What is Erangel?

The map is named Erangel and is a fictional island based in the black sea. Erangel was originally occupied by Soviet forces from the 1950’s onwards and was used as a military testing facility, which explains the military base as well as the hospital and storage facilities.

A local resistance movement fought to reclaim the island which eventually lead to the island becoming abandoned.The electrical field that you see wreaking havoc on the island is powered by electrical emitters which were used to contain towns that were showing signs of revolting against the Soviet forces.
