Verona is a fictional city and is the main location set in The Devil's Playground scenario for the Genesis Chronicles. In the game, it is situated along the coast where main black market shipments have been sent to be delivered to possible buyers. It had once been one of the main tourist destinations in Italy, owing to its artistic heritage, several annual fairs, shows, and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient amphitheater built by the Romans. Now, it is a location of war and infection.
The city is besieged by B.O.W. wars and Leon is sent to retrieve a government contact who had attempted to try and make peace among the chaos, but his connection was lost. The city is overrun by undead and monsters upon Leon's arrival and most of the streets have been barricaded in a futile attempt by the Italian Police to quarantine the area.
The city features ancient architecture, statues, and even an enormous cemetery. Most of it can be explored throughout the scenario. More importantly, there is a massive shoreline where various cargo ships are stationed for transport and also the location for the conclusion of the scenario.
Because the game does not clarify what becomes of the city after the end of the scenario, it isn't known what its fate is by the end. However, it is highly likely that it would have been destroyed by the Italian Government to contain the virus.
- The real life Verona Italy is not positioned near a coastline as the one seen within the game.
- There is a statue of the Florentine poet Dante Alighieri centered near the town square that can be viewed and passed in the game.
- Most of the city is abandoned, so it is safe to assume that most of the people were killed or had escaped to safety.
- It isn't made entirely clear if Alex had complete control of the city's government or not as he had with many others.
