Following a tease earlier this week, Canadian actors Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss appeared at The Game Awards to formally unveil The Matrix Awakens.
Now available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, it’s a Matrix gaming experience that features highly photorealistic visuals produced entirely within Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5. In it, Reeves and Moss reprise their respective Matrix roles of Neo and Trinity. The clip that we got showed Neo and Trinity shooting at enemies while driving.
