The zombie apocalypse will be descending on London as 2.8 Hours Later, the adrenaline filled, cross-city urban chase game, comes back to the city just in time for Halloween. Now in its fifth year, the 2014 version of the game, Survival, tasks participants with a mission: to collect much needed supplies from the city while solving puzzles and completing tasks along the way. The story touches on many real-life themes and current affairs including terrorism, immigration, government surveillance and corruption, set in a terrifying world of filmic gore. Basically, you become a character in your own horror film. Not for the faint hearted - you have to be over 18 to play - adrenaline is kept high as participants are forced to sprint, duck, run, jump and hide to escape the walking dead.
