Lying on a desert plain with mountains to its north, the city is exceptionally expansive with the core of the city on higher ground than the outlying regions to the southwest on the banks of a river. The city became the capital of the Terran Dominion and during the Brood War the it was the most heavily fortified city in the Dominion, an assessment that still held true during the Spectre Rebellion.
Structurally, Augustgrad is a showpiece of Dominion wealth and influence. Massive buildings are located in the core of the city, reaching upwards. On the ground, bustling streets are intermingled with quiet parks and open spaces.
The UED sent enslaved zerg to reinforce their troops in Augustgrad. However, their control of the Overmind was tenuous, so not many were sent. The UED forces occupying Augustgrad were overwhelmed by zerg under Sarah Kerrigan. General Edmund Duke then established his base of operations in Augustgrad. The next morning, Duke's base was attacked by multitudes of zerg while most were asleep and unaware. The base was destroyed and Duke was killed.
In the four years since the Brood War, Augustgrad was extensively decontaminated, modernized and beautified by Dominion tax dollars. It now features parks, statues of Mengsk and his imperial palace. It is somewhat congested however.
In 2503, the Battle for Augustrgrad occurred, between the rebel Project Shadowblade and the Dominion. Shadowblade's AI, Lio Travski, shut down communications and Mengsk's Palace was attacked by spectres. However, the assault ended in failure, and Shadowblade withdrew.
Shortly before the Second Great War, Augustgrad was bombarded by a pirate radio signal playing a song called Wings of Liberty. This lasted at least two days, leaving Dominion officials scrambling to find the source.
In October 2504, the Dominion unveiled the Odin at the UNN Studios, not realizing that it was piloted by Tychus Findlay. He fired on the studio guards, confusing the Dominion for several minutes, during which time Raynor's Raiders set up a forward base using a command center they acquired earlier. As they moved against the broadcast towers, General Horace Warfield attempted to stop them. However, Raynor's Raiders successfully broadcast proof that Mengsk used psi emitters on Tarsonis. This caused rioting in the streets, during which citizens set fire to government buildings.

While Crown Prince Valerian Mengsk and Captain Matt Horner evacuated civilians, Kerrigan landed outside the city gates. The zerg drove Dominion forces into Augustgrad after using bile launchers to destroy the Drakken defense network. Broodmother Zagara then pushed the Dominion into the Imperial sector, where Raynor's Raiders teamed up with the zerg to take on the Dominion's elite. Kerrigan entered the palace and killed Mengsk with the help of Commander Jim Raynor. The zerg then departed.

It was originally hazy as to whether "Korhal City" was the same location as Augustrad. The Wings of Liberty mission Media Blitz takes place in a city that is effectively unnamed, bar flags in the mission labeled "Korhal City." However, map editor files confirm that the city is indeed Augustgrad.
