Trivia[edit | edit source]
The Red Forest is the area surrounding Chernobyl, within the radioactive exclusion zone that was created after the city's power plant melted down. According to the Huntress' background, which wraps up with stating that "German soldiers began to pass through, on the march to attack the collapsing Russian Empire," this is confirmed to be the very same location, with Anna's story taking place before and during World War II. However, The Red Forest didn't acquire its nickname until after the Chernobyl disaster, which resulted in the reddish-brown color of the decayed, surrounding flora. Considering that the meltdown didn't occur until 1986, the game's use of the nickname in direct association with her backstory is an anachronism.
