Whether or not you’re a fan of zombies or games (or zombie games!), we’re sure by now you’ve heard of the HBO TV series, The Last of Us, betul tak? Ever since its premiere in Malaysia on 16 January this year, the video game adaptation show has been the talk of the town thanks to its deep and grim portrayal of a world torn by a mass mutated fungal outbreak which turns people into aggressive creatures.
This show is so eerily realistic, the only way it’ll become real-er is if we entered The Last of Us world ourselves! BUT WAIT! What if we could do exactly just that?
MALAYSIANS BEWARE: From now until 26 March, The Last of Us is “infecting” the Astro Experience Store at IOI City Mall Putrajaya to give you an immersive horrific experience!

Drop by the first and ONLY The Last of Us takeover store in Malaysia!
Fans can immerse themselves in the dark and spine-chilling atmosphere that made the series so highly acclaimed! Littered with dilapidated objects, vegetation overgrowth and the croaking sound of infected humans, you’ll feel like you jumped straight into The Last of Us’ dreadful universe!
Speaking of the Infected, you might be (un)lucky enough to encounter them at this store! Once normal human beings, the mass fungal outbreak gradually turned them into monstrous and aggressive humanoids bent on infecting any survivor that comes their way!
To add to the horror, you’ll even find a 3D Infected man attached to a wall (as depicted in the first episode of the series)! You can even get up close and personal with this 3D decoration for photos and videos! But will he bite? That’s for you to find out… 😈
But there’s more to this takeover store than its grim decorations and atmosphere!

“But what is with the hype surrounding The Last of Us?”
Adapted from the 2013 survival horror video game, The Last of Us is a post-apocalyptic story which follows Joel, a smuggler tasked to escort the 14-year-old Ellie across the Infected-torn United States. Along the way, they encounter new friends and foes among other survivors and are forced to fend off countless Infected as they make their way to their destination.
Ever since its first broadcast, this drama has been praised as one of the greatest and most faithful video game adaptations of all time! Fans of the original game and critics have praised its heavy action, poignant storytelling and visually striking production design which all come together to perfectly portray an Infected-torn hellscape (and we can vouch for those reviews too)!
