ARE you ready to take the red pill?

Starting October 19, 2004, the Matrix Online will start offering authentication keys to the first 5,000 beta testers. Through FilePlanet (www.fileplanet.com), Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Sega will allow 20,000 people worldwide a glimpse of the much-talked about game inspired by the movie.

The online game is, however, only available to FilePlanet subscribers.

Starting October 19, FilePlanet will begin releasing the first 5,000 authentication keys to subscribers on a first-come, first-serve basis in a span of a month.

Once the keys run out for each week, the subscribers will need to check back the following week to attempt access into the sprawling world of the Matrix.

The FilePlanet website indicated that subscribers that are accepted into the beta test will be able to play the online Matrix game, and experience first-hand the sprawling urban landscape of subways, nightclubs, skyscrapers and dark alleys.

"You'll be part of the secret war that goes on underneath the pedestrian surface-a war of survival and control between Machines, Zionists, and Exiles," the website indicated.
