How to fast travel in New World

Getting around New World‘s gigantic map is no easy task. With hostile monsters and players lurking around every corner, it should come as no surprise that the safest way to get from Point A to Point B is through New World‘s fast travel system.

Unfortunately, fast traveling isn’t as simple as opening a map and clicking on your destination. In fact, some forms of fast travel require an elusive resource known as Azoth — and you’ll need to be very careful with how you spend it. Regardless of where you’re trying to go or how you’re trying to get there, here’s what you need to know about New World‘s fast travel system.

How fast travel works in New World

There are three different ways to fast travel in New World — and none of them are perfect. However, if you’re looking to get somewhere in a hurry, using one of these systems is your best bet.

Recall to an inn

The first method of fast travel is incredibly limited, but it doesn’t require the use of any resources or currency. Within your first hour or so of playing New World, you’ll be asked to check in at a nearby inn. This acts as a respawn point if you die in combat and can also be used as a fast travel location regardless of where you are in Aeternum. Here’s how it works:

  • Open the world map.
  • Hover over the settlement in which your inn is located.
  • Select Recall to Inn.

Recalling to an inn doesn’t require any resources, but it can only be used once every hour. If you’re in a bind, however, this fast travel option can quickly get you to safety.

Recall to your home

After purchasing a house in New World, you’ll unlock the option to use it as a fast travel hotspot. Unfortunately, owning a house requires a massive time commitment and a nearly unending supply of gold — not only do you need to make a huge upfront purchase, but you’ll also need to pay taxes on your property in perpetuity.

Like recalling to an inn, there’s no resource cost associated with recalling to your home. Instead, it runs on a cooldown timer that’s determined by the tier of your home. In other words — the better your home, the more often you can recall.

The most flexible method of fast travel requires the use of Azoth — an in-game currency that can be acquired by exploring and completing quests. This fast travel system is a bit more complex than the other two but should be familiar to anyone who has played an MMO in the past decade. Here’s how it works:

  • Ensure you are located within the walls of a settlement or other fast travel location.
  • Open up your world map.
  • Hover over your fast travel destination.
  • Ensure you have enough Azoth to cover the expense — the exact amount required is impacted by your encumbrance, faction discounts, and overall distance.
  • Click Fast Travel to teleport to your destination.

It’s worth noting that you can only travel to locations you’ve already discovered. While that certainly helps add to the feeling of discovery and exploration, it also makes it difficult to meet up with friends who might be in parts of Aeternum you’ve yet to explore.

When are mounts coming to New World?

Mounts are standard in just about every other MMORPG in existence, but they’re nowhere to be seen in New World. However, that might change with a future update. According to New World‘s game director, Scot Lane, mounts are likely to make an appearance as the game continues to grow.

“I think right now our world isn’t of the size that warrants mounts,” Lane said. “When we do get there with the live game, that’s gonna happen at some point; we’ll add mounts when we feel players will benefit from them and we can do them in a really cool way that works for us.”

Until then, however, your best bet for getting around Aeternum is through its fast travel system.

Bethesda turns Skyrim into a mod platform with new Creations feature
Aldmeri Anti-Mage is one of the mods available through Bethesda Game Studios Creations in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is over 12 years old at this point, but a hefty Bethesda Game Studios update that dropped today is meant to revitalize its modding community. It turns the game into an easily accessible platform with user-made mode content, even on console.

Building on what was once the Bethesda Creation Club, this new feature is called Bethesda Game Studios Creations. Its first implementation is in Skyrim Special Edition and Skyrim Anniversary Edition across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PS5. Bethesda created a Creations storefront where players can buy and download mods that add anything from items to new characters and questlines. It's also letting Skyrim mod creators join its Verified Creator program so they can set prices for their mods and earn royalties from the sales.

Indie World Showcase November 2023: How to watch and what to expect
Key art for the November 2023 Indie World.

Nintendo is not done with video game showcases this year just yet. In the wake of a Nintendo Direct in September and ahead of The Game Awards in December, Nintendo will hold another Indie World Showcase to highlight several independent games coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. If you plan on tuning into the event live, we've rounded up all the information you need to know about it beforehand.

When is the November 2023 Indie World Showcase
Nintendo confirmed that the next Indie World Showcase will begin at 9 a.m. PT on Tuesday, November 14. Nintendo says the presentation will only take about 20 minutes, so you'll only need to take a little bit of time out of your morning to watch it.

Like most Nintendo presentations, the company will livestream this new Indie World Showcase across its official YouTube and Twitch channels. We've embedded the YouTube version of the showcase above so you can tune into the whole presentation right from this page.
What to expect from the November 2023 Indie World Showcase
The official announcement tweet and press release for November 2023's Indie World Showcase simply states that it will feature "new announcements and updates on indie games coming to Nintendo Switch." In terms of previously featured Indie World games that still aren't out, titles like Animal Well, Rift of the NecroDancer, and Pepper Grinder come to mind.
There are also plenty of memes on social media about Hollow Knight: Silksong showing up during the event; it's a game people have wanted to see in one of these showcases for years, but it has never shown up. Ultimately, Indie World Showcases are tough to predict because they are typically curated roundups of intriguing indie games that most people don't know about. You'll have a better time watching November 2023's Indie World Showcase if you go in with low expectations and just look forward to seeing some impressive indies you weren't aware of before.

Every year when the new Call of Duty title drops, the playing field is once again reset as everyone needs to start grinding back up the ranks. Fully embracing the RPG elements, Modern Warfare 3 once again allows you to earn XP as you play match after match to rank up your character, with each rank not only bringing you closer to hitting prestige but also unlocking new options for your chosen operator. Your player rank is unique from your weapon levels and can take a lot longer to grind if you don't know the most efficient methods. If you want to fast-track your career through the ranks, here are the fastest ways to earn XP in Modern Warfare 3.
How to earn XP fast in Modern Warfare 3
There's basically no way you can play Modern Warfare 3 without earning XP, but some modes and methods can earn you double (or more) what you could if you were just playing without a plan.
Play the objective

We all love playing team deathmatch or any other mode where all you need to worry about is being the one to shoot first. However, if you want to earn that sweet XP fast, you need to choose one of the objective modes like Domination, Hardpoint, Ground War, or even Kill Confirmed. Not only do you get XP for killing enemies, but the amount you get on top of that for playing the objective can make up the bulk of your XP gain. This is especially true if you're not at the top of your game and end up dying more than you kill since you have another method to contribute. Also, objective modes grant you an XP bonus just for finishing the match.
