Ubisoft’s I Am Alive has been rated by the ESRB, even though no-one has heard anything about the game for well over a year.
It’s odd then that this ESRB content summary popped up and it certainly suggests that we will be hearing a lot more on this game very soon.
In the meantime we do have some info from the ESRB to go on, which says the game “is an action game in which players assume the role of a man who must find his family in a post-apocalyptic world.”
The rating also suggests the action takes place “from a third-person perspective,” with players traversing through city ruins and using a machete to kill human enemies in melee-style combat. Nice.

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.
