It’s hard to think of a music group that deserves more vacation time than BTS, who have spent the past few years churning out hit singles, performing high-intensity live shows, and developing fan experience projects. nonstop. And luckily for them, they now have one…virtually, at least.

As announced in April, a new video game based on the seven hardworking guys behind the world’s biggest boy band – Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jung Kook – has arrived. Title BTS Island: In the SEOMit is described as themed around the guys’ quest for fun and relaxation after they mysteriously arrive on an empty island called Seom.

The game very aptly follows the band’s statement on June 14 that they would be temporarily stepping down from their work as a band. Although Jung Kook later clarified that BTS is not disbanding and will still be active as a team for certain things (video games, for example), the group plans to take more time to work on solo projects. And if they’re as lucky as their animated video game characters, they’ll each have a chance to finally enjoy some rest and relaxation.

The new game came after the band’s new album Evidence, which was released earlier in June and served as a three-disc compilation album of earlier work. It also featured a handful of new tracks, including “Yet to Come” – a song that recently turned out to be part of the BTS Island universe.

Rugby-Boks change backline for first Test against Wales https://dhinc.org/rugby-boks-change-backline-for-first-test-against-wales/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 10:51:02 +0000 https://dhinc.org/rugby-boks-change-backline-for-first-test-against-wales/

Elton Jantjies will start at fly-half and the electric Damian Willemse at full back when South Africa take on Wales in the first game of a three home Test series at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday. Jantjies was preferred to regular starter Handre Pollard, who contested the French Top 14 final victory for Montpellier on Friday, while Willemse is chosen ahead of the much more experienced Willie le Roux.

It suggests the Boks could be looking to run with the ball in hand and move away slightly from their reliance on a kicking game, looking instead to wear down the Welsh at altitude before unleashing their powerful forwards from the bench. The rest of the back line looks familiar with wings Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe, centers Lukhanyo Am and Damian de Allende, and scrum-half Faf de Klerk, who offers a kick option from the base of the ruck .

The front row consists of props Frans Malherbe and Ox Nche, hooker Bongi Mbonambi, lock duo Eben Etzebeth and Lood de Jager, and the back three of captain Siya Kolisi, Franco Mostert and Jasper Wiese. “We have the advantage of having several fairly versatile players, so a guy like Damian Willemse can cover the fly-half and the cross in addition to the back, while Kwagga (Smith) covers each of the loose forward positions and can even fit on the wing with his Blitzbok (Sevens) experience,” head coach Jacques Nienaber said in a South African Rugby press release.

Uncapped lock Salmaan Moerat and loose striker Elrigh Louw have been named among the substitutes and will almost certainly get a run as the Boks use their 6-2 split off the bench in the second half to add fresh muscle to the squad. “We have a fantastic generation of young players who have really worked hard to train and get their hands dirty, and it’s a pleasure for us as coaches to give Salmaan and Elrigh this opportunity.” , said Nienaber.

“We have a plan for the season in terms of giving some of the young players a chance to show what they can do at international level, while taking stock of the seasoned campaigners and where they are in terms of rugby. The second and third Tests will be played in Bloemfontein and Cape Town respectively over the following two Saturdays. Wales have lost their previous 10 matches in South Africa.

South Africa squad: 15 – Damian Willemse

14 – Cheslin Kolbe 13 – Lukhanyo Am

12 – Damian de Allende 11 – Makazole Mapimpi

10 – Elton Jantjies 9 – Faf de Klerk

8 – Jasper Wiese 7 – Franco Mostert

John Wall set to join LA Clippers after completing Houston Rockets buyout, sources say https://dhinc.org/john-wall-set-to-join-la-clippers-after-completing-houston-rockets-buyout-sources-say/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 02:26:08 +0000 https://dhinc.org/john-wall-set-to-join-la-clippers-after-completing-houston-rockets-buyout-sources-say/

After agreeing to a buyout with the Houston Rockets, keeps John Wall plans to sign a free agent contract with the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN on Monday.

Wall, who owed the Rockets $47.4 million after exercising the player option for the final year of his contract, agreed to take $6.5 million less to become a free agent, a source told ESPN. That’s roughly the amount of the mid-level taxpayer exception Wall could receive once he’s able to negotiate a deal with the Clippers.

