The Matrix Awakens was one of the announcements of The Game Awards (TGA) 2021 event and, during the presentation, showed the photorealistic experience that the Unreal Engine 5 engine is capable of providing. Now they’ve made a video comparing the graphics and footage from the movie and it’s impressively realistic.
The Matrix Awakens replicates original footage from the Matrix franchise movies using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine. To make a comparison, the YouTube channel “ElAnalistaDeBits” made a video showing the differences between the images — and it’s admirable how, each time, the differences get smaller.
Although not a complete game, the interactive experience shows how powerful the next-gen consoles are and attests that most current titles haven’t yet reached the graphics power that the devices offer — as we can see above, the visual is almost as good as reality.
Available for testing
The Matrix Awakens is an interactive experience to demonstrate Unreal Engine 5, so it’s not exactly a franchise game. However, if you want to play games and view the photorealistic visuals, just download it from the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S stores.
The feature film The Matrix Resurrections is scheduled to be released in Brazilian theaters on December 22, with the return of director Lana Wachowski and actors Keanu Reeves (Neo) and Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity).
