The Matrix Online

The Matrix Online (MxO) is a MMOG where tens of thousands of players jack into the Matrix world at once to take an active role in continuing the saga of The Matrix movie trilogy. Developed by Monolith Productions in conjunction with the Wachowski Brothers, creators of The Matrix trilogy, the game aims to be a re-creation of the virtual world of the Matrix, employing cutting-edge 3-D graphics, networking and server technology. Gameplay in The Matrix Online is based on intricate and exciting "wire-fu" combat, an extensive mission structure, social interaction and a completely customizable skill and ability system. Enter this intense virtual world and become a warrior, information broker, hacker, or even AI sympathizer, participating in an epic struggle for the survival of humanity and machine alike.

The Matrix Online has a unique class system. Players can load abilities they have either purchased or produced (by the Coder class, known ingame as coding) at Hardlines, provided they have enough memory and the abilities that precede the loading one. These abilities can then be switched out at a Hardline at a moment's notice. This leads to a very flexible class
system, without players being stuck in one class.

The 3 main archetypes are Hacker, Coder, and Operative. They are similar to the classes Mage, Crafter, and Fighter in other MMORPGs. These classes then each branch out into sub-classes, with Coder, for example being divided into Programmer (Out of battle item and ability maker) and Code Shaper (creates sims to fight with, similarities to a necromancer/summoner in other MMOs).
