Elden Ring takes place in a fictional location known within the game as the Lands Between.
The massive open-world roleplaying game by FromSoftware Inc. is not unlike the other Dark Souls-style adventures they have put forth. Similarities aside, however, it is a brand new area for players to explore.
The game's setting is completely fictional and the Lands Between is truly a place to behold. Players have been sinking hours into the game in an attempt to uncover its secrets.
Elden Ring is set in the Lands Between
The Lands Between is an enormous continent made up of several different regions and subregions. It was ruled by Queen Marika the Eternal and is blessed by the Erdtree and the very ring from which the game gets its name.
The location was created and named by George R.R. Martin, the famed author of A Song of Ice and Fire, which was turned into the hit HBO television series Game of Thrones.

Martin collaborated with Hidetaka Miyazaki, the mastermind behind the entire Souls franchise, to form the game's lore, its world, its inhabitants, and some of its storylines and quests.
Here are all of the main regions found in the Lands Between:
- Weeping Peninsula
- Liurnia of the Lakes
- Altus Plateau
- Mt. Gelmir
- Mountaintops of the Giants
Each of those locations has its own set of areas and are quite large. Players are still discovering secret underground dungeons and fields that host some of the mightiest enemies in the game.
Traveling throughout the Lands Between, uncovering those secrets, and finding areas that may be unknown to the player are some of the main goals the creative team strived for when developing Elden Ring.
