Irrational Games’ head Ken Levine has confirmed that not only will a trailer for his team’s next game, codenamed Project Icarus, be officially unveiled during a press event tomorrow in New York City, but those in attendance will also be treated to a live demo of the game. I know. Bunch of jerks, right?
The trailer will be available on the game’s website at 1:45pm EST on August 12, 15 minutes before the embargo lifts for news coverage. Levine explained in an update on Irrational’s site that the timing of the trailer’s release is intentional, adding, “Trust me, there’s a reason.”
Levine also confirmed that the demo footage from the press event tomorrow will be released “in the coming weeks.”
