I Am Alive trailer and screenshot surface
After seemingly years in the wilderness Ubisoft have just released a fresh screenshot and gameplay trailer of the mysterious I Am Alive. While the shot doesn’t really tell us much more than we already knew (i.e. that the game is set in Chicago after a cataclysmic earthquake), the press release does come with an interesting little nugget of news: I Am Alive is now to be released on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade as a downloadable title. Check out the screenshot and trailer below:
Here’s the press release in full:
Developed by Ubisoft Shanghai, I Am Alive was engineered to create a convincing, post-disaster world in which players are faced with thought-provoking choices.
I Am Alive follows an everyman’s journey to find his wife and daughter, who were lost during the “Event.” A year later, he finds Haventon, his hometown, in shambles. Buildings are destroyed, toxic ash fills the streets, and society has been torn, causing inhabitants to take all necessary actions to survive.
“We know people have been waiting for this game to arrive, and we believe it’s going to be worth the wait,” said Adam Novickas, Director of Marketing at Ubisoft. “I Am Alive presents a unique take on thepostapocalyptic, survival genre by creating more complex and emotional situations for the player. Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network are the perfect platforms to leverage the mature and challenging experiences of the game.”
In I Am Alive, players will be challenged by both their environment and their enemies. Stamina and resource management are key when being exposed to deadly atmospheres and scaling enormous buildings in search of supplies. The unique combat system requires players to utilize intimidation: cowards are easily swayed with an empty gun, while other enemies will put players to the test.
