Today, Ubisoft announced that I Am Alive, a believable post-apocalyptic action-adventure game, will be available to download on Sony Entertainment Network, on April 3rd, 2012 in North America. European release date is set for April 4th, 2012.

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.

It’s been one year since “the event” occurred and you’ve finally made the trek across the country to see your family again. The game begins with an unknown woman watching a video from a handheld camcorder. What she sees is our hero explaining his situation by making a video diary of his adventure, his adventure back to the fictional city of Haventon. The mission: Find his wife and daughter.

I Am Alive is…well, you know the rest

Sep 29, 2011

It’s been a long-time since it was last seen and discussed, and the question has been asked many times: “Where is I Am Alive from Ubisoft?”. Well today, Ubisoft answered it by announcing that I Am Alive, a postapocalyptic action/adventure game, is coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this winter. 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 Lucile Bousquet, Marketing and Communication Director at Ubisoft Canada. “I Am Alive presents a unique take on the postapocalyptic, 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.
