In the lead up to the release of the fourth entry in the Matrix franchise, The Matrix Resurrections, a new demo of Unreal Engine’s impressive capabilities has been released called The Matrix Awakens, which simulates photo-realistic environments and replacement digital avatars for the actors playing iconic characters.
