Elden Ring is a massive game, and unlike past Soul’s-Like experiences, there are countless more things to see and do within the world, like find Map Fragment Pieces. But with a world so vast, it helps to have a little guidance, and this is why the in-game map comes in so useful. The only problem is that the pieces of the world map are scattered throughout the game. Thankfully, CGMagazine has found the locations of all the map fragments, so you can ensure your journey through Elden Ring is a bit less dangerous.
In a game where everything can kill you, the map is the first step in conquering the experience. The map is incredibly useful when hunting down some of the more elusive gear and for sorting out the best course of action for one of the many quest lines Elden Ring has hidden in its game world.
