I Am Alive details leaked by ESRB, contains swear words

Ubisoft's troublesome title still showing signs of life

I Am Alive has been officially rated by ESRB, which also gives the troublesome Ubisoft title a detailed description.


It marks the first official thing we've heard of I Am Alive since its classification in Australia.

The only I Am Alive footage we've seen recently has been courtesy of a few leaks.

The last official showing of the game came in the form of an I Am Alive trailer way back in June last year.

Here's what ESRB had to say after giving the Ubi title a 'Mature' rating:

"This is an action game in which players assume the role of a man who must find his family in a post-apocalyptic world. From a third-person perspective, players traverse through city ruins and use a machete to kill human enemies in melee-style combat.

"Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, slashing sounds, and cries of pain; characters emit brief splashes of blood when hit. Players have the ability to kill or knock unconscious wounded/vulnerable enemies via finishing moves (e.g., throat slashing, impaling, pistol-whipping); these scenes are highlighted by close-up camera angles and increased player control (e.g., on-screen prompts with button-press sequences).

"During the course of the game, players encounter women who can be saved from nearby enemies; sexual mistreatment is sometimes implied in the dialogue (e.g., "These guys kept me as their pet, or mascot, or something.").

"One sequence depicts the background silhouette of a man fondling and threatening a captured female survivor; the exchange includes phrases such as 'Do you hear me? Don't touch me!' and 'Don't be like that. You know I can make your life a lot easier if you would just cooperate.'

"The words "p*ssy," "f**k," and "sh*t" can be heard in the dialogue."
