It’s a strange fact that a thing as common as ESRB rating can create a spark of awareness for gamers and writers. Such is the case with I Am Alive, a game that we haven’t heard anything about for a long while, till now.
I Am Alive was previously rated as M for Mature in June, which indicated that the project hadn’t been abandoned… yet. After that there was literally nothing said or shown regarding the game. However, now ESRB’s new listing for I Am Alive sheds further luminosity on the title.
The ESRB rating for I Am Alive is still the same, but the reason for the rating is now known. The game is a third-person action/adventure game about a man searching for his family in a post-apocalyptic world. Its M rating is for “Blood, Intense Violence, Sexual Themes, and Strong Language.”
Additionally, there have been indications that the game will feature melee combat and finishing moves, such as Quick-Time events that portray impaling, throat-slashing, pistol-whipping, and more.
This is the first time we’ve gotten such details since 2009, when Ubisoft announced the development duties would shift from Parris to Ubisoft Shanghai.
