While it's true that Redfall is heavily focused on exploration and traversal as a means to immerse you in the new game world that Arcane Studios has created, the game does still offer you fast travel. This is seen as a healthy balance and lets you discover the world unhindered by endless walking.
But how do you fast-travel in Redfall? Well, that's what this guide is here to answer. Keep reading to find out more about the steps you'll need to follow to fast travel in Redfall.
Redfall - How To Fast Travel
Fast traveling in Redfall is quite simple, and only requires one thing, you discover the location first. Similar to other games in the open-world genre, it follows the discover, and unlock principle, where the discovery of a new area unlocks it as a fast travel point.
Once unlocked, all you need to do is open up the game map screen, find the location you want to fast travel to, and click on it. This will trigger a black loading screen and when it goes away, you'll be in the desired location.
This is the principle of unlocking fast travel points that will apply to any location you find throughout the game, so you don't have to do anything. Once a location is discovered, you'll be able to fast travel to it.
The game also offers the player the ability to cancel a fast travel, which is quite useful actually, since there may be times you forgot to grab an item, loot an area, or just click on the wrong area. So be sure to keep this in mind as a useful trick for avoiding these backtrack situations.
It's also worth noting that you don't need to trigger any story quest or checkpoints to activate a location as a fast travel point. Simply discovering it will make it available (similar to Skyrim), and you won't need to put yourself or anyone else at risk by needing to venture further to activate the location.
This gives you the full benefit of the fast travel mechanic, as you can discover an area, fast travel back to your main base, or safe house, and prepare your resources to explore and clear out the area. So be sure to take advantage of the fast travel abilities in the game and you'll be set to explore the world and defeat the vampires that await you.
