How to get a pet in Diablo 4

Since it's an always-online experience, you'll never truly be alone in Diablo 4. Between all the other players you can encounter roaming around the world, and the ability to play co-op with friends on any platform, odds are you will never be lacking a companion. Even so, you can't expect someone to keep you company at all times, unless you get yourself a pet. Granted, there's only one pet available at the moment, and it is purely a cosmetic item and won't help you in combat, but is an adorable companion nonetheless. Here's how to get a pet in Diablo 4.

How to get a pet

The unfortunate requirement to having access to the Wolf Pup pet is that you need to have participated in any of the Diablo 4 beta periods and reached level 20 with a single character. If you were not able to participate or reach that level prior to launch, there is unfortunately no other way to get a pet at this time.

Step 1: Start a character and complete the prologue.

Step 2: Reach Kyovashad and locate the wardrobe. This is marked by an icon of a dresser on the map next to the chest icon.

Step 3: Interact with the wardrobe and switch from the Armor tab to Items.

Step 4: Select Back Trophy and select the Beta Wolf Pack item.

Step 5: Make sure to hit Confirm Look to save your outfit before you exit the wardrobe.

You will now have an adorable sleeping wolf pup nestled safely on your character's back. So far, this is the only pet option in the game and, again, it's only available if you reached level 20 in the beta. However, we suspect that this will become available through other means in the future, and that additional pet items will be added in future updates.

How to start the Far Harbor DLC in Fallout 4

Once you've done and seen everything there is in the base Fallout 4 game, it's time to venture out beyond the Commonwealth. The Far Harbor DLC was the first to add an entirely new zone to the game, but it doesn't stick it onto the existing map. It doesn't take long to get yourself to the new island once you know the proper steps, but you need to do a few specific things in the game before it will be an option, and the game won't tell you what those requirements are. This is all you need to know about how to start the Far Harbor DLC in Fallout 4.

How to get XCoins in XDefiant

Every game with an in-game shop like XDefiant also needs its own form of currency. Typically, there's more than one to make things even more complicated. XCoins are the name for Ubisoft's premium currency needed to buy most of the cosmetics, such as skins and animations. Some games allow you to earn small amounts of the premium currency for free, while others only sell it to you in exchange for real cash. You don't have to pay to start playing, but will you need to start spending money once you do? Let's dig in and find the answer.
How to get XCoins
XCoins can only be earned in two ways in XDefiant. The first is to simply purchase them with real money. You can buy bundles of the premium currency in the Store tab of the menu by selecting Get More XCoins. These are the bundles currently available:

500 XCoins: $5
1,000 XCoins: $10
2,100 XCoins: $20
5,750 XCoins: $50
12,000 XCoins: $100
