After 10 years of allowing players to fight fungus-infected humans in the PlayStation horror-themed video game, the wildly popular zombie-style brand set in a postapocalyptic America, will come to life as a haunted house beginning Sept. 1 at Universal Orlando Resort and Sept. 7 at Universal Studios Hollywood.The game is produced by Naughty Dog.
“As a massive fan — and frequent attendee — of Halloween Horror Nights, we are honored to have The Last of Us included in this year’s lineup. It has been an incredible thrill for us at Naughty Dog to collaborate with Universal, bringing the world of the game to life, focusing on even the tiniest details that our fans know so well,” Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann said.
Guests who dare to enter the house (or maze) will encounter iconic game locations including The Hotel Grand and dark and dank tunnels. But look out for the terrifying Clickers, Raiders, Runners and Stalkers, not to mention The Hunters.
“The world inside the game offers a multitude of suspenseful and horrifying opportunities to provide guests with a one-of-a-kind experience that can only be found at Halloween Horror Nights,” added John Murdy, executive producer of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.
