We might not be getting a new game set in The Last of Us universe anytime soon with the delay of the multiplayer game, but those who love attending Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios are in for a treat this year. Following the release of the popular HBO series earlier this year, Universal Studios is incorporating elements from the franchise into its annual theme park event in both Hollywood and Orlando.

The event kicks off at Universal Orlando on September 1, while Universal Studios Hollywood begins on September 7. Guests will have to survive a journey alongside actors playing Joel and Ellie, as they navigate through the Pittsburgh Quarantine Zone remade at the theme park. Fans will get to visit iconic game locations including The Hotel Grand and will encounter Clickers, Raiders, Runners, Stalkers, and even The Hunters.

 “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,” Naughty Dog Co-President Neil Druckmann said in a press release. “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.”

Here’s the description on Universal Studios’ website on the event:

You and your squad will encounter the haunting and overgrown world of Naughty Dog’s video game in a brand-new, terrifying way, as you make your way through an abandoned Pittsburgh. Join Joel and Ellie, and don’t make a sound if you want to survive Clickers, Hunters and more. No matter what, keep finding something to fight for.
