The Live Events Team Preview

Posted by Alexander Chopra on Mar 30, 2005  | Comments

The Live Events Team Preview -

Aether, The Community Events Lead for The Matrix Online, has reported that The Live Events Team will be hosting a variety of events in game, ranging from chats with storyline characters, to different scavenger hunts, and even dueling tournaments.

Their full press review is below:

It has been a few weeks since we last had a chance to chat - and there is a world of information to share. Many of you may have read reports of a “Live Events Team” that is being created to support the story that makes up The Matrix Online experience. And we’ve been so busy running events, that we haven’t had the chance to give you the low-down before now!

So while we catch our breath, I’d like to fill you in on some of the details related to The Matrix Online Live Event Team.

First of all, there is always an event going on inside the Matrix. Every day, our Live Event Team is visiting every server, plotting and scheming along side players as they make organizational alliances, infiltrate opposing factions, and generally delve into the evolving story line of The Matrix Online. While I cannot confirm exactly what the major characters are up to... there are reports from all sides talking about secretive gatherings and clandestine cabals. Key players from all three of the major organizations, represented by Zion, Machines, and the Merovingian, appear to be taking steps to build their respective power bases. More than one redpill has reported a solicitation seeking support for a particular Organization’s social and political objectives.

The opportunity to interact with key figures within The Matrix Online story isn't reserved for one special group - our goal is to involve as many different people as possible in our live events. A lower level redpill fighting for Zion has just as much a chance to play a key role in the unfolding story as a higher level Merovingian faction leader.

Regardless of your affiliations with the Machines, the Merovingian, or the Zionites, everyone has the chance to interact with the story elements of The Matrix Online. Your guarantee of involvement is showing active interest in the storyline (I promise, it really is that simple). Although, applying ingenuity and creativity in your dealings amongst yourselves, and any key storyline figures, wouldn't hurt your chances either.

Beta testers will recall the dramatic close to our Beta test, an event I like to refer to as the “Eye-pocalypse”. If you weren’t there to witness it, you have no doubt heard the stories and seen the screenshots and video of the world altering events that unfolded over a span of four days. Redpills can expect to witness and participate (and maybe even.. cause?) events just as dramatic, but in an entirely different vein. But rest assured, major events will break out from time to time within the Mega City that will affect every single player in the game. While I can’t be too specific, I suspect something along those lines may show up in a week or two.

Certain aspects of the storyline will take place in-game, but there will be many different ways that a player can gather key pieces of the sthe features integrated into our game is AIM, or AOL Instant Messenger. Using that service, players may be able to chat with storyline characters that cannot be seen in-game (Tyndall was born in Zion, Link as well). In addition to chat, there are rumors that some players have already begun receiving urgent requests for assistance from Morpheus and directives from the Merovingian via email.

In addition to the aforementioned methods of interaction, we will also be utilizing other internet resources, allowing players to come upon secret documents or clues that will help them dig even deeper into the layers of fiction within the world of The Matrix Online.

Players will have the opportunity not only to witness events, but they will actually have the chance to drive the plot. The thing to remember is that The Matrix Online is truly the fourth installment of the celebrated Matrix Saga- only this time around you are the star, working in concert with (and sometimes directly opposed to) thousands of other people, from all over the world.

In addition to providing stories that support the rich backdrop of the Matrix, our event team will be supporting the community events as well… From scavenger hunts to dueling tournaments, the event team will work to help support our player’s endeavors with just as much energy as the overarching storyline.

The Live Events Team has a lot of momentum, and we are very excited to work alongside the Dev Team to bring you some of the most immersive, entertaining, surprising and revolutionary MMO environments to date- a place where you can truly experience life as a redpill in Mega City.
