Destiny Ghost
Destiny's Ghost aids the player throughout the gameActivision

One of the more headline-grabbing changes introduced by Destiny's 2.0 patch and next week's The Taken King expansion is the replacement of Peter Dinklage's performance as robot companion Ghost with that of famed video game voice actor Nolan North.

North – who has dozens of video game roles under his belt but is best known for portraying Uncharted hero Nathan Drake – has taken over, recording every line old and new for patch 2.0, which was released on 8 September.

Polygon has created a comparison video showing off both performances, giving fans a good chance to compare and contrast. You can take a look at the video below...

Dinklage's performance has been a unique oddity in gaming ever since he uttered the since-cut words "That Wizard came from the moon" in last year's pre-release Destiny beta. The delivery of his lines as the objective-dishing robot has its champions and its critics, but he has now been scrapped entirely.

Having heard the two performances side-by-side, there's a clear change in intonation but scarcely a difference between them in terms of quality. Take that for what you will. The real take away from this is how awful the dialogue is. Marlon Brando couldn't make it work.

Destiny: The Taken King is the biggest expansion to date for Bungie's online shooter, and was preceded this week by the biggest patch to date. Both are bringing in a raft a big changes to the hugely successful PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 game.

The Taken King will be released on 15 September.
