Amazing End of Beta Event

Posted by Craig McGregor on Mar 16, 2005  | Comments

Amazing End of Beta Event -

Warner Bros. Interactive ended the beta test yesterday for The Matrix Online - and they concluded it with a massive event filled with action and live major characters from the movie appearing and interacting with players. Morpheus, Niobe, Seraph, and the Merovingian all made appearances in the game giving speeches to players and rallying them to their side. Niobe was even spotted going into battle against many Agents.

The Machines turned the sky red and filled it with all-seeing eyes. They then proceeded to hunt down INDIVIDUAL players, calling them out by name and chasing them down for deletion. Other players would rally around the named and try to defend them from the Agents.

Later in the day, Agents began spreading a Fire Virus fire that would infect all players.

Finally, the Machines succeeded in rebooting the Matrix after crumpling all players like aluminum cans in a final blow to Zion.

The entire event was reported on LIVE by Radio Free Zion. They had their DJs spread through the Matrix and would report on Agent movements, player uprisings, Morpheus sightings, and Fire Virus infestations.
