Grimsborough is a major city in the United States, and the main setting for The Conspiracy, the fifth season of Criminal Case. The Conspiracy marks Grimsborough's second appearance in the game after the first season.
The new rendition of the city, which is composed of ten districts, is much more detailed, larger, and looks livelier than ever before, despite a mysterious object from the sky crash-landing into the Grimsborough forest a year earlier, bringing new secrets with it. The Grimsborough Police Department (GPD) returns as the law enforcement agency that serves the city.
The now-restructured Grimsborough, which is set to feature a total of sixty cases, houses ten districts:
Fairview is the first district of Grimsborough investigated in The Conspiracy. It focuses on catching the Rocket Cow Killer, a serial killer who is using a mixture of amlodipine and the Rocket Cow energy drink to induce heart failure in their victims. It also focuses on the player readjusting to the changes Grimsborough and its police department has undergone when they were gone.
Money Mile is the second district of Grimsborough investigated in The Conspiracy. Also known as the Financial Center, it focuses on the aftermath of a major earthquake that struck Grimsborough, whose epicenter lied on the district. It also focuses on a suspicious artist using the earthquake to advance her career, along with the disappearance of Zoe Kusama, a social worker.
The Greens is the third district of Grimsborough investigated in The Conspiracy. Previously the dodgy and gang-ridden Industrial Area, the district now boasts tech startups and trendy businesses such as smoothie bars, thanks to the work of One-Tooth Sam. It focuses on investigating DreamLife, a tech company that has recently released an addicting virtual reality game and that owns the satellite that crashed a year ago. It also focuses on investigating mafioso-turned-businessman Tony Marconi and his possible connection to Zoe Kusama's disappearance.
Old Town is the fourth district of Grimsborough investigated in The Conspiracy. Apparently built on top of an ancient city, the district focuses on investigating The Higher Truth, a cult dedicated to enlightenment and reaching higher planes that has been making anonymous donations to DreamLife and their efforts to protect their crashed satellite in the forest.
