JJ Abrams And Gabe Newell To Deliver D.I.C.E. Keynote

Posted January 28, 2013 - By Adam Rosenberg

Star Wars VII Has Its Director: J.J. Abrams!

The 2013 D.I.C.E. (Design Innovate Communicate Entertain) Summit kicks off on February 6 with Valve's Gabe Newell and recently confirmed Star Wars director J.J. Abrams handling the opening keynote duties, a press release confirms. The pair will speak on the subject of "Storytelling Across Platforms: Who Benefits Most, the Audience or the Player?"

The two guys have almost certainly worked together or at least been in contact before, with the PC version of Portal 2 having featured an interactive trailer for Abrams' then-upcoming film, Super 8. The trailer was built using the Source Engine, offering players an opportunity to explore the interior of the movie's crashing train.

Newell will take the stage at D.I.C.E. once again the following day, delivering Thursday's conference keynote covering "A View On Next Steps."
