I Am Alive rated by Australian board

Ubisoft's Chicago-based survival game given classification by Down Under ratings group; publisher mum on title.

Despite Ubisoft only sharing a few details on the project since it was first announced at the 2008 Electronic Entertainment Expo, survival game I Am Alive appears to be just that…alive.

I Am Alive has a heartbeat.

The Australian Government's Office of Film and Literature Classification board has added a listing in its classification database for Ubisoft's I Am Alive. The game was rated yesterday, June 28, and received an MA 15+ classification for strong violence.

As of press time, I Am Alive has not yet been rated by the United States' Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), and Ubisoft has not responded to GameSpot's request for comment or clarification on the matter.

The last official word concerning I Am Alive came in 2009, when Ubisoft announced that development duties on the game had shifted from Paris-based Darkworks to Ubisoft Shanghai, in China.

I Am Alive is expected to arrive sometime in the future for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Little is known about the title, though it will apparently be a survival horror game set in an earthquake-ravaged Chicago. For more on the title, check out its debut trailer, embedded below.

In all honesty I forgot this game existed ever since 2008, all this article made me realise was its still out there... despite that it looks great but having the game been given a class doesnt pump me up and make up for the 3 years with no word about the game

@Pawfalcon You make an incredibly good point. I have to agree with you now.

@DarkReignn Even with no working piping, no rain, and no rivers/streams/whatever going through the city I still find it hard to believe that the people in the city had gone through all the water bottles, juices, sodas, etc. that quickly. Especially since the population probably dropped a tad.

@Pawfalcon I'm assuming that the earthquake destroyed all the water pipes and that would mean no running water so the only supply of water would be bottled water.

@AMCoreX well there are games that are waiting to be released just like Halo Reach. It was leaked 1 or 2 weeks before the release. Also Conan in Xbox. It was leaked 3 weeks before release! But thanks for lighting me up :D

That desperate for water after 6 days? Did all the liquid in the city evaporate during the earth quake?

@HAMZA141 Buildings lean against each other all the time, usually when they're tired. I imagine that the producers of I Am Legend just happened upon it and thought "Cool, this will save us a few thousand dollars than having to recreate it digitally". :) This game trailer looks interesting. I do hope that some further footage drags it way out of the rubble like it's protagonist. I am a sucker for ravaged cities!

@Mondrath Keep those lies coming buddy. unless of course you wanna offer proof?

@liam82517 I don't need two points this time. Though I loathe piracy, I have seen someone play it on a modded xbox360 right before my own eyes, as have others I know. your comments prove only one thing.........your not even a very good pirate it would seem.

liam82517

@Mondrath 2 points back at ya. 1. Im not American, and even if I was I fail to see how that would stop a game being leaked onto the internet for any and all to get. 2. IAM a scum bag pirate and Im calling you a liar because thats what you are. You are one of those little monkeys that bangs their drum even though you have no clue what you are talking about.

Mondrath

@liam82517 Two points: A) "liar, liar pants on fire!"??? Really??!! What are you, 10? B)Do some research before you accuse people erroneously. Just because you didn't see it in the states, doesn't mean that some scumbag pirate in Asia didn't nick the game and make a million copies of it.

@isshiah Yeah I understand.. for some reason i thought gamespot had it rated at T a day or two ago.. so I assumed it was for all. On the other hand though, it's nice that fellow gamers in Australia will be able to play it too.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, there was a fully working version of the game that was leaked and was playable on the xbox360. It was illegal of course (it was a copy that worked on modded machines), so I never checked it out but people I know who did play it said it rocked.

@Evilnator MA15+ is the highest rating my country has, at the moment. a teen rating would be PG or M.

Every time you move a project between development sites, the new team spends countless hours getting up to speed on the code, and loses large amounts of time. If this was originally slated for launch in 2011, I'd push that estimate back conservatively to 2012 now. Still looks like an interesting title, and one worth following.

cgi trailer with mediocre graphics and no real hint gameplay style, I'll wait until we've seen more.

I have big fears about games that disappear for so long.. Generally speaking they end up missing their chance to make an impression, and on their release they're a tad dated :/
