So how do we Reveal the Map in Elden Ring?

To reveal or unlock the hidden parts of the map in Elden Ring, you need to look for map fragments. These are nothing but collectibles you can gather from different map places where you can access these and use them for revealing their corresponding part of the map. So in order to unlock the Elden Ring map, you will need to play a mini-game of sorts to find those map fragments.

Map fragments are placed under certain monuments. These monuments are mostly situated on the roadside and can be easily approached. Although there is not plenty of information about other related things, you will still see the map fragment monuments on your map.

The position of these monuments is clearly marked on the map with a unique symbol (though very small in size).  Sometimes, however, you may need to wander in a sub-section of a region until the map draws the monument icon for you. Once you decide to get a map fragment of a certain region, you simply need to approach it and click for looting.

The glow on a monument will fade away as soon as you remove the map fragment it holds. This will cause a lot of details to be seen now, the description of which can also be viewed by visiting your inventory.
