Hawkins National Laboratory
|"Hawkins National Laboratory"|
The Realm consists of 1 Map and is set in a laboratory theme. The Realm's prominent colour palette is blue-green.
The Hawkins National Laboratory was one of many federal compounds devoted to the Project MKUltra program.
While conducting mind control experiments with test subjects on the ground floor—mostly on abducted children—the underground was ripped open by an inter-dimensional gate. This rift eventually unleashed an army of creatures in Hawkins.
The authorities managed to seal off the facility, but not before the Chicago Sun-Times published an article exposing the operation and its part in the death of Hawkins High School sophomore, Barbara Holland.
The laboratory’s multi-story compound still stands, a grim reminder of the disturbing events that happened there, most of which remain undisclosed except to the few who witnessed them firsthand.
