Banishers Ghosts of New Eden map size, locations, and regions

The Banishers Ghosts of New Eden map is massive, split into a number of distinct areas and biomes with a couple of major landmarks.

How big is the Banishers Ghosts of New Eden map? The Banishers map is split into five distinct regions, but where most open-world games make it possible to explore in any direction, this is a little more complicated. You can backtrack and fast travel, but the world is mostly interconnected narrow paths rather than being truly open.

Saying the Banishers Ghosts of New Eden map is a specific measurement is rather redundant because the terrain in the RPG game is filled with unreachable cliffs and lakes. Instead, we can take a look at all the regions in order of when you’ll explore them and the major landmarks within each one. Make sure you’re also clued-up on how long Banishers Ghosts of New Eden is as combined with the full map, that will give you a strong idea of what to expect.

The Banishers Ghosts of New Eden map is split into five regions:

  • The Dark Woods
  • The Mire Marshes
  • Mount Pleasant
  • The Harrows
  • New Eden Town

The Dark Woods region in Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden.

The Dark Woods

Once the prologue is done and out of the way, you’ll begin Banishers as Red on the beach on the southern coast of The Dark Woods. This stretch is mostly linear until you reach the camp led by Kate and Thickskin Newsmith in the middle of the region, at which point you can head off in any direction you like.

This is also the only major landmark in the region because all the surrounding areas are mostly full of forests and rocky terrain. The path you’ll take for the main story leads you to The Mire Marshes through the middle, however, there’s also a path to the south which leads through to The Harrows.

The Mire Marshes

The Mire Marshes is the smallest area — aside from New Eden Town — in Banishers, as it only really has the old fort encampment near the middle. However, there’s plenty of swampy terrain to get through first, and there’s also Siridean’s island here, which you’ll reach by boat.

Siridean’s Island isn’t tiny, but there are also no enemies there, meaning you can explore it quickly. There also isn’t too much to find here beyond an altar and Siridean’s shop. After you’re done on the island, you reach the broken bridge to New Eden Town, at which point you must decide whether to go north to Mount Pleasant or south to The Harrows.

Mount Pleasant

If you head north, you’ll quickly be greeted by snow in the mountainous region of Mount Pleasant. The main place to head for here is Fort Jericho, though you won’t be let in immediately, you must rescue Helen Preese first. As you’ll discover during the main story, Mount Pleasant also has a vast underground mine where you’ll spend a lot of time and encounter one of the most impressive Banishers Ghosts of New Eden bosses.

To the west of Fort Jericho you’ll find the Bligh Estate, a huge manor house that contains a spooky Haunting Case. This is where you can unlock the Hidden Door achievement, which requires finding the secret passage in Bligh Manor.

The Harrows region in Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden.

The Harrows

The Harrows is the largest region in New Eden, spanning a few different biomes. Most of the area is quite lovely with farmland and rolling hills, along with a long beach on the south coast and some more rocky, forested terrain as you approach the path back to The Dark Woods.

The Harrows is the name of the main camp here in the south-east corner. You will find an old windmill towards the south-west, a few moored, destroyed boats even further along the beach, and another huge ship that has crashed on the shore of one of the lakes in the middle.

Finally, we have New Eden Town. While this is technically the first region you visit in the game during the prologue, it’s also the final one, as you return to face off against The Nightmare once more.

Since you cannot access New Eden Town at any point, there are no major landmarks to highlight here other than the old schoolhouse. This acts as a campfire to rest at once again when you return, and the winding path to the north of the town where Red and Antea initially docked.
