The station was originally a part of Arbat Confederation. However, in July 2023, it was captured by the growing Red Line, not only for symbolic reasons, but also due to its strategic position, which is close to the Red Square and Lenin's Mausoleum.
During Hansa - Red Line War, the station was turned into an impenetrable fortress where intense battles were fought with heavy casualties on both sides. Red Line nearly lost the station several times but always quickly regained their ground.
When the war ended, the station turned into a fairly peaceful place. As of 2033, passage is allowed to all Metro citizens.

When the Red Line learned that Rangers had captured D6, they began preparing for a massive attack, aimed at capturing the bunker complex. Ploshchad Revolutsii was turned into a training camp for Red Line soldiers who were supposed to conduct the attack. In huge workshops located deep under the station, the communists started building an armored train, which they would later use as a battering ram during their attack. One day, Secretary General Comrade Moskvin personally arrives at the station for an inspection, along with his advisor and Intelligence General Czeslav Korbut.
The station and its surrounding depots are directly seen during several levels. The beginning of the level Korbut takes place in the station, where Artyom is interrogated by Moskvin and Korbut. During the next level, Revolution, Artyom must sneak his way out of the station, passing the depot with the armored train in the process.
