The Lands Between are vast and treacherous to navigate, map fragments will help you piece together every route and shortcut. Here’s where to find all Elden Ring map fragments.
You’ll start finding map fragments in Elden Ring early in your playthrough, each one of these opens up your world map, allowing you to see where you’re going and record important landmarks once you’ve visited them. This also allows you to fast travel and avoid the many dangers that lurk in the Lands Between.
However, to fast travel anywhere, you’ll need to unlock all Elden Ring map fragments. This can take a long time if you don’t know where to look and many will be unavailable to you until you reach a specific region of the map.
The good news is that you’ll only need to unlock each map fragment once in the game. Your map, and the location marking of everywhere you’ve visited, carry over into New Game plus, but in your first playthrough, you’ll need to gather every fragment in the game to fully open up every location.
All map fragment locations in Elden Ring
Every map fragment in Elden Ring can be found by visiting stone obelisks scattered throughout the Lands Between. Once you enter a region, you’ll have an empty map of the area, but the stone obelisks will be marked, allowing you to ride towards them to open the map up properly.
Remember, you won’t be able to just ride around the map from the start and unlock every map fragment, many are regions are gated and will require you to progress in the story before you can unlock them.