The Rockets wanted to reach an agreement with Wall before free agency began Thursday to maximize his options in selecting his next team, sources said.

The Rockets and Wall, 31, made a mutual decision for the veteran guard not to play last season with Houston in the early stages of a rebuild. The Rockets instead prioritized the development of young guards Kevin Porter Jr. and jalen greenso Wall didn’t fit the franchise’s plans despite his $44.3 million salary.

Wall averaged 20.6 points and 6.9 assists in 40 games with the Rockets in 2020-21, proving he can still perform at a high level after missing the previous season and a half due to a heel surgery and a torn Achilles tendon. He spent part of last season with the Rockets, participating in practices and sitting on the bench during games, and practiced alone in Miami the rest of the time.

Wall was traded to Houston along with a future first-round pick for Russell Westbrook in December 2020 after spending the first 11 years of his career with the Washington Wizards, who selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft. The Rockets considered themselves contenders at the time, but the franchise changed direction dramatically when former MVP James Harden forced a trade at the start of the 2020-21 season.

Wall, who has career averages of 19.1 points and 9.1 assists, would fill the Clippers’ need for a playmaker on a team that aspires to the championship, with Kawhi Leonard back after missing the 2021-22 season while recovering from a partial ACL tear in his right knee. Reggie Jackson averaged 16.8 points and 4.8 assists as Los Angeles’ starting point guard last season, when the Clippers went 42-40 and were eliminated in a playoff.

‘Westworld’ Co-Creator Lisa Joy Talks New Evan Rachel Wood in Season 4 – Deadline https://dhinc.org/westworld-co-creator-lisa-joy-talks-new-evan-rachel-wood-in-season-4-deadline/ Mon, 27 Jun 2022 02:00:00 +0000 https://dhinc.org/westworld-co-creator-lisa-joy-talks-new-evan-rachel-wood-in-season-4-deadline/

Warning: This interview contains spoilers from HBO. Westworld episode 401 “The Augurs”.

It’s a brand new Westworld, and, man, does it seem peaceful since Maeve and Caleb released the predictive AI computer Rehoboam last season. Dolores even helped, sacrificing her life.

So, let’s let everyone know what happened tonight:

HBO

The Man in Black by Ed Harris aka William walks around like he has his own mind and a lot of power. But, remember, Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) killed what appeared to be a human version of him in the Season 3 finale and sent a host of guys out into the world. The MIB wants to buy a dam from a drug cartel. He makes them an offer they can’t refuse, yet they first refuse: Sell it today, “or you’ll give it to me for nothing tomorrow,” MIB tells Arturo Del Puerto’s cartel guy . “What I want is already in there. It was stolen from one of my facilities eight years ago, and I know you were paid handsomely to store it,” MIB told him, “I can’t encrypt it. I don’t want him moved or disturbed, so I’ll take the whole shebang.

Later, Del Puerto’s character, who refused to sell the dam, is swarmed by flies in his room and knocked unconscious. The next day, he wakes up and tells his boss (Alex Fernandez) and his buddies about MIB’s offer. They laugh. Del Puerto’s character pulls out a knife and kills them. He then meets MIB on the dam bridge, and agrees to sell him the book. “Is my job done?” he asks. “Yeah, you can rest now,” MIB replies before the guy slits his throat.

Westworld Season 4 Evan Rachel Wood

HBO

There’s Dolores… but it’s not Dolores. Rather, Christina, performed by Evan Rachel Wood. She’s a love-loving, hard-working single girl from the city, who works in a fancy office where she writes 3D game stories for people. She lives with a roommate, played by Oscar-winning actress Ariana DeBose, who continues to encourage Christina to go out and date her. However, the stories that Christina writes seem to have an impact on mainstream outside audiences, and not in a good way. She wants to write more romantic plots for young teenagers, i.e. a teenager living with her father in the countryside (it sounds a lot like the story of Dolores in the western; “Scratch that”, says Christina) . However, her boss doesn’t want her sweet stories, but rather sex, violence and tragedy. Meanwhile, Christina receives disturbing phone calls from a guy who claims his scheming forced him to lose his job and his wife. He blames the tower, which is presumably the building she works in. We later learn that this guy’s name is Peter. He goes to assault Christina after a date, cutting her with a knife before being overpowered by a mysterious guy on the street. At the end of the episode, we learn that it was James Marsden who protected Christina. In previous seasons, Marsden played cowboy Teddy Flood, a host who always had a crush on Dolores at the Delos Westworld theme park. The next day, after meeting Christina, Peter phones her and says, “It’s just up to me, or did you write that too?” before jumping off a building to his death in front of her.

