CARY – Can’t wait to see Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss and others in “The Matrix Resurrections” or get a taste of what’s to come from video games exploring the coming metaverse virtual world? Then Epic Games and partners have something for you to “experience.”
The Cary-based video game and entertainment technology company worked with members of the movie team, utilizing Epic’s latest Unreal Engine 5, to produce “The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience.”
The “experience” was formally released early Monday, although leakers on the web got a head start over the weekend.
“Get ready for a glimpse into the future of interactive storytelling and entertainment with UE5 in this free, boundary-pushing cinematic and real-time tech demo,” Epic and partners say.
Epic – the publisher of the globally popular Fortnite – calls the demo “a wild ride into the reality-bending universe of ‘The Matrix’ that features performances by Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.”
The formal launch of the “Experience” is set to take place during The Game Awards show coming up on Dec. 9.
