Matrix: Today (02), some members of Reddit discovered in the PSN database that there is a record and image of The Matrix Awakens, an interactive experience related to the new film that will have the Unreal Engine 5 as its graphics engine, which is still in development.
The content of this app is not yet known, but The Matrix Awakens has been listed for the PlayStation 5 only and may be revealed soon as it is on PSN at the moment (albeit privately). Check the image:
Although movie apps in online game stores are not a big news (Spider-Man and other features had experiences for PSVR, for example), what is striking is to see that The Matrix Awakens will run on Unreal Engine 5, which even now there was only one reveal video and few details. Recently, Epic Game announced that Chapter 3 of Fortnite will be made in the fifth version of the graphics engine, bringing significant improvements in visuals.
Therefore, we will have to wait for more information. Matrix Resurrections hits theaters Dec. 22, 2021, and The Matrix Awakens may come sometime close to the feature’s release only on the PS5 (and possibly Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, the Xbox Series X and S). Will we see Unreal Engine 5 in action for the first time?
