Being an open-world game, Elden Ring has a massive world with lots of secrets hiding in open sight. Elden Ring has taken a different approach to its map as compared to its predecessors. Players can’t only view the map at any time, they can also put pins on the map to visit the areas later. This makes the map the most integral part of the game.
However, the whole map of The Lands Between is covered in fog upon the players’ arrival, and it can only be completed by finding map fragments scattered throughout the game. In this guide, we will explain how to find these map fragments and view The Lands Between in its full glory.
What Are Map Fragments in Elden Ring?
Elden Ring’s map is huge, teeming with beautiful vistas, mysteries to uncover, and creatures that want to kill the players. However, before looking at the whole map of the Lands Between, players need to collect fragments of it. These fragments help in expanding the full map of Elden Ring.
To see the full map of each region, players will need to learn about the Elden Ring map fragment locations. Most of the map fragments can be obtained from the base of pillars with glowing text. These pillars also appear on the map as the players explore the area and subsequently remove the fog from their map (making it a lot easier to collect map fragments).
The map Fragments are easily noticeable to anybody standing close to them. Upon acquiring a map fragment, the next time players open their maps, the area gets filled with details and the map expands with new locations and areas to explore.
Elden Ring is divided into 9 major areas or biomes. These major areas are further divided into sub-areas, resulting in a total of 16 areas that players can explore. Not each area requires a map like Crumbling Farum Azula and Elphael, Brace of Haligtree. The rest of the areas are covered in the guide below with their corresponding map fragments.
Finding these Elden Ring map fragment locations is not that easy if the players don’t know where to look. Some areas in Elden Ring are so huge that it takes up to 3 map fragments to cover them completely. There is a total of 19 map fragments in the game and the location of each one is explained below in detail.
