Ubisoft to launch I Am Alive this quarter

04 Oct 11

Ubisoft has announced it will launch its delayed post-apocalyptic adventure game, I Am Alive, in the next few months.

The game was first rumoured in July 2008, with Ubisoft later indicating it would be released between April 2010 and March 2011.

Ubisoft has issued a release stating the game is due ‘this Winter’ (northern hemisphere), backing up the claim with an impressive trailer.

Adam Novickas, director of marketing at Ubisoft, says in the release that the game is going to be worth the wait.

"We know people have been waiting for this game to arrive,” Novickas says.

"I Am Alive presents a unique take on the post-apocalyptic, survival genre by creating more complex and emotional situations for the player.”

Specifically, the game will require careful stamina and resource management, with players tasked with evaluating the benefits and costs of pursuing hard-to-reach supplies.

In combat, players will need to utilise intimidation, as some enemies will be swayed by an empty gun, while others will be more aggressive.

The game is set following a natural disaster referred to as ‘the event’, with protagonist Adam Collins searching the ruins for his wife and daughter. Check out the trailer below.
