The Matrix Awakens PS5

Unreal Engine 5's impressive The Matrix Awakens demo will be delisted from the PS Store this coming Saturday. You'll still be able play it if you redeem it before the weekend's expiration date, but anyone who forgets to will lose out forever.

A notice on the official website says: "The UE5 tech demo will only be available in stores until July 9. Download it before that date and you’ll still be able to access the demo going forward—or re-download it if you’ve deleted it from your console." The demo allowed you to explore a vast city space in Unreal Engine 5 with the theming of The Matrix Resurrections and take part in an interactive cutscene.

In our The Matrix Awakens Hands On article, we called it an unreal demonstration of PS5's power. "This isn’t a game, of course, it’s not intended to be – it’s a demonstration of what’s to come. And if you’re yet to be wowed by a game’s presentation on the PS5, then we’ll be flabbergasted if this doesn’t leave you starry-eyed. The future is bright, folks."
