Ubisoft's "Encounters" trailer for I Am Alive has what seems to be the protagonist giving advice on life in a dog-eat-dog world. "People more than dust are the most dangerous thing you're going to encounter," and the ways to deal with them are numerous.

I Am Alive clearly rewards players for the use of cunning over brawn, as even an empty gun intimidates a trio of machete-wielders into backing down. The bow offers a deadly and silent alternative with recyclable ammo, though you probably can't do much bluffing with an empty one: "Dude… there's just no arrow there."

Be sure to check out the positive impressions of the game from our own Kirk Hamilton.
