Hekseville is the primary setting of Gravity Rush, and a featured location in Gravity Rush 2. It is a city on the World Pillar, located beneath Eto and above Boutoume, and serves as Kat's home city for the first game, as well as part of the second.
Hekseville comprises four districts:
- Auldnoir — the Old Town, a primarily residential area where Kat lives.
- Pleajeune — the Entertainment District, home to numerous bars and shops, as well as Arquebus Academy.
- Endestria — the Factory District, which serves as the city's industrial hub.
- Vendecentre — Downtown, home to the city's financial and government sector.
The districts are connected to one another via a railway loop, as well as by numerous manholes that Kat can utilize. Additionally, each district features a particular color scheme, as evinced by the color of the sky in each: Auldnoir is red, Pleajeune is purple, Endestria is yellow, and Vendecentre is green.

Upon Kat's return to Hekseville in Gravity Rush 2, Bulbosa explains that D'nelica stepped down after the events of the first game. Since that time, there have been a few interim mayors, but Bulbosa states that the upcoming mayor is "the first viable candidate to emerge from the chaos after what happened." This is ultimately revealed to be Dr. Brahman.
