The full Zelda Tears of the Kingdom map is found here - or rather, all three TOTK maps are here, as Hyrule is split into three different layers: the surface, the Depths and the Sky Islands above. These maps get revealed as you find Towers and Lightroots, but having the map revealed below on our page will make it far faster to do that - or allow you to skip the whole cartography element altogether!

So for those who want to know what's ahead and worth going through, here's the full map for the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, including the surface, sky and depths alike.

Above you can see the full map of Hyrule from Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, as players will experience it for themselves! The surface level map is clearly pretty similar as to how it was in Breath of the Wild, being the same region, though those exploring it will find a range of differences, especially in settled areas and towns.

However, there's more to the map than just that…

The Depths are a huge open space of caverns beneath Hyrule and as big as Hyrule itself, one that we've uncovered ourselves by means of the Lightroots! However, we can see that the layout of the Depths mimics the layout of Hyrule's surface, such as a curling cavern on the East side to match the curling peninsula on the surface. If you want more detail on exploring this deadly realm - as well as the location of every Lightroot - we've got all the laid out in out Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Depths guide here!

The Sky region above Hyrule is technically as big as the surface itself, though obviously it's a lot less populated than the rest of the region, with archipelagoes of floating islands that you can visit and travel between. The full sky is shown above, though it won't all be accessible from the start of the game, with a couple of areas requiring story events or gear to access. You'll also see the Great Sky Island to the South, which is where the game's tutorial takes place!

How to reveal the map in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

To reveal the full Hyrule map in your own game, you'll need to find all the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Skyview Towers, which update your Purah Pad with details on the region that the tower is in. These towers also reveal the section of Sky in the same area, so once you find all towers, you'll have the whole Surface and Sky regions revealed!

The Depths is different - that's uncovered by finding Lightroots, giant glowing structures dotted around the Depths that illuminate the section of map they're in. Though not easy to spot, there is a secret to them - there is a Lightroot directly under every Shrine on surface level. That means if you don't know where to look, check the Surface map, then scroll down to the Depths and place a pin under that! You'll find a Lightroot there.
