After it was spotted on the PlayStation Store backend last week, The Matrix Awakens: An Unreal Engine 5 Experience is now available for pre-load on PS5 for free. The application will be revealed later this week at The Game Awards, with everyone able to actually launch it and dive into The Matrix in Unreal Engine 5 starting this Friday. It weighs in at roughly 25GB, so be sure your PS5 SSD has some spare space. A teaser trailer has also been released featuring Keanu Reeves.
The PS Store description reveals more about the experience: "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." It's all designed to provide a "glimpse into the future of interactive storytelling and entertainment with UE5".
Pitched as a tech demo, you'll be taking in what's on-screen rather than being left impressed with any interactivity. "Step into the world of one of the most iconic action franchises ever made."
