Is there an official Forgotten Realms map out for D&D 5e yet? Any book or map I can purchase if it is not available online?

As of now, I have the Starter Set which comes with the just the Sword Coast region of Faerun around Neverwinter (The Craggs, Sword Mountains, etc). I would like to know how does it all fit in?

From what I have read up on this topic, from 3.5e to 4e, FR had lot of changes to the geography. And in 5e FR, some event happened (The Sundering) which kind of restored it to 3.5e FR but not fully?


There's a map online of the northwest corner of Faerun, but I don't believe there's an official map of all of the Forgotten Realms yet. As someone who's new to the game and setting, I find the Forgotten Realms wikia to be a great source of information, and it has a page for the Second Sundering which I believe is what you're looking for.


In addition to the map in chooban's answer, there's a more detailed map of the Savage Frontier (which extends from the Sword Coast to the desert of Anauroch in Storm King's Thunder on pg. 74-75). As pointed out by @DerekStucki in the comments, a high-resolution digital version of this map is available for download for free online.

In fact, all of Chapter 3 in Storm King's Thunder details the Savage Frontier pretty well along with the map. I believe there is a special dungeon master screen for Storm King's Thunder which provides the map if you don't want to pay the full price for the book.

Official stuff is always on dnd.wizards.com, especially on their Faerûn page.

So there is Faerûn and in it we find the towns:

But not yet the map... But wait! There is it! The official map in its very own article, a bit hidden! Here, ready for download! For FREE! But wait, where's all the info? Oh, Do you want to know MORE! Is that map too tiny? Do you want it laminated and with more info? Run to your shop and get the Sword Coast Adventure Guide!

Wait, you need special maps for Storm King's Thunder? Why didn't you say you in the beginning? HERE! The official one for this module, with a MAP on the inside! You're missing the module yet? missing what it is about? Wizards can help! Really? You want me to tell? In short: ... it's a D&D Module! Yes, yes, I know, I am evil, but I do no spoilers!

Year and day later...

Apparently Mike Schley, the artist of the Tomb of Annihilation, ALSO provides maps for the forgotten realms in an official function (as prints & downloads) via his own website. On that page, you surely will find the Faerûn sub page, but I am nice and link it.
