About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'The Matrix Online' European Launch Date - Screens

by Judy on Feb. 2, 2005 @ 9:06 a.m. PST

Set in a virtual, persistent online universe in which millions of players around the globe can participate, The Matrix Online will feature cutting-edge graphics, real-time martial arts combat and a rich storyline that picks up where The Matrix Revolutions, the third chapter in The Matrix film trilogy, leaves off.

Players of The Matrix Online will inhabit an enormous urban sprawl, which spreads for miles in all directions. There are subways, nightclubs, skyscrapers, and dark alleys that all seem normal on the surface, but beneath this pedestrian exterior, a secret war is being waged for the survival of humanity and machine alike. Here, you and many operatives like yourself, will determine who shall inherit the earth.

Key features

  • Devastating martial arts manoeuvres and sneak attacks with dozens of weapons, created through BULLET TIMETM effects that are intelligently generated based on player moves and tactics
  • A full Rich World cityscape environment with traffic, living neighbourhoods, and breathtaking skylines immerses players in the most authentic Matrix MegaCity ever created (using Rich WorldTM technology)
  • A robust mission system offers players maximum re-playability and depth
  • Player-friendly and highly customisable skill/ability system that allows players to "download" the appropriate skills and abilities for their character each time they jack into the game
  • Plot lines by the creators of The Matrix (Wachowski's) continue the Matrix story where the movie trilogy leaves off and provides you with a deep insight into the world of the Matrix
