Elden Ring is FromSoftware’s biggest game to date and its first attempt at a true open-world map. With an open world to explore, spread out across multiple regions and biomes, Elden Ring will offer players a lot of freedom when it comes to exploring.
But, with such a big world, there are now more destinations than ever and keeping track of when you can access them and when you should take them on is a real pain. Some tips in-game and a handy map do help alleviate the struggle, but if you want to know about each location in detail and get an overview of all the Elden Ring regions, then you will need a comprehensive rundown with all the relevant information.
So that’s exactly what we’ve put together in this Elden Ring regions guide. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about all of the Elden Ring areas that you can find spread throughout The Lands Between.
Elden Ring Regions
Here are the four regions of Elden Ring that have been revealed so far:
- Roundtable Hold
- Stormveil Castle
- Weeping Penninsula
- Castle Morne
- Liurnia of the Lakes
- Academy of Raya Lucaria
- Atlus Plateau
- Leyndell, Royal Capital
- Siofra River
- Ainsel River
- Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow
Roundtable Hold appears to be the main hub of the game, which appears to be the main hub for the game. Teased at the Taipei Game Show, the Roundtable hold will be where most of the NPCs are found.
This is one of the main areas where you can level up in Elden Ring, buy new spells, and upgrade your weapons. You can only access the Roundtable Hold by fast-travelling, meaning it isn’t located in the main area of The Lands Between.
Limgrave is a large, open region of The Lands Between and was the area featured in the network test for the game. Full of open fields and packed with dense groups of trees, the area features a number of abandoned buildings, such as a cathedral.
It also contains pathways to a number of connecting areas of The Lands Between, and will seemingly serve as one of the main areas in the full game.
Stormhill is the large hillside connected to Limgrave and connects to Stormveil Castle, which is at the peak of this section of The Lands Between.
Full of mist and bad weather, Stomhill will serve as a challenge for players before they take on Margit the Fell Omen, a challenging and fast boss.
An imposing fortress positioned at the top of Stormhill, Stormveil Castle is the next stop on your journey after defeating Margit the Fell Omen. However, despite housing the next logical boss fight, you can actually choose to route around and skip Stormveil Castle altogether.
Should you choose to enter, be prepared to fight your way through its legion of protectors – the rewards are well worth it.
The Weeping Penninsula can be found in the south of The Lands Between and is home to a number of structures, a Minor Edrtree, and the fortress known as Castle Morne.
Castle Morne can be found at the far south of the Weeping Penninsula and is a small fortress that has been taken over by beasts.
Liurnia Of The Lakes
Liurnia of the Lakes is one of the swampy areas in Elden Ring and was shown off in a gameplay video from GameInformer.
The area is full of gross wetland creatures and deadly magic attacks that will catch you off guard. FromSoftware games are known for having its gross and claustrophobic areas filled with frustrating enemies and it looks like Liurnia of the Lakes could be Elden Ring’s version of that.
Academy of Raya Lucaria
Deep in Liurnia lies the magical heart of Raya Lucaria’s gate town, the Academy of Raya Lucaria. Though the town below it has been submerged, the academy itself remains untouched, towering above the waterlogged architecture below.
After making your way through this labyrinth of learning, you’ll be treated to a visually-gorgeous encounter.
The depraved lands of Caelid are awash with scarlett rot, dying its landscape a blood-red hue. The only signs of life you’ll find across its wretched landscape are a peckish bunch of chimaera-like horrors and the denizens of the putrid swamp at its centre.
The northernmost section of Caelid is where you’ll find Dragonbarrow – one of the region’s higher-level zones. Meanwhile, heading south will take you to a battle unlike any other you will come across in Elden Ring.
To the north of Liurnia, high above the great lift, you’ll find yourself bathed in the golden opulence of Atlus Plateau.
At the region’s core lies the capital city, Leyndell, as well as the great Erdtree Milena requests your assistance in reaching at the beginning of the game. Though Leyndell is a golden city, scratch away at it enough and you’ll find something much grubbier underneath.
Leyndell, Royal Capital
Leyndell is the Royal Capital of The Lands Between and one of the most grand and majestic areas in Elden Ring.
It is packed with tough challenges for players and home to some of the biggest spectacles you will see in Elden Ring.
The Siofra River runs deep underground and connects to Limgrave and Caelid. It is home to mysteries, enchanting wonders and some mythical beasts.
Its unique visual design and makes it one of the most beautiful places in The Lands Between.
Ainsel River runs far below Liurnia and is home to ancient ruins, creatures, and mythical forgotten civilisations and cities.
It holds some rather tough challenges, but you will be in for an amazing experience when exploring.
Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow is an island off the east of The Lands Between and holds ancient bestial tricks to learn and creatures to fight.
It can be accessed by speaking with Gurranq after meeting D at Roundtable Hold or outside of Caelid.
