Traveling between locations can be a drag in these type of games, but fortunately, that's not the case in XC3. But that doesn't mean you can fast travel from the start. You have to play the game a little before jumping around the map. To unlock the fast travel for your heroes in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, you'll have first to discover some locations. Simply put, you can fast travel only when you have areas to travel to.

You can visit several types of places with fast travel in Xenoblade Chronicles 3. After you discover them the first time, next time you can return there with fast travel. These are vital locations where you go to solve quests, fight enemies, but also rest:

  • Landmarks—Basically, these are attractive locations that, once discovered, you can use for fast travel.
  • Rest spots—Camping places where you rest your characters.
  • Colonies—Safe zones where you can recuperate, get some quest work, and talk to townspeople.
  • Named Graves—Places where you've defeated Unique Monster. After you defeat these boss-type enemies, you can use their graves as a fast travel location.

When you unlock places of interest, you can fast travel to that location wherever you want during the game. OK, almost always, as you can't teleport during battle, so forget that option as a means of escaping. To fast travel in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, follows these instructions:

  1. In the game, go to the Main menu.
  2. Choose the Map option.
  3. Select a place of interest on the map that you want to travel to (some Landmark, for example)
  4. Press the Skip Travel button to fast travel to the desired location.
