Ubisoft's I Am Alive made the waves a couple of years back when it was announced that Jade Raymond, producer of Assassin's Creed, was working on it. Since then, very little word has come out about the game—until now, that is.

Today, Ubisoft revealed that I Am Alive is set for a winter release on the PlayStation Network and XBLA. It presumably follows in the footsteps of From Dust and not have a physical edition.

I Am Alive puts you in the shoes of a man who seeks to find his wife and daughter following a devastating earthquake that leaves the city of Chicago in ruins. He must find his way back to the town of Haventon amidst the chaos.

You must survive the environment and defend himself against other stragglers who challenge you for what limited supplies you can find. The game's combat system will allow you to intimidate your enemies by scaring them off with your weapon or use the environment to your advantage.

"We know people have been waiting for this game to arrive, and we believe it's going to be worth the wait," said Ubisoft's Adam Novickas.

"I Am Alive presents a unique take on the post-apocalyptic, survival genre by creating more complex and emotional situations for the player."

A video of the game can be seen below.
