Yup. The city was named after the massive Pripyat river and had to be abandoned when Chernobyl had its meltdown. I figure this game won’t have nuclear reactors though, although we won’t need those to justify adding freaks of nature. :P

Speaking of ghost towns though, cities being absorbed by the swamp is definitely a thing in folklore (like Saeftinghe). That opens up new location types, like partially sunk cities hidden deep in the marsh that continue to sink ever deeper into the ground as their fundaments rot away. The buildings themselves covered in plants and now inhabited by the creatures of the swamp (Rat-men!). It would be a hellish place to fight because of the exhaustion caused by the difficult terrain, but there might still be something good to find. Things that the current occupiers overlooked or couldn’t see the value of.
