When you first begin your journey in Forza Horizon 5, fast travel is very limited. Spread around the map are houses for you to purchase with credit earned from races and various other activities, with prices ranging from a few hundred thousand to several million credits. Every house you buy becomes a fast travel node. You can designate one house as your “home” by visiting it and it will be a free fast travel destination. The rest initially cost 10,000 credits each time you teleport to another house, a steep price early in Forza.

Open your map and hover your cursor over one of your houses. Select it, and a pop-up window will tell you the fast travel price and ask you to confirm. Say yes, and you will be whisked away to start your drive from your destination.

How to unlock fast travel to any road

There are only a handful of houses, and the map of Forza Horizon 5 is enormous. Wouldn’t it be better if you could just instantly teleport to any road? The good news is you can. Purchasing the Buenas Vistas house comes with the fast travel anywhere per, but doing so requires investing a bit of time and a lot of credits.

First, you need to focus on the Expeditions. These are the larger racing adventures that are unlocked as you progress though the game. There are five groups of Expeditions. Completing the first entry of a group unlocks houses and other miscellaneous destinations in a region. The Buenas Vistas house is available once you complete the Guanajuato Expedition.

Unlocking the Buenas Vistas house is the easy part. Now you need to pay for the place. At 2 million credits ,this is one of the most expensive properties in Forza Horizon 5. Plan to complete a lot of races, and make sure to use your wheel spins every time you level up. It will take some time, but the expanded fast travel is well worth the cost.

I’m broke!

Now that you’ve just spent all your money, fast traveling at 10,000 credits a pop may be a luxury you can’t afford (it’s the avocado toast of Forza). But there is a way to get it for a discount and, eventually, free of charge. That is where fast travel boards come in.

Fast travel boards are wide, rectangular signs scattered across Mexico. Every time you smash one, it permanently lowers the cost of fast travel by 200 credits. There are 50 total, so you need to destroy them all if you want fast travel at no cost. Keep an eye out for the lightening bolt symbol on your map as you drive and take the time to seek these out. Do so, and you are finally free to travel about the country.

Best Xbox One deals: How to buy the discontinued console
Xbox One S bundle deals

The Xbox One has been officially discontinued, but that doesn't mean it's unattainable. If you prefer the console over the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, you can still buy refurbished units from retailers like Amazon. With its expansive library of games that will keep both casual and hardcore players busy for a long time, the Xbox One remains a meaningful purchase, despite Microsoft's rollout of its new generation of consoles. While it struggled against Sony's PlayStation 4 due to a rocky launch in 2013 because of a limited selection of titles and a higher price tag, the Xbox One gracefully recovered. Helping it bounce back were console exclusives from the Halo, Forza, and Gears of War series. If you're planning to buy the Xbox One to enjoy video game deals on these exclusive titles, as well as popular cross-platform games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Red Dead Redemption 2, we've gathered the best Xbox One deals available online to help you in your search.

Another important characteristic of the Xbox One is its fantastic multimedia capabilities, with the Xbox One S being one of the most affordable 4K media players available on the market. The Xbox One S and the more powerful Xbox One X both boast a 4K Blu-ray player, a feature that isn't found in the PlayStation 4 Pro. For gamers who also want the option to watch their favorite movies and TV shows in crisp 4K from their console, the Xbox One is the machine for you.

All status effects in Lies of P and how to cure them
Pinocchio in Lies of P.

Lies of P is a challenging role-playing game that will test your mettle at every turn with deadly enemies and dastardly environmental traps. But to make things even a bit more difficult, you'll have to contend with a collection of status effects that can majorly affect your character and make things much harder for you in battle. We've compiled a list of all status effects in Lies of P, as well as a list of ways to cure them.
All status effects
There are a total of seven status effects, with each either dealing damage or having a noticeable impact on your ability to perform in battle. Here are all of them and how they work.
Overheat is caused by taking too much fire damage too quickly. When the Overheat bar fills entirely, you'll begin to burn and lose health until it is cured or wears off naturally. During this time, your Guard Regain recovery amount will also be reduced, which can drastically impact your survivability in fast-paced encounters.
When Shock is applied, your character's stamina recovery will be reduced significantly, which can have devastating consequences. Until this effect is cured or wears of naturally, you'll be stuck with very limited movement and attack opportunities due to your decreased stamina.
Electric Shock
Not to be confused with standard Shock, Electric Shock is caused by taking too much Electric Blitz damage in a short period of time. When this happens, you'll take increased Electric Blitz and physical damage for the duration of the effect, and your Fable meter will drain continuously, which can reduce your attack options in combat.
Decay is caused by taking too much Acid damage within a small time window. This will cause constant weapon and acid damage, both of which can make life difficult for you in battle since letting it go on for too long can result in needing to repair your weapon while also dodging your foes' attacks.
Corruption is caused by a buildup of, well, Corruption. When this happens, you'll be afflicted with what is essentially your textbook poison effect, meaning your HP will drain continuously until it wears off or is healed with an item. This can be especially challenging to cope with when also fighting enemies, so avoiding sources of Corruption is highly advised when possible.
Break is an annoying status effect to contend with, as letting its bar build up entirely will temporarily decrease how much health your Pulse Cells heal. This can be especially frustrating when you already find yourself at low health and don't have many Pulse Cells left, but it's usually best to wait until the effect wears off before healing so you can ensure you get the maximum amount of health possible.
Disruption is perhaps the most concerning of all status effects in the game, as you'll be instantly killed when the Disruption bar fills up entirely. If you find yourself in a situation where a lot of Disruption damage is being doled out, it's best to back off until the bar depletes some or you'll soon be seeing a Game Over screen.
How to cure status effects
There are multiple items in the game designed to help you cure specific ailments, as well as items that can increase your resistance to them so that you can reduce your chance of becoming infected to begin with. You can find these cure and resistance items in various places while exploring throughout the game, or you can buy them with Ergo from Polendia at Hotel Krat.
