European Dead Zone was ground-zero for a cataclysmic event that left a massive shard of The Traveler - the source of every Guardian's power and immortality - embedded into the vast landscape. For years, only wild vegetation and the remains of an abandoned city were evidence of our forgotten past. Now, the Red Legion are using the European Dead Zone as a staging ground for their war machine.
The Guardians find their way to a small camp that has been set up by settlers. They can rest and restock at this location.
