“Destiny 2 #Exotic social #Ghost to be used in helping players with in-game social recruiting for PvE and PvP.,” released last September, has proven to be even more popular than the original game with over 1.2 million people playing the game at the same time shortly after its release, according to Vox. With an engaging story and addictive gameplay, it’s hard to imagine why “Destiny” wouldn’t be as popular as it is. However, that hasn’t stopped players from wishing for various improvements to the game already. One such improvement was proposed by Reddit user cirquemedia. Cirquemedia has designed an
The need for a social ghost
The reason for cirquemedia’s new ghost design, and why it’s being called a social ghost, is severe lack of social media capabilities within the game currently.
Cirquemedia believes the ghost is highly underutilized and they just may be right.
There isn’t much in the way of specifically requesting to form a fire team for certain things within the game. Currently, if a player wishes to conduct social recruiting they need to do so on destinylfg.com. This, however, doesn’t help those who wish to find a quick team in game to form. That’s where the new exotic social ghost concept comes into play.
Exotic social ghost concept
The social ghost, designed by cirquemedia, comes with upgraded networking and social interface inspired by the traveler. The ghost would have the ability to display if a player is searching for a raid team, trials, crucible, or just farming glimmer. According to chrisdarmon.com, the ghost would feature active signals which would alert nearby guardians to what a player is looking for.
The ghost would also feature enhanced public event details, allowing players to know how many daily challenges they’ve completed and form a team to assist with the public event.
The design of this new ghost is starkly different than that of the current ghost design.
This new social ghost is truly inspired and powered by light from the traveler. More spherical than before, and mirroring the look of the traveler, this ghost is an exceptional product of dedication, hard work, and love for the game.
Unfortunately, the social ghost is not a real option within the game, however, one can hope that someday Bungie will take note of individuals like cirquemedia, who provide fantastic quality concepts for the game, and begin to realize the potential of their own product.
