The Wastelands was abandoned by all civilized people, and only home to Evil Demon Ghosts. Thousands of years ago the Wastelands were known as Mirnoye Gorod, which translated in english meant: Peaceful City. But when a plague came and no one knew how to cure the ill, the survivors fled the city, leaving the dying to regrettably rot there. Once they died, their souls were possessed by the Evil Demons and came to gaurd the secret deep underground.
Thousands of years later, Montana was hired by a wealthy man, who lusted over the chance there might be a treasure chest, to travel to the Wastelands.
