The Adoption Process

To be able to adopt animals at all, you must complete Chapter 4 – A Land in Bloom.

Adoptable animals are mostly found on the post-battle maps and marked with orange dots. Stroll up to one of these critters and hit A to bring up the adoption prompt. There are some you can outright adopt, but some animals need to have that region invested in before you take them home.

Even when exploring the world map, you can stop at a place on the map to see the information for that area, including what animals are known to appear after a battle. Certain locations like castles or dungeons do not have any animals.

Once you say yes, the animal will become available to roam in Somniel. If you are unable to adopt the animal at present, you can return to the Somniel’s Bulletin Board, and select Donations to start investing in other nations. Rare animals like the Vervain Deer, Panna Camel, and others can only be adopted once you have reached level 2 with that nation.

However, once you have reached level 2, you will need to return and battle on that map, or others in that region to return to the post-battle exploration and adopt more animals. If you don’t see any skirmishes available, return later and they will gradually shift their locations.

The Stable

In order to get your new pet out in the open, you’ll need to go to the stable in Somniel. From there, you can select up to five animals at a time to graze in the Farmyard.

The biggest boon of this, besides how cute they all look, is that after every battle, the animals will have gathered materials for you. Each animal can provide a different material, so be sure to try a lot and see what they bring.

There does not appear to be a limit on how many animals you can adopt, only how many you can have placed. Since some will drop cooking ingredients, and others forge materials, be sure to place the animals that get the items you need the most.

Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is CDPR's Most Expensive DLC - IGN Daily Fix
Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty is CDPR’s Most Expensive DLC – IGN Daily Fix

In today’s Daily Fix: Cyberpunk 2077 is getting the long-awaited DLC expansion, Phantom Liberty, later this year, and developer CD Projekt Red is spending big bucks on it. According to the developer, it cost more to make than The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine expansion, which was practically a whole game in and of itself. In other news, the Dead Space remake is apparently so scary, even the developers had a hard time playing it at night. The team consulted with fans early on in development, and this resulted in some incredibly creepy environments, so creepy that technical director David Robillard didn’t like playing with headphones on after hours. And finally, Crystal Dynamics is stopping development on Marvel’s Avengers. The game will not be available for digital purchase after September, and cosmetic items will be made free. If you already own it, you can still keep playing, though!
