Funny thing about Alpha builds … they’re not done. Please pardon our Moon dust!
Dinklage – best known these days as Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones – came under heavy fire for his voice acting performance as AI companion Ghost in the recent Destiny alpha test. Gamers criticised the wooden, “phoned-in” performance, with many calling it the absolute low-point of an otherwise stellar experience.
Bungie spokesperson Eric Osborne has confirmed that things will be different the next time we see the game.
Hey, we read the same forums … In fact, the Ghost dialog has already been updated for Beta. It will be updated again for launch on September 9th, as well.
We don’t know whether or not this move is a direct response to gamer feedback, at this stage. It’s also worth noting here that Bungie has not specified whether Dinklage has re-recorded his lines, or if the studio’s just polished up what we’ve already heard.
Destiny is headed to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 9. A beta test will kick off later this month.
