The epic new action role playing game  Final Fantasy XVI is here. Sporting beautiful visuals, crisp combat and an engaging story, it’s certainly quite the game. The previous game, Final Fantasy XV, had quite a large map to navigate, but it also had some handy fast travel options to get around, and you may be wondering if the same is true in FF16.

Here’s How to Fast Travel in Final Fantasy XVI

Following in the footsteps of FF15, we’re able to navigate to various key locations via a convenient fast travel in FF16. Although there is no vehicle to cruise around in with the boys and teleport to when you like, there is a map-based fast travel system that you’ll be making use of a lot throughout your playthrough.

To use it, first press the Options button on your PS5 controller and navigate to the map tab. From here you will find the world map, which will have various locations marked with red pins that you will be able to fast travel to and from. Just select the one you want to go to and hold down the X button to initiate fast travel. This will allow you to easily travel between key locations as needed throughout your playthrough.

That’s all there is to using fast travel in Final Fantasy XVI. Use the very nice looking world map to jump between locations and you’ll be sorted! If you’re looking for more about the game, take a look through our full range of coverage
