It’s out with Dinklebot and in with Nolandroid in the new Destiny patch.
One of the biggest changes in the Destiny 2.0 update that went out Tuesday is the replacement of Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage as a primary character. Dinklage played Ghost, the little floating robot who tells you what’s going on as you work through Destiny’s story.
As of this week (and in anticipation of next week’s The Taken King expansion), the ubiquitous (but probably much less expensive) voice actor Nolan North replaces Dinklage. North has appeared in tons of video games, most notably as Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series.
Polygon went ahead and made a quick video comparing both actors’ takes on Destiny lines. The biggest takeaway? Between the performances and Destiny’s goofy script, maybe it’s not the acting that’s the problem.