Westworld season 3

HBO

Maeva (Thandiwe Newton) lives in the woods, hiding in a cabin after winning the revolution at the end of season 3. But she learns that hosts are coming for her. She pulls them out, cutting off one of their heads. She plugs into it and learns that MIB/William is behind it all. It is time for her to return to the world.

HBO

Caleb (Aaron Paul). Although he helped Maeve win the war, he’s back in the build, but not alongside a robot like last season, but a real human. Robots, we learn, are just junk now. “Has your life changed since they destroyed those machines?” asks Caleb’s colleague. Caleb has a daughter, but he teaches her how to shoot a gun (similar to a BB gun). “Thanks to you, his hobbies are sugar and violence,” Caleb’s wife says of their daughter. Later, an attacker approaches Caleb’s daughter at night. However, the intruder is immediately gutted by Maeve’s samurai sword. “I know who sent these men after us: William. He’s back,” Maeve tells Caleb. She also knows that MIB met a California senator and she wants to find him. Caleb is totally in for it and tells his beloved, who is losing patience with his shenanigans, “I’m the one who brought this to us, and I’m the one who has to end it.”

Here is our conversation with Westworld co-creator, EP and scribe Lisa Joy to explain everything:

Lisa Joy Westworld

Lisa Joy
PA

DEADLINE: How many years after the revolution is this? Is it right after?

Lisa Joy: It’s been over seven years since we’ve seen our characters. There is no more fighting. It’s finish. We skipped the big fight and now we see the aftermath of the fight.

DEADLINE: The Season 4 setup looks like hosts against hosts. You have Charlotte and you know she’s not human, and then you have William who isn’t; he runs the roost. Maeve hides in a cabin, and she gets mugged by security guards who are hosts and she can hack into their brains. So, there seems to be this divide between the hosts.

Lisa Joy: Right. It looks a bit like it. It seems that after Dolores died over seven years ago, she somehow bought freedom for humans from this massive AI, and they somehow became suspicious of general AI. You can see it with Caleb where he refused to work with a robot, and now he’s working with a human, but that doesn’t mean the AI ​​is gone. The remaining hosts clearly did different things. In Maeve’s case, she got it Eat Pray Love Alone time in Alaska, but maybe some of our hosts have teamed up on more infamous shenanigans. I think the question that will emerge this season is after a period of turmoil, once you’ve kind of gained that relaxation, that peace, can it stay, or humans and their sort of heirs in the form of these hosts somehow predestined to always fall into these loops of fracking, fighting, and dividing?

DEADLINE: So with Rehoboam gone and the AI ​​not gone, we’re talking about this tower. Is this the company Evan Rachel Wood’s character works for?

Lisa Joy: I have no idea.

DEADLINE: Okay, but the tower seems to be this new AI because the characters keep saying “the tower makes me do these things”.

Lisa Joy: It just sounds like madness to me.

DEADLINE: Season 3 felt like a reboot in some form. Is season 4 too?

Lisa Joy: I mean, I think we’ve always seen this story unfold in these single chapters, and almost in some ways different genres each season. Like, there’s everything from the character trajectories to the worlds we explore to the moments we explore. We have sought to continue to evolve. So I don’t know if reboot is the right word but you know we’re dealing with the AI ​​and a review of the long range kind of history because of course the AI ​​doesn’t have the same lifespan as humans. So it makes sense to me not to have to do things totally linear in terms of direct take or something like that. And for me, war is brutal, terrible and devastating for all parties. Every war is the result of massive failure on everyone’s part. Besides death and devastation, what really interests me is not war itself because it’s so basic and so sad, but the consequences of war: how humans live with the scars of war , how civilizations recover or reorient themselves, how culture changes. From time to time, people are faced with these kinds of forces of generational change. I think we just went through one ourselves and the question is, well, what’s the next step in human evolution?

