How to Fast Travel in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice
Esteemed developer FromSoftware is well known for building games with exceptional level design. The Souls series has been lauded over the years for featuring maps with cleverly interconnected pathways and areas that have been huge in scale. Their latest title, Sekiro Shadows Die Twice, continues this trend, using a similar mechanic that allows players to fast travel around the map. Here is how to fast travel in Sekiro.
Just as in the Souls series, the fast travel system in Sekiro works in tandem with the safe points in the game. In Sekiro, these are called Sculptor’s Idols. Once you have rested at a Sculptor’s Idol you will have unlocked it for fast travel, and you will then be able to fast travel to previously unlocked Idols.
Using Them to Fast Travel in Sekiro
To rest at an Idol, simply press square (PS4)/ X (Xbox One). You will then see the option to fast travel to previously unlocked Idols. It’s worth noting that this will be available right from the start of the game. There is nothing specific you have to do or collect in order to unlock the fast travel option.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is set in Japan during the late 16th-century Sengoku period Japan. The player takes control of a shinobi who was left for dead after his lord was kidnapped and his arm severed by a leading samurai of the Ashina clan. The official description reads:
“Carve your own clever path to vengeance in an all-new adventure from developer FromSoftware, creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series.”
