Skyrim Map Contains All Notable Locations

[Update: Check out the free Skyrim Official World Interactive Map app for iOS here!]

Alright, we’re getting just about as close as we’d like to video game worlds resembling that of our own lives in size and scope. Trying to find your way across a city or neighborhood is hard enough without dragons and draugrs stalking you at every turn, but that’s been the challenge posed to players of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for weeks now. Thankfully, some industrious fans have created a poster-sized map of the province of Skyrim, with all important locales clearly marked, and it’s yours for the printing.

In case you’re thinking that the previous game world maps have given you an accurate idea of just how many places and quests there are to be found, then clearly you haven’t spent that much time within the world of Bethesda‘s latest release. The countrysides of Skyrim are certainly beautiful enough to simply stare at for hours on end,  but for those of you in a hurry, or merely trying to find one particular area, your troubles are over.

The map comes courtesy of GameBanshee, who have compiled the hundreds of unique locations, towns and dungeons that can be explored in the vast province of Skyrim. All it takes is one glance to realize that regardless of how close you think you are to completing the game’s main quest, this world is far richer than a single playthrough can realize.

Skyrim Map All Locations

The sheer scale of the map has to be seen to be appreciated, so be sure to head over to their site if you’ve got one or two (or a thousand) locations that have been alluding your clairvoyance spell. And in case you have a giant wall in need of some productivity, there is also a massive 9-page version of the map to download, so if you have any connections with printing houses, please let us know. Either way, there are sure to be a few Skyrim fans getting the ultimate location guide as a stocking stuffer.

It’s mind-blowing to actually see all of the locations laid out at once, and that’s not even including the possibility of the game including both Morrowwind and Cyrodiil. The size and scale of Bethesda’s world was never in question, but the sheer number of important points and natural formations is a testament to just how much work was done. The game’s systems may not be technically perfect, but you can’t deduct points from the game world itself.

How much of the world of Skyrim have you personally explored? Does seeing just how large the province is encourage you to explore it even further, or is there such a thing as too many sidequests? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is available now for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    what an impressive scale the Skyrim world is built on..its really the benchmark for other games.. :)

  • Cory

    you guys do realise that the gameguide by prima has the same map?

    • Yuuchun

      I’ve got the one from the Pre-order and the map from Prima. Both are okay, but both don’t really compare to this one.

        i actually prefer my in-game map, the one that has almost all the locations this one does, with the added bonus of me being able to freely roam the map and adore the vista in 3-d instead of on a washed out piece of water, or in this case pixels 😀

    I feel like I will never complete this game (because I won’t). There is so much to do, I’ve got roughly 44 or 45 hours in, I’m level 29 or 30 (can’t remember anything right now). Just found Solitude, which is an impressive city. I want to buy a house there, I own one in Whiterun already. There is actually TOO MUCH to do. I always find myself with quests just being added on!!! Imagine the DLC possibilities, remember your character was border hopping in the beginning. I want to visit Cyrodill, it’d be nice like nostalgic. Never been to Morrowind but I’d love to go. This is by far one of my favorite games! Truly epic, ok I just climaxed, I’m a stop now…

  • My other ride is a Dovah

    A bit more than halfway through the locations if this map is anything to go by, and I’ve cleared out half of those (including cities) of both gold, valuables, and NPCs. Had a lot of fun with that, now on to the other half…

      Holy crap! Reading and understanding what you wrote was quite the chore. And I’m not sure i understood the whole thing.

      Yes they’re adding new content in the future. And yes, cyrodiil and morrowind are both areas that are in the game files currently. Bethesda has not said anything about those areas, only that the DLC for Skyrim will be big.

  • Luke

    Surely you mean “eluding.”

    • Mike.E

      Yes, he does. And don’t all him Shirley.

      • Mike.E

        and that, of course, should have read “don’t CALL him Shirley”. Dammit, wish we could correct our posts here.

  • Postal Gold

    I have been playing Skyrim for months now and I am still amazed and the vastness of this game. I can’t believe how much effort must have gone into this.
    Hands down, definitely one of the all-time best games!

  • beands

    ok so i’ve found 341 out of the supposed 350 locations including 3 or 4 not on this map. i’ve done n check every location and cleared everything as i moved along. But where are these other 9+ local’s i’m missing?

    oh and just to add there isn’t going to be a morrowind or cyrodil dlc for skyrim due to the fact that the elder scrolls online will hopefully cover every map from the early days of xbox to 360, god i cant wait to see morrowind in all its glory again!

  • VB

    And if they add Daggerfall’s world too (High Rock, home of the Bretons, and Hammerfell), then it’ll rival the real world in size :) Daggerfall generated content dynamically for smaller locations, so it literally has more than 10,000 places to go to: villages, towns, dungeons, temples. It really set the series off on the path it has taken, of a massive open world where you can be whoever you want to be.

    I actually discovered 362 locations so far so I don’t know if that’s all or not but if there are any doubters my address is 606 south Pittsburgh street connellsville Pennsylvania 15425

    ELUDING, not ‘alluding’.