DEADLINE: Is this the last season, or does your team see two more seasons, or is it kind of a wait?

Lisa Joy: No. You never want to tempt the TV gods, but (Westworld co-creator) Jonah (Nolan) and I have always had an end in mind that we hope to achieve. We haven’t quite reached it yet.

DEADLINE: And then Dolores. She was eliminated from Rehoboam…

Lisa Joy: Yeah. She is dead.

Westworld

HBO

DEADLINE: It’s Westworld – people can be restarted. There is always a backup. Do we know how she got from the end of Season 3 to now, or will we find out?

Lisa Joy: I mean, she didn’t. Dolores is absolutely dead. Her sacrifice was significant in that it helped bring the world to this place, but it was a sacrifice in that there are no more Dolores. I’m not sure I’d call it a release, but you know, there’s this new character, Christina. We’re just in the game with her as she experiences the city, dates, writes. It’s really nice to be able to not speak entirely in metaphor, to be able to do something contemporary and human, to write roommates, banter, and bad dates. I haven’t been able to do it yet. It’s always been a period piece in Westworld. I wanted a really good actor to play this girl, Christina, and I hope people wouldn’t notice because I changed her hair color, but we just cast Evan again. I think the hair color will fool them. They probably won’t recognize her.

DEADLINE: William feels so alive. We think he is dead, but we have the impression that he is not dead. From his maneuvers, he doesn’t feel like a programmed robot.

Lisa Joy: Unfortunately, he’s what you’ve been watching – the thing William least wanted to be, which was a host. And not only that, but it’s a host on a channel. It’s Hale… you know.

Tanjea, the first free mobile P2E game is about to be launched https://dhinc.org/tanjea-the-first-free-mobile-p2e-game-is-about-to-be-launched/ Sun, 26 Jun 2022 08:15:19 +0000 https://dhinc.org/tanjea-the-first-free-mobile-p2e-game-is-about-to-be-launched/

The new P2E game Tanjea is about to launch on the Ethereum blockchain. This RPG has many features that make the game not only fun but also profitable.

P2E games on the blockchain are becoming more and more popular due to the transparency of the blockchain and many attributes that allow players to earn solid rewards for time spent in the game. This is why most P2E games require an initial investment (for example, to buy a character or land). Tanjea does not require any initial investment or blockchain experience. Each new player receives their first character simply by creating their profile.

As in other blockchain-based games, Tanjea players can earn money by completing in-game objectives. They can use NFTs, in-game currencies, as well as “rental” and “staking” features. “. Currently hosted on Ethereum, the Tanjea mobile gaming ecosystem allows players to play and win for free. Gamers earn an ERC20 cryptocurrency called $TNJ to play mobile games they already love.

An RPG game at its core, Tanjea allows players to traverse many regions with incredibly unique topographies. Throughout these diverse lands, players will encounter mythical beasts known as Jeas. By planting Jea Baits, players can capture Jea NFTs that will help them complete tasks in the Tanjeaverse to earn $TNJ Tokens. Tanjea players are gradually building up a Jea NFT collection that they can use to complete more daily tasks through mini-games and PVP battles. $TNJ token payouts are based on daily leaderboards, so everyone has the opportunity to earn their share, alone or with teams of friends. Players are incentivized to maximize their $TNJ earnings, which gives them the potential to become the ruler of one of Tanjea’s kingdoms.

The game has unique features due to the symbiotic relationship between mini-games and full battle modes. Players use their Jea NFTs to participate in mini-games similar to mobile classics like Flappy Bird, Candy Crush, Subway Surfers, and more. In this mode, players obtain and train new Jeas for the full battle mode. In the full battle mode that is currently in development, players form teams of their trained Jeas to fight for resource nodes on game lands in this P2E gaming metaverse. Landowners lure players to their land to compete and share resources and $TNJ rewards. Land options are plentiful, and even more are yet to be discovered on Tanjea. Players gradually build up a Jea NFT collection that they can use to complete more daily tasks through mini-games and PVP battles.

Winning real money while having fun is one of the main reasons why play-to-earn games are becoming extremely popular.

