I Am Alive by Ubisoft is Coming to the PSN



Ubisoft has announced that “I Am Alive”, a post-apocalyptic action/adventure game, is coming to the PSN this winter. The trailer looks very promising, especially for a PSN release, and I can’t wait to see more.

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 the post-apocalyptic, 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.

    I cannot wait for this game. I am a little disappointed it’s a PSN title now, but I’m still just glad they are releasing it.

    Looks interesting! Early part of vid reminded me of Infamous 1. Will it have a parkour game mechanic? Lots of ledge hanging and so on. I’m a little dubious about the fog effect, which looks like it may mask a quite limited range of view.

    Looks interesting enough, but nothing special.

    So this game was first announced in 2006, in 2008 Ubisoft got another developer on the game, 2010 they had a teaser and now its a PSN release! I think the game never got finished and Ubi decided to shove a few levels, make a trailer and release the game for PSN and LIVE … but lets not jump to conclusion, might be a decent PSN release after all!

    This was announced centuries ago, normally I would be excited about this but because Ubisoft is now on my boycott list…I don’t care x_x

    Looking forward to it. Since it’s now a PSN release chances are good for us to have a review for the game!

    Really interesting to see that this game will be released.
    Unfortunately is not the same game, which was presented at E3 2009.
    That was much better but at least gave that impression in his trailer.
    We will have to wait now to see that Ubisoft will bring us

    @Cheeto
    That is exactly what I’m thinking, and also exactly why I’m worried about it. It just seems odd dropping a game from full retail to PSN. It screams “we couldn’t finish it, but we have this much done!”. However, I am really hoping it turns out.

    I have watched this since day 1. I pooped my shorts when they brought this up again

    I fear they have either toned it down a lot or just recycle what they have made in the last few years and put on a PSN release aka not good enough for a full retail release
