Ubisoft Shanghai developed title I Am Alive, the apocalyptic survival budget title for PS3 and Xbox 360, has finally been announced for release on the PC. This comes as a surprise after several comments from UbiSoft on the risk of releasing a title on the PC market due to piracy.
Check out the PC release trailer here…
Ubisoft is releasing the game via Steam and their own online store for Windows. The PC version will feature some enhancements over its console predecessors including sharper, higher resolution graphics. I Am Alive, which was panned by some critics for being overly realistic and difficult has addressed these concerns with a new “Easy” mode. This will allow casual gamers to ease into the gameplay because it enables you to have an infinite amount of retries. It will also feature Replay mode, which allows gamers to go back and replay stages at will. Furthermore, Ubisoft also has included fully configurable mouse, keyboard and game pad support.
I Am Alive for Windows PC has the release date of September 13 2012 and will be on sale for a mere $15. At that price, we’re also filing this under our Cheap Thrills section!
