The Game Awards: Playable UE5 demo The Matrix Awakens now available

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss appeared on The Game Awards to present a new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections, as well as The Matrix Awakens, a playable Unreal Engine 5 experience.

Leaked in the run up to The Game Awards, The Matrix Awakens is now available to download for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

A playable tech demo using the new Unreal Engine 5, the trailer revealed by Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss showed a chase sequence full of action, while not revealing too much about the plot of the sequence itself. 

While it's hard to go by a trailer, the demo is impressive - it's difficult to differentiate the reality of the Matrix with such lighting effects, for instance. However, it does seem to have a bit of trouble when it comes to frame rates.

According to the demo's official announcement, The Matrix Awakens is huge:

"The city comprises seven million instanced assets, made up of millions of polygons each. There are seven thousand buildings made of thousands of modular pieces, 45,073 parked cars (of which 38,146 are drivable), over 260 km of roads, 512 km of sidewalk, 1,248 intersections, 27,848 lamp posts, and 12,422 manholes. Nanite intelligently streams and processes those billions of polygons, rendering everything at film quality, super fast."
