"Get ready for a glimpse into the future of interactive storytelling and entertainment with UE," or so goes the tagline for The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience. Which is coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S this Friday alongside The Game Awards broadcast.
Created by members of the original movie team including Lana Wachowski along with Epic Games and partners, The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience is a wild ride into the reality-bending universe of The Matrix that features performances by Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.
As per above this new interactive experience was created to celebrate the upcoming release of The Matrix Resurrections, the new film in the iconic sci-fi series -- the first since 2003. Having a game-style tie-in makes sense too as the second and third films in the series paved the way for Enter The Matrix (2003), The Matrix: Path of Neo (2005) and The Matrix Online (2005). Not to mention a very cool slice of anime with The Animatrix and other expanded universe tie-ins.
Weirdly, this new Matrix and Epic Games crossover will be a console exclusive, with no word of a potential PC version. The good news is that you can pre-install it now on PS5 and Xbox -- head here for the links.
