We reported it last week a rumor, but today we're bringing you the official word: Ubisoft announced a new title from Jade Raymond, the genius behind Assassin's Creed! I Am Alive is a survival-horror game set in post apocolypse Chicago.
Ubisoft describes the game thusly:
"When Chicago is left in ruins and the cause of the devastation is unknown, players will be challenged to think, react and take risks that will directly affect themselves and those around them."
"Ubisoft continues to create new experiences for players and I Am Alive will appeal to anyone that enjoys a thrilling journey," said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer, at Ubisoft. "The game will offer a rich palette of emotions while challenging players to make life-changing decisions."
Look for it this spring on "current gen" systems. (They probably mean the PS3 and the 360, and maybe the Wii.) Keep checking back here for a look at the trailer.
