Today was a big news day for fans of Ivo VanDijk’s rock opera video game, Karmaflow. Team Karmaflow shared a new trailer, announced that the Karmaflow band will be on tour later this year, and after the game launches fans can enjoy a live version of the Karmaflow rock opera in 2015.

The above trailer showcases even more of the music in the game and gives an extensive look at one of the worlds players will be exploring. Aside from the Karma Keeper flying around, there were no major gameplay updates we could spot, but it did give us a solid piece of music that will be included in the game and shows how the story is told through the music.

One of the things that makes Karmaflow is its strong musical background. Because so many musicians are coming together to make a rock opera, they can do things that other games are normally unable to do, like go on tour like a band. Team Karmaflow is capitalizing on this and is taking the Karmaflow band on tour starting in October 2014.

According to the announcement, “Karmaflow in Concert will bring you highlights from the soundtrack of Karmaflow: The Rock Opera Videogame, and will be joined by an alternating cast of singers consisting of Mariangela Demurtas(Tristania), Daniel de Jongh (Textures), Mark Jansen(Epica), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy) and more!”

To celebrate the launch of the game, the entire project will come together and perform Karmaflow in Concert: The Rock Opera, a live version of the rock opera game, at a two-day event starting on January 18, 2015. It will even feature the world-renowned Metropole Orchestra live on-stage.

Karmaflow is currently scheduled for a PC release date in January of 2015.
