How to form a company in New World

New World is heavily driven by its PvP content, and the best way to take advantage of all it has to offer is by forming a company. These function much like guilds do in other games, as they’re essentially groups of players that work together to accomplish a variety of tasks.

Forming a company in New World is a straightforward process, although there are a few things you’ll need to knock out first. If you’re hoping to start your own company and take control of Aeternum’s sprawling map, here’s what you need to know.

What is a company in New World

Companies are player-formed groups that are associated with one of three factions in New World — Marauders, Syndicate, or Covenant. You can only join a company with players in the same faction as you, making it imperative that you plan ahead with your friends. If one of you joins the wrong faction, they’ll need to switch — an option that’s only available a few times per year.

Companies can then take part in a variety of PvP content, such as declaring war on another settlement or participating in Outpost Rush battles. In short, joining or creating a company allows you to take full advantage of all the PvP options in New World, and you should try to become part of one as soon as possible.

How to form a company in New World

After tackling the first few quests and running around Aeternum for a few hours, you’ll eventually have the option to form a company. The process itself is incredibly easy, but there are several tasks you’ll need to complete before Amazon Games gives you the chance to become the leader of a company.

Here’s a quick rundown of how to create a company in New World:

  • Play through the main questline until you’re given the option to choose a faction.
  • Join any of the three factions. Take note that only players in the same faction as you can join your soon-to-be-formed company.
  • Open the Main Menu.
  • Select the Company tab on the far left of your screen.
  • Select Create Company. This will give you the option to create a name and banner for your company, then send out invites to any friends who are looking to join.

Creating a company is arguably easier than joining a pre-existing one. To do that, you’ll need to get invited by another player or peruse the Recruitment chat at the bottom left of your screen. Once you get invited, simply press F1 and you’ll join the company.

Now that you’re part of a company, you can check out detailed information about the group by heading back to the Company menu. This will show you a list of all players — and their position — in the company, as well as an overview of your company bank and other regulations.

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.

Indie World Showcase 11.14.2023 - Nintendo Switch
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.

How to fast travel in Spider-Man 2
A fleet of drones flying towards new york.

There are few games that are as fun to simply move around in as Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Between the silky smooth swinging and new wingsuits, the expanded New York map is a Spider-Man's playground. However, with the addition of an all-new section of the map, getting all the way from one end to the other will start to become a time-consuming process. As fun as traversal is, there will be times when you're doing sidequests or cleaning up collectibles that you'll just want to get where you need to be and skip the trip. Spider-Man 2 pushes the PlayStation 5's SSD to the limits with near-instant fast travel, but it takes a bit of work before you're able to use it.
How to unlock fast travel

Fast travel is not only locked by default, but must be earned for each of the game's individual boroughs. Each section of the map has a completion ranking that fills up as you perform activities within it, such as sidequests, photo-ops, Marko's Memories, stop crimes, and more. Each will boost the total level, with three rewards tied to set points. The first will give you some Rare Tech Parts, but it's the second one we're after. Once you hit about 50% completion, you will unlock the option to fast travel in that specific zone. You will need to repeat the process for each borough to fully unlock the map.

How long is Starfield?
An astronaut stands in front of an artifact in Starfield.

Bethesda Game Studio titles are notorious for being some of the most expansive and long-lasting RPGs of their type. Starfield is the first new IP from the studio in over a decade, and yet it follows the same basic formula of the company's staple series of having just one main quest, but hundreds of sidequests, activities, and places to explore. The difference here is you're not locked to a single landmass like in an Elder Scrolls game, but have an entire universe to explore. Before you get in the pilot seat and blast off to adventure, it's best make sure you have enough supplies to last the trip. Here's how long you can expect to spend in Starfield.
How long is Starfield?

There are a few ways to break down how long Starfield will take you. Let's start with the easiest measurement, which is how long the main story will take. If you were to only focus on following the critical path, you could probably get through Starfield in around 20 hours. That's a decent chunk of time, but will obviously only show you a fraction of what the game has to offer. Many people do ignore the main story in BGS games, however, we strongly recommend you see this story through before completely losing yourself to side content.
