PlushSpiffo.pngThis article is about the current map for Project Zomboid. For the map prior to 0.2.0r, see Knox County.

Thanks to the efforts of Blindcoder, a complete and fully interactive map has been made available to the community. You can assist in his efforts on expanding the project by visiting the thread on the forums.

Knox Country (formerly known as Knox County) is a partially fictional area where the events of Project Zomboid take place. The map is heavily based off of the real-world area around Fort Knox and Louisville in northern Kentucky, USA. Knox Country contains recreations of the real-world Muldraugh, West Point, Dixie Mobile Park, March Ridge, Fallas Lake (formerly known as Ekron), Valley Station, and Louisville. There are also some entirely fictional towns within Project Zomboid, including Rosewood and Riverside.

Knox Country was just your standard, peaceful countryside region until an outbreak of a mysterious illness that reanimates infected persons into zombies, later coined the Knox Infection. Fearing further spread, The U.S Government designated Knox Country as an exclusion zone, quarantined the area and prevented any information from reaching the outside world.
