Death Stranding is split into 3 World Maps. This page reveals the full in-game map.
The Regions are split into East, Central, West of the United States. You start in the East and work your way towards the West.
Below you can find the full Death Stranding World Map (In-Game Map):
East Region Map
East is where the game starts. It’s a medium-sized map. Running from north-east to south-west would take around 20 minutes. It features mainly grassland and some rocky areas.
Central Region Map
Central Region is where Episode 3 – 8 take place. It’s the biggest map by far. It’s about 3-4 times bigger than East Region. Running from the north-east corner to south-west corner would take about 40 minutes. This map extends much further east-west / south-north than the first region, making it much bigger overall. It features mainly grassland and snowy mountains.
West Region Map
West Region is where Episode 9 takes place. It’s the smallest map, roughly a tenth of East Region.