With its native $TNJ ERC20 token and the ability to create a collection of Jea NFTs, Tanjea takes blockchain gaming to new heights. Fascinating games will be added to populate the new Tanjeaverse. Stay tuned for more details, see how it’s being developed, and follow us on:

Bored Ape and CryptoPunk NFT ‘are not works of art’: Collector and creator Derrick Li on the distinctions between digital art and collectibles https://dhinc.org/bored-ape-and-cryptopunk-nft-are-not-works-of-art-collector-and-creator-derrick-li-on-the-distinctions-between-digital-art-and-collectibles/ Fri, 24 Jun 2022 23:43:08 +0000 https://dhinc.org/bored-ape-and-cryptopunk-nft-are-not-works-of-art-collector-and-creator-derrick-li-on-the-distinctions-between-digital-art-and-collectibles/

Collector and NFT enthusiast Derrick Li discovered the digital art form like many of us have – thanks to the $69 million sale of Beeple’s 5,000 days at Christie’s in March 2021. But that’s where all the similarities to those who jumped on the NFT bandwagon end.

Rather than looking for get-rich-quick buys, Li began reaching out to the NFT creators he most admired. He also founded Triple X, an organization focused on curating collections of NFTs by artists (not illustrators – more on that below) and bridging the knowledge gap between mainstream art collectors. and artists working in the digital realm.

Earlier this week, Li announced that Triple X would be releasing a new curated NFT collection, “On Sparks and Souls,” featuring digital works by artists including Jia Aili, who is represented by Gagosian.

Recently, we caught up with Li to discuss the volatility of the NFT market, what sets NFT art apart from digital collectibles, and more.

Derrick Li, founder of Triple X.

Can you tell me about yourself and how you got into the NFT space?
I’m Derrick Li, aka Tung or Triple X or X as some artists call me. My family calls me DongDong. People say I have so many names that they hear a new one every time they meet someone who knows me. These “multiple identities” make me feel good because I don’t want to be defined, and it kind of frees me up in the NFT space; like, that’s all me, but depends on your point of view.

I founded Triple X early last year and have been collecting, curating and building NFTs since shortly after Beeple’s auction at Christie’s. I started researching them and realized their potential, use cases and benefits for artists and all users.

There are several factors that attracted me. First of all, I knew I was still early to join this market, so that would be a big advantage – the earlier you are and the harder you are willing to work, the better luck you will have. Second, NFTs have the potential to do so many great things and contribute so much to artists. Finally, I wanted to help artists do great new things.

In your own words, how would you describe Triple X? What would you say you see as part of its evolving role in the NFT space?
From now on, Triple X is me, but I hope it becomes an organization open to supporting opportunities and ideas in digital art that innovate and inspire. My goal with Triple X is to uplift people, especially artists, and make the world a better place. Triple X represents sparks and souls, inspirations and goals, perceptions and understandings. We want people to come together with good hearts and good intentions to create long-term value in the NFT space in interesting ways.

Part of that means bringing more experienced traditional collectors and the general public into the field and helping to build a fundamental and illuminating understanding of what’s happening in the digital realm. From there, Triple X will be able to provide high quality works to collectors and art lovers. I care a lot about the public, the real art lovers.

Classic becomes classic for a reason, and I don’t want Triple X to be seen or associated with the hype. I want it to build a culture, and also have a culture inside, with like-minded people.

There are many dimensions to your business in the NFT world, particularly a curatorial or almost gallery-like verification process that takes NFT collecting into more familiar territory for art lovers. Earlier this week, you announced that you would be dropping a new collection of NFTs from artists including Jia Garlic, represented by Gagosian. Who are the NFT artists included in the collection? How did you come into contact with each of them?

This collection features amazing digital artists like Raoul Marks, David Ariew, and Ryan Hawthorne, and of course, the main character of the collection is Jia Aili. I have two other digital artists working on a piece behind the scenes, but I don’t want to reveal their identities yet. It’s more interesting to keep it mysterious, but based on the quality of the works we’ve produced so far, people can trust me that secrets are also some of the most artistic digital artists in the NFT space.

I also collect NFTs and love reaching out to the masterminds behind these amazing digital artworks. Fortunately, many of these artists responded – at this time, NFT artists were more willing to connect with collectors. Too many ghost accounts are DMing you these days (whether you’re an artist, collector, or builder, it doesn’t matter) and most people wouldn’t even bother to go and check the DM request anymore.

