Relive the world of the One in The Matrix Awakens!

Apart from the upcoming 4th installment in the franchise, we’re getting a new teaser of a game in the Matrix universe. Once more fresh from The Game Awards 2021 is The Matrix Awakens. Relive the world of Neo, Trinity, and the gang in an even more realistic manner than it was years ago with Enter the Matrix.

Built on Unreal Engine 5 (UE 5), The Matrix Awakens is a game demo showcasing the power of the next-gen game engine. Due to being the next leap in gaming, the demo is only available on next-gen consoles. Meaning consoles such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. On start up, a cinematic greets testers featuring exceptionally realistic digital humans. Following this is a fast-paced car chase and third-person shooter action.

After that, players can explore an open-world city similar to what we have in the Matrix movies. It also showcases the power of UE 5 as the world constantly evolves and changes. This is with or without any player interaction. Somewhat mimicking the life of digital humans inside the Matrix. If you own either or both a PlayStation 5 or Xbox X/S then experience a taste of UE 5 by downloading the demo below:
