Destiny 2 Players Can Now Get Help From Amazon's Alexa

Destiny 2 Players Can Now Get Help From Amazon's Alexa

Bungie and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. Alexa is no stranger in following voice commands, but its new feature will help "Destiny 2" players a lot.

By using an Alexa device, "Destiny 2" players can ask their Ghost to do a lot of things for them in-game, like giving a short background about the title's lore, sending messages to other players, and putting on their weapons and armors.

Amazon is even releasing a Limited Edition Ghost shaped Alexa speaker to make it even more realistic as if you're really talking to your Ghost from Destiny.

The aim of Alexa for Business from Amazon Web Services is to give every employee access to the smart digital assistant, and make their work days a little easier to organize.

As reported by Polygon, "Destiny 2" can now accept hands-free voice commands, made possible by the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. "Gaming is an example of where voice can create a more engaging experience in a natural and delightful way for customers". Specifically, the players can talk to their character's artificial intelligence (AI) in the game called Ghost with the help of Alexa.

"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.

Amazon has confirmed its smart voice assistant "Alexa" will land in Australia next year, which commentators tip will significantly impact rival Google Home, who is still yet to offer a diverse range of connected devices.

"Tens of millions of people already count on Alexa at home, in their cars, and on mobile devices to answer questions, provide news and information, and stay connected to friends and family", said Amazon's Peter Hill. The Ghost speaker will be available for $90 starting on December 19th. With our partners at Activision, it's been exciting to develop this project into a rich, useful skill worthy of Amazon's Alexa.