Artist David Ariew also helped me get in touch with many other artists, including Raoul Marks, who is up for sale. David has always been this super helpful and kind person.

Would you say that there is a common thread between theartists with whom you have chosen to work?
Yes definitely! This current collection is called “On Sparks and Souls”, and one of its main intentions is to show the artistic essence of these NFTs and raise the bar of artistic conversation around them. I asked these NFT artists to create works that respond in some way to Jia Aili’s paintings. They could explore ways to understand the paintings, have conversations with them, and combine elements of his works with theirs in refreshing ways, while staying close to his roots. The overriding common thread between these artists, including Aili, is the vibration they have with the essence of art, where true creativity comes from.

So the NFTs in the exhibition are directly inspired by 2D paintings? Why did you choose to pursue this path of building an NFT collection?

Yes. All digital works are inspired by and based on at least one painting by Jia Aili, chosen by each artist in the collection. The final digital artworks are blends of Aili’s visions, art philosophy and artistic input from him directly, as well as personal input, mediums, styles, interpretations and ” signatures” of each artist, which are then minted as NFTs. Through this process, the meaning of the symbols in the original paintings was expanded.

Since the original paintings played a big part in this collection, I plan to plan and organize an exhibition next year that will put these paintings in conversation with the digital artworks – although there are lots of steps, including loans from collectors, to make this possible. The paintings already have homes, but that would be a great conversation between the works.

There is a lot of volatility in the NFT space right now. What do you think of that?
This is the consequence of relentless speculation in the NFT space, which has just collapsed in the crypto crash. Am I worried about the market? No. Am I worried about people? Yes. We need more information and proper education in this space.

The market was so unstable because some people were playing this gambling game, trying to speculate on certain artists’ markets, and then they became the “influencers” to tell people what’s good and what’s not, who should look for and buy in , rather than actual knowledge of the work. NFTs were being sold at prices that made no sense given their real, real demand and artistic values.

There is no liquidity flowing in the space at the moment, so most NFTs become dead assets. The so-called “whale collectors” have to bear a huge responsibility for the current state of space.

Many people have been very impatient; people only have short-term visions and mindsets when they are in this space. Few people have long-term visions or are ready to start building a healthy infrastructure for this market and its reputation. I’m so critical of this because I want the NFT space to have longevity.

Can you tell us about the difference between digital collectibles and NFTs? What are the main distinctions and how do you think these differences will be clarified in the future?

Digital collectible projects are made by teams of developers rather than artists. Often these teams hire an illustrator to create the visual design for their product, but does that count as artwork? My answer may sound controversial, but I say no. Not all creations are works of art. All illustrations are not works of art.

I think it’s extremely important to differentiate digital collectibles that are NFTs from digital works of art that are minted as NFTs. People shouldn’t try to find artistic values ​​or the essence of art in digital collectibles, it’s like expecting lychee to fall from an apple tree.

Of course, many people looking for artwork are confused when they see the successful collectible projects such as Bored Ape Yacht Club and CryptoPunks and wonder why such “bad art” has sold for so much. They are not works of art; they are digital collectibles that can offer utilities. The line has to be drawn here, clearly. Then people can start to identify works of art and talk about things with the right definitions and expectations.

It’s an impressive feat to not only overcome the terrors of nature, but to conquer and use nature as an ally. Truly, nothing can be greater than being one with our furry beastly friends, especially if they have the acid spit of a Skag, the robotic claws of a Brillhawk, or the mighty claws of a bear. .

Many characters have become one with nature, and the animals have been tamed voluntarily, or not so much. Beastmasters are video game characters who use creatures to fight other creatures or other humans, and video games have no shortage of this type of character.

ten The Tarnished – Elden Ring

The Ternished is the player-created protagonist of Ring of Elden. These characters are individual beings who lost the Grace of the Erdtree and were banished from the Lands Between by Queen Marika the Eternal. With the Elden Ring broken, the Ternis were invited back.

These allies can be found all over the map and include many beasts and creatures, such as bears and jellyfish.

9 Takkar – Far Cry Primal

Takkar became the last survivor of his hunting party and soon discovered that to survive Oros he needed to hone his beastbending abilities, defeat those who threatened his existence, and lead his tribe to victory.

