Ubisoft's Post-Apocalyptic "I Am Alive" Coming to the PC

By - Source: Gamespot | B 32 comments

Earlier this year, Ubisoft launched its post-apocalyptic action-survival game I Am Alive on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Now, the well received game is making its way over to the PC with upgraded graphics and two new gaming modes. Making its way over via Ubishop and Steam, I Am Alive will have its worldwide PC debut on September 13.

I Am Alive PC Trailer

The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic America which has been demolished by an unspecified "Event". Players will take on the role of a male survivor looking for his daughter and wife in their hometown of Haventon. All while trying to escape toxic ashes and other savage survivors.

The new "Easy" mode lets players retry an infinite number of times, and also features a smoother introduction to the game. The other new mode, "Replay", lets gamers revisit all of their favorite missions to unlock additional secrets and treasures they missed the first time around. I Am Alive will be available for $19.99 on Ubishop, Steam and a number of other digital retailers.

    This game will be rather popular as it goes well with the mood that many have had these past few years.

    kcorp2003If your a Steam user you have no right to complain about Ubisoft's DRM. But if you are then you might want to keep on eye on GOG.com they might have a DRM free version.

    Valve games dont require always online nor they have limited ammount of installs.

    So you're not going to buy the game because you dislike a part of the product but you're going to pirate it? Why don't you buy it and download the DRM-free scene version.

    No, you won't do that because you're an idiot who thinks he's entitled to everything. You just want something to complain about so you blame the DRM. You'd pirate it even if it was DRM-free.

    Asshole.

    Don't get your hopes up, it's Ubisoft after all. On the other hand, I'm glad I don't care for this one anyway.

    If your a Steam user you have no right to complain about Ubisoft's DRM.

    But if you are then you might want to keep on eye on GOG.com they might have a DRM free version.

    PennanenSo i should keep handing them money even if i dont want their spyware drm?


    Absolutely not. If you don't like a product, here's a thought: DON'T BUY IT.

    But just because you don't like certain aspects of the product does not give you the right to steal it either.

    Im not stealing anything, no one loses their game. Also its not a lost sale if im not buying it to begin with.

    If ubisoft treats everyone, even customers as their enemies, might aswell be the enemy then.

    All Valve games [publish] probably requires always online. But 3rd party games in Steam, some may have the option not to have DRM (however i'm not sure.) So far all the games i bought requires an internet connection. However you are right about the limited amount of installs.


    In recent news about Steam coming to linux spur anxiety of the founding fathers of the Free Software movement - Richard M Stallman called it

    ‘unethical’. “They deny freedom to their users. If you want freedom, one requisite for it is not having non-free programs on your computer.”

    correction. Steam is DRM. The game itself doesnt need its own drm if its on steam steam takes care of that already. you need to be logged in to play. you can only log in from one location at a time and it knows this with internet connection even if your playing in offline mode.

    the way the steam client itself works it basically adds DRM artificially to any game you purchase on steam, making sure its 1 legit license per person. its just that as far as DRM's go its probably the most flexible
    that's why we can tolerate it. and all the benefits you get from the steam client outweigh any of the drawbacks


    However all distributions store should follow GOG.com, they keep all the community stuff on the website. no client, they dont have their own DRM on their games. you can download a game as many times and install it as many times as you want, its yours to do with as you please

    *Internet connection goes down because some asshole tore out the cable amplifiers to recycle them for cash*


    No problem, I'll just...

    This game cannot run without internet connection. Please try again.

    Hopefully it won't have the Ubi-DRM on the steam version. Also I have a feeling this game will be crap. Ubisoft, "It didn't succeed in consoles, maybe we can make a buck feeding this trash to the PC." PC first or who cares? The PC is the hardest market so act like it instead of giving us a boring linear shooter with an overused storyline and poor graphics for a PC game.

    Yo don't know how cable internet works if you think a Cable Amplifier is helping. The only reason you would need a Cable Amplifier for a Cable Internet connection is if the modem is more then 250 feet from the demarcation. The cable amplifier would then need to be placed near the demarcation. If its less then that, or if the amplifier is after the demark, then you are simply amplifying noise which is pretty useless. If there are more then 3 splits on the line, then its just a bad wiring configuration.
