The Matrix Awakens going to sleep. Epic’s visually impressive tech demo (it’s also sort of an open-world mini-game) for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S will be delisted on July 9th. the company announced through his website. If you have already added the free game to your game library, you can continue to download it after July 9th.
From a visual fidelity point of view, it is easy to make The Matrix Awakens is the most realistic game available right now. The first one was released last December, just when the fourth Matrix the movie hit the big screen The Matrix Awakens ostensibly a demo of Epic’s own Unreal 5 game development engine. While this is just a brief snippet of “gameplay” in quotes, the demo comes close to the textbook definition of photorealism.
His game faces, including faces Matrix stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are almost indistinguishable from the real people they are based on. Walking the streets of a metropolis is like walking through the financial district of any major American metropolis. You can fiddle with lighting. You can drive cars on city highways (which, unfortunately, for residents Matrix-land, was not demolished). You can even change the population density. It’s not overly heavy on “fun” gameplay – it relies more on quick events than anything else – and isn’t really connected to the wider Matrix it’s all effective, but it’s a stunning demonstration of the next generation of precision in video games.
In April, during a live broadcast of State of Unreal intended to mark the official full release of Unreal 5, Epic has lifted the hood on exactly what’s possible. To my untrained eye, this is all very impressive, gradually bringing video games closer to the uncanny valley. And although The Matrix Awakens won’t be much longer, we’ll soon see other, supposedly more complete Unreal 5 games. This engine is being used for a number of high-budget tents on the horizon, including new entries in Crystal dynamics tomb Raider as well as CD Projekt Red’s Witcher.
