Breath of the Wild was the first Zelda game that gave us the chance to freely explore the big beautiful land of Hyrule. Tears of the Kingdom expands upon that same glorious open world by adding entirely new sections in the sky and underground that you can explore. All of that room to roam means that there are a lot of things to find across every region of Hyrule.
Although you can certainly explore the game yourself and naturally discover the different shrines, items, and secrets the game has to offer, there’s an easier way to find things. We have all of the maps and location guides you need to find pretty much everything in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Note: At the time of publish some of our location guides are not fully complete. We are actively working on finding everything for you!
