"Peter Dinklage is the voice of the Ghost in this demo," Bungie community manager "DeeJ" told Sony in a new video interview. "As you learn more about Destiny, you just might be hearing more from him."

The Ghost character in Destiny is described as an "interactive companion" that players will take with them everywhere they go.

Dinklage is not the only celebrity working with Bungie on Destiny. The Beatles frontman Paul McCartney is collaborating with Bungie, writing music for the new game.

Bungie's Destiny launches next year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

"How can we take a genre we know and love so well, the first person shooter, and turn it on it's head again..and our answer is Destiny"-Jason Jones. Halo CE was great because it was the second successful shooter on any console after goldeneye..you could jump, reload whenever, only carry 2 weapons, characters moved their lips, true AI, true 3D, true invisibility, a variety of enemies, and a legendary story; what can Bungie do that'll be new and revolutionize the genre? Please tell me..

Hopefully they'll add a few subtle Game of Throne's references in his dialogue!

It sounds like Bill Nighy is the voice actor on the Exo "advisor/narrator" on the  gameplay video - talking to the human on the tower overlooking the city. Thoughts?

Man, Peter Dinklage has such a presence whenever he speaks. Couldn't have picked a better actor.

I don't know, the last time a good band wrote a song to a game was what, The Reaper?

- More cowbell! I need more cowbell!

If you don't understand the reference, and has more than 30, I don't respect you

@yixingtpot Wow dude. You're a piece of sh**. I hate you. BTW, it's DEFINITELY a plus for this game when it comes to sales. Because despite what you think, most people love this little dude.

@deltaalphagamma One less moron then. Dinklage is amazing, and you should feel ashamed of yourself for dissing him right now.

@Holy-Rapture I would have expected a shout out to the upcoming X-Men movie he'll have a big part in. Seriously, though... Elf? Give the man his proper dues!

@captainchoof It seems a bit too dark for his music in general. I want him to go back to Halo personally.
