Pandora's Box was also released with some new story information, complete with new missions for characters, levels 35-50.

Our first offering of "Pandora's Box" content, an automatic update for all subscribers, reveals a new Matrix story designed for teams of characters from levels 35 through 50. The Archaeologist, who claims to be a collector of exotic objects, has appeared near the Mara Central hardline. Reports have reached him of mysterious artifacts appearing throughout the City: artifacts that appear to be alien to the Matrix simulation itself. Could they have anything to do with the sudden disappearance of one of the top researchers in the field?

Yes, new forces have invaded the Mega City. If you are powerful and clever enough to pursue them high and low throughout the City's three main districts, you will fight powerful new foes, explore previously unavailable areas, come face-to-face with major players in the Matrix's power-struggle, win extravagant new equippable items, and uncover a threat to the stability of the Matrix itself. Old enemies and allies--even near Mara Central--unveil new agendas, and you may glean new clues to the hidden past of some of the Matrix's most well-known personalities.

In order to solve the mystery, you must conquer four sequential adventure arcs, designed for teams of increasingly experienced players:
