I am Alive PC release announced by Ubisoft

Ubisoft announced today in a press release that their survival horror title I am Alive will be expanding to PC later this year. The PC release will also introduce two new modes to the experience: Easy Mode and Replay Mode.

The former, as you might have guessed, aims to make the experience a bit more pleasant, allowing the player infinite retries and a smoother introduction to the experience. While Replay Mode allows players to replay levels to seek out new secrets and hidden items.

Originally released on Xbox Live Arcade earlier this year in March and introduced players to a very different kind of survival horror than the Resident Evil-esque fare the industry grew up on. Though occasionally frustrating and even dull, we found it to be a worthwhile experiencethanks mostly to how unique and unforgiving and realistic it is.

The announcement comes just a day after Ubisoft announced that their piracy rate on PC is close to 95%. Apparently, that astounding rate still isn't harming their ability to do business on the platform.
