Korean MMO Black Desert has been making the rounds with its stupendous beauty and amazingly complex and deep side systems. One of those gets shown off today in horse-taming.
You might have got a glimpse of it in this earlier video (See the 0.55 mark), but the above gives us more information on how you’ll be getting your own steeds. Not only will you have to lasso the bucking horse in a minigame, walking your way slowly to the panicky beast, you’ll need to also successfully placate it after.
You can craft items that will help increase the chance of successfully taming one, including feeding your hooked mare foodstuffs and what the storekeeper swears are sugar cubes. You can do this when you hit level 20 in the game. Obviously, mounted steeds give you bonuses to movement speeds and will zip you along faster.
Once they’re yours, you can also equip them with several items including saddles, shoes and suchlike, if the previous video’s suggestion is right.
Black Desert is slated for a PC release in Korea and Europe.
