Is there fast travel in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty featured

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty presents players with a big, dangerous world to explore. It’s riddled with soldiers and monsters, to say nothing of fearsome bosses. Every corridor could hide a secret, or the surprise encounter that ends you. This dangerous environment has led some players to wonder whether fast travel is an option in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty.

Traveling fast in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

The adventure you take through ancient China in Wo Long┬áis broken into individual stages called battlefields. It’s not an intricately connected world like we saw in Elden Ring.

There is no fast travel system to warp around within a single environment, but you can travel to different battlefields in an instant. This setup allows you to head back to camp for supplies when you plant a battle flag just ahead of a boss chamber and then return to the flag to resume your journey uninterrupted. But you can’t hop from flag to flag within a particular battlefield.

Fortunately, maps evolve as you explore them. Early in the game, for instance, you find yourself exploring the Mt. Dongshan region. Not far from the start of that area, you encounter a ledge you can climb to an elevated path. That upper path follows a narrow ravine. At the end of the ravine, you find a higher ledge you can’t quite reach. Later, you’ll make your way to the top of that same ledge through other means. Then you can push down some bundled wood to produce a ladder.

Most battlefields are reasonably compact and circle back on themselves a lot. The larger ones include numerous shortcuts: doors you can quickly pass through once you open them from the other side, ladders you can knock from their perch, and so forth. If you need to revisit a previous battlefield, you can travel to its entry point from a battle flag.

While there is no straight-up fast travel option, the game’s design gives you little reason to miss that feature.


Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is available on Steam and the Xbox marketplace.