Takkar is a great character, with many skills and abilities to boast of. His Beastmaster skills grow over time, with the player’s help of course. This makes Takkar a great Far cry protagonist and a grand master of beasts. Controlling saber-toothed tigers has never been so cool.

8 The Looper – Fortnite

Wildlife in Fortnite lately abounded with wild boars and wolves. In Chapter 2, Season 6, these animals could be tamed as long as they were bribed with fresh fruits, vegetables, or meat. As of Chapter 3, Season 3, players can now jump on the backs of their bestial friends and make them allies in war and a loyal steed to ride with in battle.

Fortnite is no stranger to bizarre concepts. Part of what keeps the game so fresh is its ability to evolve and change formats each season. Being able to tame animals is just the latest and greatest of what Fortnite has to offer. Who doesn’t want to see Batman riding a wolf?

seven Rexxar – The Warcraft Series

Considered the Champion of the Horde, Rexxar is a half-ogre, half-orc beastmaster of Clan Mok’Nathal. He is an imposing and muscular warrior with two large axes. His skill and ferocity make him a character players wouldn’t want to mess with. It’s always nice to see this character paired with his faithful and faithful companion, the bear called Misha.

What makes Rexxar a great beastmaster is not just his ability to tame the most dangerous beasts like bears, but the fact that he is such a cunning and capable warrior without them. Rexxar has a long history in the Warcraftfranchise.

6 Karroch – Dota 2

All of Karroch’s character in Dota 2 revolves around his abilities as a beast master. Karroch can summon beasts to aid him in his hunt and learned this ability from an early age in the royal menagerie of Slom. Karroch has an impressive list of beasts to use in battle.

From poison spitting boar to scout falcon. These talented beasts are great allies of Karroch and his skills in Dot 2. Not only can Karroch rely on his beastmaster skills, but he can also use his wild axes in battle, as well as his piercing primal roar.


5 Yuna – Final Fantasy 10

Yuna is a playable protagonist introduced in Final Fantasy X and the central protagonist of Final Fantasy X-2. This character follows his father’s abilities and becomes a summoner. Part of her summoner abilities involves summoning Aeon.

Aeon is the summoned beast in the Final Fantasy series. Aeons can be obtained through the story and by completing the Cloisters of Trials in the Temples of Spira. These Aeons can be directly controlled once summoned, making them an effective Beastmaster since Yuna can control their every move.

4 Captain Olimar – Pikmin

Perhaps the least terrifying Beastmaster entry, Captain Olimar is certainly no joke. Olimar is the protagonist of the pikmine series and hails from the planet Hocotate. While on a mission for his employers, Hocotate Freight, Olimar discovers PNF-404 and an abundance of weird and colorful Pikmin.

Olimar discovered that Red Pikmin could spawn more Pikmin with his help. Olimar used the Pikmin to help him repair his ship, and along the way discovered that the Pikmin loyally followed him. Whether to transport parts of his ship or to help him in battle. They may not be scary beasts, but that doesn’t preclude their usefulness.


3 FL4K – Borderlands 3

With the last entry in the main line of the Borderlands series, Borderlands 3 introduced players to FL4K, whose specialty class was as a Beastmaster. FL4K was a robot who gained self-awareness and a desire to kill. What made FL4K this way is one of Borderlands’ lots of mystery, but some of the charm, just like Tiny Tina’s explosive personality.

However, what FL4K has, besides great sense and a desire to kill, is fellowship and understanding with animals. FL4K always has a pet on hand and can command it to do whatever it wants. FL4K is a fun character that can have a Jabber, Spiderant, Skag, or ION Loader.


2 Aloy – Horizon: Zero Dawn

As the protagonist of Horizon: Zero Dawn and the new release Horizon: West forbidden, Aloy spent her childhood in exile, without anyone being allowed to speak to her. This was due to the mysterious circumstances surrounding his birth and his strange connection to the metallic beasts that roam the dangerous lands of the year 3000.

Aloy can replace these machines, allowing the player to tame robotic creatures. These creatures imitate organic animals, such as horses, birds, and bulls. Some can be ridden and all can be used to aid Aloy in battle. He’s a great character in an even bigger offline PlayStation game.
