Elden Ring Map not loading

I was playing Elden Ring and roaming around Altus Plateau, then I found myself in a maze not able to go to Volcano Manor. So, I was trying to open the Map but the Map was not coming to the screen. I tried so many times but couldn’t bring up the map. To solve this problem I had to understand why this problem occurred.

The Reason Behind Elden Ring map not showing:

The main reason for Elden Ring map, not loading is that you’re being pursued by an enemy. Maybe it’s just a hound dog afar behind you that you didn’t pay attention to. Or you slipped off a flying Eagle who’s behind you and you’re actually in a combat mode that you didn’t even know.

Elden Ring map won’t load, or you can’t open Map in Elden Ring if you’re in combat. FromSoftware prevented it because you can travel to any Site of Grace if you open the map. So, you aren’t expected to teleport to another site while in combat right!

How to solve Elden Ring map not loading:

To solve this problem you have to defeat all the enemies in front and behind of you. Make sure no enemies are following you. Generally, it’s the small fry that we don’t care about but they are the worst.

Alternately you can always run past them to a certain distance to be able to load your map. If you feel like you don’t have to defeat a certain enemy you can just run or hop with your Torrent & leave the enemies behind.

If your Map loads but don’t show the full textures & details or it crashes after loading the Map just update to the latest patch to solve this issue.

But make sure to do this first,

Elden Ring crashes after character creation

Many Elden Ring players are having an issue where after the creation of the Character the game crashes. Other players are facing that after creating the character & moving forward to the actual gameplay the game stops for a brief time then crashes.

The solution to this problem is the same as the solution to the legs, stutter & FPS drop issues.


Elden Ring is one of the year’s most anticipated releases. Bandai Namco Entertainment and FromSoftware collaborated on the game’s development. It is a freshly developed open-world action fantasy action RPG game with high-quality visuals, co-op, combat, and much more. Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator, and head of the game production firm FromSoftware, first hinted about the game in February 2019. Players have high expectations for this title because it was made by the same team that created Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne.

The issues are patching day by day. Devs are trying day-night to solve these problems. What’s making the game even more enjoyable is that the devs are listening to the voice of the gamers.

Let’s enjoy the game to its fullest.
