays skill by searching for the skill in the Alexa app or Alexa skills store and selecting the "Enable Skill" option. That's an improvement from the three percent second-week retention rate VoiceLabs reported in January, but is still a relatively small figure. "It allows you to dive deeper into the world of Destiny".
