What is The Matrix Awakens

Dave writes: "The Matrix Awakens - full title, ‘The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience’ - sits somewhere in the Venn diagram of free, playable demo, advert and technical showcase. That might sound off-putting or baffling, but you shouldn’t be deterred: this is a milestone piece of software that you should immediately boot up if you have next gen hardware, specifically Xbox Series X|S or a PlayStation 5."

It's a great Playable Unreal Engine 5 tech demonstration!

I tried it last night on PS5 and yes - it is pretty spectacular!

First thing I did was take to the sky and try to go underwater. The city is amazing, especially when viewed from above, but no deep water diving.

Quick question. Is there a full game coming or is it just a test?

badboyz09158d ago

Gameplay was rails. But the engine was amazing.

This is a tech demo so I'd be surprised if full game is coming. This tech demo demonstrate how unreal engine works and what can be possible. So it's a good start for future games that will use that engine.

Probably not, most likely it was to do two things demonstrate the UE5 engine first hand in a interactive way and also hype the upcoming Matrix film.

So you know how marketing for movies have done VR kind of playable teasers to generate hype and interest in the movie? This is that, it’s a playable teaser of sorts to get you vested in the movie. There’s no game coming out, this is just the future of digital marketing.

That would be awesome if they were making a full triple-A Matrix game with UE5. This demo is incredible.

I never understood why they dont release public versions of tech demos like this. Like why cant we get the lumen and the land of nanite demo? Just seems like a series of missed opportunities to me

What is real? How do you define real?
