Matrix stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will present at The Game Awards next week, adding to the already star-packed cast. They will join fellow actors Simu Liu and Laura Bailey, as well as ex-Nintendo Reggie Fils-Aime in presenting duties at the show.
The announcement comes from Geoff Keighley himself, and marks the first big gaming appearance from Reeves since his famous E3 2019 presentation. In what must have been a bitter tug of war over what gaming event gets the actor next, it looks like The Game Awards is the winner.
In a win for
2000s-era bisexuals sci-fi fans everywhere, Reeves and Moss are set to star in Matrix sequel Resurrections later this month. But thanks to a recent leak, we know that the two are probably not appearing at the awards show to promote a new trailer for the film.
The Matrix Awakens is an upcoming "Unreal Engine 5 Experience" that will likely be unveiled at the showcase. We don't know much about title, only finding out about its existence due to an early PSN listing. It will also apparently be a PS5 exclusive.
The Game Awards kicks off next Thursday, and Keighley is remaining tight-lipped on what we can expect. While the titular awards are the big pull, many fans will be tuning in for the game announcements – which we can apparently expect about 40 to 50 of. One thing we are getting a lot of is big names – on top of the celebrity presenters we already mentioned, there will be music performances from Sting and Imagine Dragons.
Back on the actual gaming front, we already know that a bunch of Xbox demos will be shadow dropped during the event. Early listing on the Microsoft store shows a bunch of games with "TGA21" trials, confirming that we will indeed get some video games in between our numerous celebrity appearances. Other than that, all we know is that there will be around ten world premieres.
