The Elden Ring Map Could Be Up To Nine Times Larger Than Previously Thought

The only continent that was shown as part of the Elden Ring playtest appears to be less than a third the size of the final map.

In a recent preview, Kotaku Australia writer Junglist explains that during the network test that took place late last year, they had assumed that the continent they were confined to would be all that Elden Ring had to offer. In the most recent version of the game, however, the map appears to expand further than previously thought.

The preview indicated that zooming out of the world map showed as much of the original continent as possible, now surrounded at the top and bottom by black bars. While this leads to the possibility of the map being larger than we originally thought, there may also be a bug that allowed players to zoom in farther than intended in this unreleased build.

However, playing further, Junglist discovered that the map could be much larger than the mainland. Finding themselves teleported to another part of the map, the player checked the map again and found themselves at the edge of a much larger black square, with the original continent only filling a small portion of the whole. While it’s hard to gauge the actual size of the final map, this could mean that the final map is much larger – possibly up to nine times – than we originally thought.
