THE BUZZ: Ubisoft finally officially confirmed that I Am Alive will be coming this winter to the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, and it even provided a brand new trailer.
The game was first announced back in 2008 and Ubisoft went very quiet about its existence shortly after that. The game will be coming this Winter for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The official description of the game is as follows:
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.
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.
EGM’s TAKE: We are so happy that this game has finally been given a solid release window even if it’s been tuned down to a downloadable title.
What do you think of the game being scaled back?
