Springwood is a quiet town in the Midwest, somewhere to raise a family, where neighbours are friends, the diner waitresses know their patron’s names, doors are left unlocked and nothing can possibly harm the residents or those they love.
But this is just a veneer, covering a rotten core. Under the cover of respectability, a parasite named Freddy Krueger stalked his prey in what should have been the town’s safest space. Once these poisonous crimes were uncovered, the townspeople decided to act. They didn't trust that the authorities would be able to deal with him, to provide the justice they craved, so they banded together and hunted him down.
With a single, decisive act, they hoped to burn away the infection from their lives. But they were too late. The threat might have gone but the rot has infected everything. The houses that seemed so pretty now have darkness behind their windows. The leafy streets echo with the sound of fire and screams. And nothing will ever be normal again.

"Betrayed by the town, he exacts his revenge by taking all their children."
- In the Game files, the Springwood Realm is being referred to under the name England, a reference to Robert Englund, the actor originally playing the Character of Freddy Krueger.
- Springwood is located in the U.S. State of Ohio. 
- Before The Realm Beyond brought a graphical update to the Springwood Realm, car plates featured on its Maps used to allude to the Entity recreating its 1980s iteration, the timeframe of the original movie. In present times, the aforementioned plates were changed to their 2004-2010 counterparts, the timeframe of the Nightmare on Elm Street 2010 reboot, wherefrom the DLC's Characters stem.
