Matrix: second trailer and gameplay trailer?

It seems that Monday, December 6, 2021 is Matrix Day. And no, this is not an apocryphal and critical Constitution Day reference, so I pray that it is not interpreted in this key. When I say that it is the day of The Matrix, I mean it in direct relation to what awaits us in the coming days in relation to the news of the saga created 22 years ago by the Wachowsky sisters, and that they promise us a happy or terrible Christmas to the fans of the saga, depending on what we do not find.

We’ve been talking about Matrix 4 for several years already, although it wasn’t until early this 2021 that we learned that its name is Matrix Resurrections and we had to wait until September to see the first trailer with which, like it was more than predictable, we all let the imagination fly a little, trying to interpret all the information that it was possible to extract from each frame. Since then, and with a bittersweet mixture of expectation and fear of disappointment, we are counting the days until the next December 22, the day the Matrix Revolutions will debut in theaters.

So, a little over two weeks from the finish, Warner Bros. has decided to lengthen our teeth a little further, with the premiere of the second and possibly last trailer for the film until its premiere. A trailer that, for many, will be the confirmation of the theories that they have already developed with the first (this is my case), which will have left others with even more doubts, also with its inevitable dressing of fan-service, and that in any case it will make, for a good deal, the time which separates us from December 22nd pass a little slowly, like at bullet time, only without having to dodge the bullets.

Without going into an in-depth analysis, the trailer clarifies that after his confrontation with Matriz in Zero One, Neo was reintroduced, as was Trinity, a moment used by the machine to move into its seventh iteration., in which the terms of the peace agreement between Neo and the machine were not respected. The allusions to loops at the start reinforce the theory that Neo will have to start over. Now, even with all of the parallels, it looks like the story will be different from what we experienced in 1999.

In some statements over the past few weeks, something has also been reinforced that shouldn’t surprise us: Matrix Resurrections will be full of metaphors, some simpler and some more complex. And as always happens in these cases, the worldview of each person who sees it will be a key factor in their interpretation. In other words, you can either enjoy an action movie again or spend many hours trying to unravel all the hidden meanings of the story. This is something that Resurrections could bring back the spirit of the original, compared to Reload and Revolutions, which are both much denser.

The Matrix Awakens Unreal Engine 5

For a few days he had been talking about a version linked to Matrix for new generation consoles, and eventually ceased to be an open secret and became something officially confirmed: Warner Bros., Epic Games, and the film crew. worked on an experiment built with Unreal Engine 5, the long-awaited new graphics engine and game development environment from Epic Games.

This demo, which will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S | X, It can already be preloaded on the consoles, although it will still be necessary to wait three days and a few hours for the date and time of publication of this news, until we can take advantage of it, as can be seen on his website. And while it’s only 15 seconds of video, what we can see is most promising. Check out Neo’s resolution:

This, of course, makes us dream of a future game based on the film. However, that is only a possibility at the moment. While waiting to see the demo which will be presented at dawn from Thursday to Friday, we will have no idea if this is just a specific action, developed to promote both Matrix Resurrections and Unreal Engine 5. or if, on the contrary, it is simply the advancement of a title that is yet to come. And I think, if only to cushion the work that character modeling must have taken of them, they should take advantage of it in a full game. And when I say I believe, obviously I say I hope.

In all cases, What did you think of the two advances? Are you going to download and try the demo next Friday? Are you planning to go to the Matrix Resurrections premiere? Or, on the contrary, have you decided to deflate expectations to avoid the risk of a big disappointment when the preview arrives?
