How to fast travel in Dead Island 2

In a somewhat curious design choice, Dead Island 2 doesn't feature a fully connected open world. Instead, you go to individual zones that are connected via loading screen as you progress through the game. Early on, this might lead you to think that there's no fast travel function, however, that isn't the case. You don't get the ability to quickly zip between locations for longer than you would in most other games, and it does have restrictions, so here's everything you need to know about fast travel in Dead Island 2.

How to unlock fast travel

Until you reach the Venice Beach location as part of the main story in Dead Island 2, you'll have no other option but to hoof it from one location to another. Once you reach this point, though, you can start moving around a bit faster, with some restrictions.

Step 1: Get to Venice Beach.

Step 2: Meet up with the Blue Crabs and go into the safehouse.

Step 3: Go to the map of LA on the wall indicated by the street sign icon on your map.

Step 4: Interact with the map to open up the fast travel menu.

You can only fast travel to other safehouses that have one of these maps in them. Each of the game's 10 zones have at least one fast travel point, with Venice Beach and Brentwater Sewer having two each, but you do need to first access each of them before they become available to fast travel to.

How to get the Fierce Deity set in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

One of the most fun parts of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is tracking down and wearing the different outfits that are modeled after Link's prior incarnations. There are plenty of new and cool outfits introduced, of course, but sometimes you just want to feel a bit of nostalgia.

For fans of Majora's Mask, you will no doubt want to get the titular mask, but the Fierce Deity set is perhaps even more coveted. This was the most difficult mask to get in the original game, requiring you to trade in every other mask before the final boss fight, and it transformed Link into a fearsome warrior. While it isn't quite as hard to get as before, you will still need some help finding the entire set. Here's where to find every part of the Fierce Deity set in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to buy and build a house in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Link building a house with Ultrahand.

In most instances where Link has had a house, it usually never served much purpose. When Breath of the Wild came around, we were introduced to Terry Town and the ability to buy and customize our very own house for the first time. Now in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Terry Town is back, but buying and building your very own home functions quite differently. You're not just buying a house and paying to upgrade it anymore, but have much more control in actually designing it. If you want to give Link a peaceful place to relax and call home, here's how to buy and build a house in Tears of the Kingdom.

It would be safe to say that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a love letter to the entire franchise. While it is a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it still contains tons of callbacks and references to other entries in the series. Much like Majora's Mask, there is another headpiece from a previous game you can get and wear. The trick is figuring out where it is, of course. If you want to dress up as the Twilight Princecss herself, here's how to get Midna's Helmet in Tears of the Kingdom.
