The game is set in the world known as Ikoria. This is a world in which monsters and beasts have ruled the lands for a long time. This means that humans had to try different things and adapt in order to survive in such harsh conditions that no one saw forthcoming in the past. But humans being humans, they have successfully adapted to even such horrific situations and conditions as now they have advanced militaristic types of equipment.
Now, a whole new thing has dawned on humans as the monsters in this land of darkness have started to mutate, and the fortress that seemed so safe for humans now has become vulnerable to monsters, and thus, humans seemingly have nothing left to hide.
