The build-up to the new Matrix movie is heating up with the release date coming ever so close, and now, popular gaming platform Epic Games has announced the release of the Matrix Awakens experience on the next-gen gaming consoles – The Playstation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S.
This free-to-play concept, powered by Unreal Engine 5is a technical demo concept set within the world of Warner Bros’ The Matrix. Written and cinematically directed by Lana Wachowski, it features Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity and—in a reality-flipping twist—also playing themselves.
The project reunited the ensemble cast that was part of the seminal The Matrix trilogy, including James McTeigue, Kym Barrett, John Gaeta, Kim Libreri, Jerome Platteaux, George Borshukov, and Michael F Gay, in collaboration with teams across both Epic Games and partners, such as SideFX, Evil Eye Pictures, The Coalition, WetaFX (formerly Weta Digital), and many others.
