To coincide with the release of The Matrix Resurrections in theaters and on HBO Max, three special Matrix elements have been added to the Fortnite video game on Xbox consoles, Windows PC and all other supported platforms.
The first item is an emote based on Neo’s famous ball maneuver in the first Matrix movie (see top image). It looks pretty cool and also offers a preview of the upcoming Winter Midas skin.
The second Matrix element added to Fortnite is an emote inspired by Trinity’s kick, also from the first movie.
The third and final element of The Matrix, for now, is a wrapper for the various weapons and vehicles in Fortnite that will cover them with the green computer code seen in the Matrix movies.
Surprisingly, no Matrix character outfits or skins have been added or announced, which is odd considering the popularity of Neo, Trinity, and all of the other characters in the Matrix movie series and their suitability. for a video game like Fortnite that involves guns. Lots of guns.
It is possible that characters inspired by Matrix Resurrections and the other films will be added after Resurrections opens in all major markets around the world. If so, fans should expect more Matrix content around Boxing Day or December 26. Nothing has been announced however.
It’s also worth mentioning that a Glider based on Sentinel robots from The Matrix is ââavailable for free to all players right now in the special Christmas / Winterfest tab of the in-game menu. To claim the glider, all you have to do is to do is open the gift with the Matrix wrapping code.
