The Matrix is the Ultimate MMOG

Warner Bros., Monolith Productions and EON Entertainment are producing a massively multiplayer online video game based on the hugely successful "The Matrix" franchise, it was announced today by Kevin Tsujihara, Executive Vice President, Corporate Business Development & Strategy, Warner Bros.; Jason Hall, Chief Executive Officer, Monolith Productions; and EON Entertainment, a collaboration between the films' producers, Joel Silver, and the films' creators, writers and director, Larry and Andy Wachowski.

Able to accommodate tens of thousands of players in a single shared environment, the game will be a re-creation of the virtual world of The Matrix, employing cutting-edge 3-D graphics, networking and server technology. The game will combine the best elements of the action-adventure genre and character building/role playing games with the social interaction/community of an ongoing online game. Under the direction of Warner Bros., Monolith Productions and EON Entertainment will design the game using LithTech's Discovery System, a completely new set of tools and technology, including a new 3-D renderer and high-capacity server system, built to accommodate the unique challenges presented in the creation of this type of product.

"The Matrix" is a perfect property on which to base a massively multiplayer online game, said Tsujihara. This project will combine the online entertainment resources and expertise of Warner Bros. and AOL Time Warner with one of the most cutting-edge game developers in the world.

We know fans of the franchise are extremely dedicated and loyal and we intend to do everything we can to remain true to "The Matrix," while providing them with the ultimate online gaming experience, said Hall. Warner Bros. Pictures' The Matrix, released in 1999, took in more than $475 million in box office worldwide. The next two segments of the trilogy, The Matrix: Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions, are scheduled for release in 2003. Warner Bros. Online will premiere its new Matrix Web site on May 16, 2003, as the teaser trailer for the two upcoming films appears nationwide in theaters. www.thematrix.com will now be the official online source for all things The Matrix.

Its bad enough that people are getting addicted to everquest but the Matrix?! I think monolith should stick to other game projects cause this one has bomb written all over it. Plus it will be partly owned by aol so its likely aol will use every resource in their power to force users to play it constantly. Hell it might also link up with aol instant messenger and shitscape browser so you are always plugged into the matrix. Maybe aol should consider the fact that they are becoming more and more like the machine that the matrix represents. Now there is some food for thought??

Sme people are sad as f**k. I dont like to swear on post but just read above to see me justification. If Monolith want to make a game of this massively fun film then so be it. I wish them the very best. As for all of you wanrting to copy/download a game then you poeple have no right to critisize any game as (from the sounds of it) none of you have ever bought anything and therefore never contributed to the development of games. So you opinion is like an ass.Eveybody has got one but no one wants to hear it. Monolith. Do the best you can cos this one could run and run (notto mention potentially creating a new genre).This thing has a built in audience the likes of which these morons cannot even concieve.

Most of u asses are stupider than shit except for the anonymous guy and anybody that made sense or isnt trying to get the game illegaly. MMORPG's are making tons of money right now, with the Matrix being a perfect plot for one why not get into the action? Well the market will be flooded by next year with these new MMORPG's comin out. Some will remain but most will bankrupt. I think Ultima, Everquest, maybe World of Warcraft, and Star Wars MMORPG's are the only ones that will be true good MMORPGs. Everything will just be crap that has a good name that sells, like the Matrix. Hopefully Matrix will to be a good game because i am a fan of the movie and if this game gets some good reviews (and isn't a game with a name that sells...) i'll probably buy'er because it's true that the matrix is a great layout for a game.

How are they going to have bullet time in a multiplayer invironment?!?! Is everyones screen going to go slow at the point of one players bullet time?!?! Dont get me wrong its an awsome idea but it sounds like it will have lots of bugs to work out.

hey ... yes, i am a warez kiddie... so what? flame me! if these guys would make a free online game (paying for the game and the cdkey of course) .... it would be instant success ... i just don't play these online games, cuz of their outstanding price .... geez! it's crazy, i'm suprised people actually play everquest or anarchy online...what do u people think about this idea?

Every time someone dloads warez they f**k companies like Microsoft in the ass, which is a good thing. Dont knock warez, if you do you are very gay and probably a rich bastard who is twice as gay, and f**ks rent boys, do you like rent boys? no?... then u must like warez. Honestly, it is proven on a highly scientific level that warez haters like rent boys. Say u hate warez, see if i care, pay for ur games/OSes while the rest of us streight people who f**k women not rent boys get it fer free, see u pay for ur men, while we get our women for free, its the same thing. U buy a microsoft game, its just like you renting out a rent boy from the riches Gay pimp in town, its people like me who want to see those rich gay pimps die at the hands of Hetrosexuals who dont give their money to the filthy whore industry. Do you pay for sex? Do you pay for games? same thing. If you are really hard up you are allowed to pay for women but paying for men means u r gay for starters, it also means i hate you and ur mum sucked my balls. Do you like warez? Carefull now....
