The Matrix was unique in the MMO market for two major reasons: First, was the leveling and skill system. Unlike standard MMO's, where you pick a class and then delve into specializations within that class, The Matrix had a modular system that gave every player access to all of the skills, but only allowed them to pick a certain number of skills in a certain progression at a time. This allowed characters to make unique classes by mixing and matching abilities and weapons and was fairly intuitive despite sounding incredibly complex.

Second, was the Live Events. Unlike other MMO events, this one had a specific team designed to act out the roles of the minor characters and contacts during a event.

* HeyItsThatVoice: In cutscenes, Niobe is voiced by Creator/GinaTorres, who played the minor character Cas (Dozer's widow) in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' and ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions''.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Early pre-release material hinted at expansions to other parts of the city, swords, explorable hovercrafts, and cars. None of those even remotely happened.
** Once Sony pulled the plug on the game, the de facto writer released a rough outline for what would've happened if the game had an operating budget above that of a high schooler's allowance.

''Film/TheMatrix Online'' was a MMORPG that was made by Warner Bros. Entertainment and Creator/MonolithProductions and was later bought out by SOE. It began beta testing in June 2004 and went live in March 2005 for North American users, and April 2005 for European users. It was eventually shut down in July of 2009, due to low sales.
