I found this whilst looking round the matrix website,it sounds really cool :)

In 2004 the matrix will become a reality, as gamers everywhere will be able to log into the matrix online and continue the matrix film trilogy.

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 urban 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.


Gameplay Highlights

Dozens of weapons and martial arts maneuvers that capture the "wire fu" Matrix experience

Haven't checked the link, but will this be like a Matrix version of Galaxies?

In that, will they be wanting a subs fee for it? (damn you luca$harts)

EDIT: Hmmm, they aren't saying yet. It still sounds better than Galaxies though, I gotta say!

I refuse to play galaxies but this seems pretty sweet..... looks like it will be worth it.

Are there any good MMORPGs out there that are free?

Come on guys... there's going to be a fee. They're out for profit - entertaining the masses is a nice side effect.

What I find interesting is that it's set after The Matrix Revolutions, yet the Matrix still exists and the struggle continues... what does that say about the end of Revolutions?

well it means the battle never ended obviously, or that the matrix was remade (as revealed it has been many times in reloaded)

Actually, it does. There will be a fee. Check the FAQ.

I think it would be cool if it had a real world side...the real world being a Majestic (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/adventure/majestic/index.html) like simulation. Maybe even the possibility to hack into the matrix, sort of like the hack mode in Enter the Matrix.

Unfortunately they said on the site it will be inside the Matrix only :(

Yeah, it would be cool to have your own hovercraft and go kill sentinels and stuff. :D

I wonder how they're going to implement bullet-time in multiplayer :rolleyes: It's going to be a heck of a job to make it seem to slow down for you, and making it seem you're moving really fast for your opponents... :D

My guess is that if they implement it, instead of the world slowing down around you, you will just move much more quickly. Similar to the way force speed is handled in multiplayer JKII

Yeah. Its impossible to do it any other way.
