Hellsgate Prison: Under strict control of Warden Anselma Von Payne, this facility is home to some of the most horrific and psychotic killers, tortures, and maniacs in the entire world. As you journey through these decrepit walls, you hear the cries of the wicked. Don’t get to close to the bars. The psych ward houses those of extreme dementia. In the infirmary, nurses and doctors have performed so many various tortures and pathological experiments, they themselves are on the verge of insanity.
Sanctorium is home to Necropolis Cemetery. It is unlike all other cemeteries. It’s population seems to be declining. Things seem to be moving all around you, or are they just shadows? A dark decrepit mausoleum within contains little safety, as its heinous keepers are not fond of living visitors.
Maximum Carnage: Through walkways of twisted steel, rusted cage, and toxic waste, not many dare to enter. Those who call this place home have zero tolerance for the “outside” world.
