Russia is one of five official maps in Unturned 3 along with PEI, Washington, Yukon, and Germany. It is a large multi-biome survival map based on the country of Russia, primarily focusing on the western portion located in Eastern European. It features locations from three of its European federal districts—Central, Northwest, and Volga—and two Asian federal districts—Ural and Siberia.
There is currently only one variant of Russia that exists: Festive Russia.
It was released on August 19, 2016. The map was developed in collaboration with Justin "Gamez2much" Morton, Mitch "Sketches" Wheaton, Alex "Rainz2much" Stoyanov, and Amanda "Mooki2much" Hubler.
- Russia was the first map not solely developed by Nelson. Contributors of the map include Gamez2much and Rain who worked on the map itself, and Sketches and Mooki2much for several vehicle and object models respectively.
- It is the only map where berry bushes cannot be found. However, Berries can be purchased at T.Rickster's Black Market Smuggling Vendor instead.
- Russia has the largest Deadzone Node, covering a large portion of the northern area of the map.
- Russia is, along with Yukon, one of the only maps with unobstructed train tracks, and thus one of the only two maps with a Cargo Train spawn.
Before the outbreak, Scorpion-7 bought an artifact from builders at Keryev for research overseas. The infection later arrived at the Shereyavo International via a cargo plane and subsequently spread to Moscow despite the efforts of airport security and the Russian military to contain it. The military attempted to launch the nuclear missile from Silo 22 at Moscow to contain the infection but it was sabotaged by a rogue general. Ultimately, the military ended up attempting to collapse tunnel entrances leading out of Russia to contain the spread of infection using the artillery train Ivan but were all wiped out. The Coalition's aircraft carrier Liberator arrived from Germany to the southeast after some time have passed.
