I Am Alive Lives Up To It's Name Once Again

Having survived numerous delays and a total re-engineering, Ubisoft's post-apocalyptic survival adventure I Am Alive is heading to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network this winter, unless it doesn't.

Considering the game's history, I can't help but be sceptical when Ubisoft announces a release window. Hopefully this time around they're really, really serious, and we'll finally be able to help our everyman hero find his wife and daughter a year after the post-apocalyptic "Event".

The following quote is not the "Event".

"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."

The announcement is accompanied by an extended version of the trailer leaked last month, featuring plenty of climbing, fighting, and just plain surviving. It looks like something I really want to play, so here's hoping Ubisoft doesn't kill it.

    Looks interesting as hell. I wanna play it.

    The graphics need to be good in this game.

    When I first head about this I remember hearing mention of a community that the player would be involved in, and that supporting and managing the community would be a core part of the game.

    Didn't see much of that element in the trailer, but it was a part of the game I was keen to see. Ah well, even if they dropped it, still looks looks pretty cool.

    This looks like it could be a pretty epic downloadable release.
