In the Shadow Plague DLC, certain events will take place in Turkey, about a group of cavers discovering an extremely deep cave system in this country, at the bottom which lies a strange Shadow Pool of water in a previously unknown part of the cave.
IG Factbook: "Modern Turkey was founded in 1923 from the Anatolian remnants of the defeated Ottoman Empire by national hero Mustafa Kemal, who was later honoured with the title Ataturk or 'Father of the Turks.' After a period of one-party rule, an experiment with multi-party politics led to the 1950 election victory of the opposition Democratic Party and the peaceful transfer of power. Since then, Turkish political parties have multiplied, but democracy has been fractured by periods of instability and intermittent military coups (1960, 1971, 1980). Turkey intervened militarily on Cyprus in 1974 to prevent a Greek takeover of the island and has since acted as patron state to the 'Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus,' which only Turkey recognizes. A separatist insurgency begun in 1984 by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has dominated the Turkish military's attention and claimed more than 30,000 lives. Turkey joined the UN in 1945 and in 1952 it became a member of NATO."
- This country is a rural country, meaning that it is one of the easy infected country with the Livestock transmission tree.
- In a news headline, it mentions that there is a "Minor gold rush near Istanbul". This news is because in the city of Istanbul, there is the big bazaar, or market. People can find gold and jewelry for sale. The big bazaar of Istanbul is an area of great commercial activity, although few enjoy such good status as those related to the purchase and sale of gold.
- In another news headline, it says that "Turkish protests' could be turning point". This means that protests were made in Turkey because of human rights cuts and censorship of the press; but at the end of the protests, it only increased violence and enmity against the population and the government, since the purpose of these protests was to improve the social state of Turkey.
- The Shadow Pool origin story involves the discovery of a group of caves. This group of caves are located in Cappadocia, a historic region of Central Anatolia. This origin story is a reference to Vampire: The Masquerade, in which a clan of vampires inhabits Mount Erciyes.
