There were a lot of cool places to visit in The Last of Us, but Pittsburgh was one of the best.

Instead of visiting the real Pittsburgh, why not visit a virtual one? There’s a twist, though. This Pittsburgh is in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Though the city is in shambles because of the outbreak of a fungal infection that turns people into cannibalistic zombies, it is still quite fun to roam around in the ruins of Pittsburgh. While visiting, you may run into some trouble with roaming bandits, who kill “tourists” or people traveling through the city in order to steal their things. Dodging these bandits and hoards of infected, visiting this city is a tense, thrilling ride.

Packages include:

• Car transportation to the city. Then you are on your own.
• A variety of melee weapons and guns.
• A charming “welcome” from the local bandits.
• Your own gas mask in case you run into spores of infected.
• A kit to craft your own health and weapons.

Explore the suburbs of the city and find out what happened to everyone.
