WHAT: The Matrix Online: Update 54

The Matrix Online (MxO) adventure continues with Update 54, expanding the new player adventure series. The current experience ends with players at the Uriah SW hardline and now a new signpost NPC has been added near the hardline directing players to the Mars Industrial Storage Exile hideout. Those with a taste for adventure can follow the new adventure path and learn about Exile hideouts, RSI pills and what working for Merovingian is really like.

Also introduced with this update are two new reward items: the Industrial Fedora and the Headless Glasses. These rewards are for levels 5 and 7 respectively, with enhancements appropriate to those levels.

Update 54 also features a new danger, the headless NPC’s. These odd exiles have recently appeared inside Mars Industrial Storage, adding to the hazards and challenge players encounter in this area. Hold on to your head as these enemies are fierce!

You can see all this and get more information on the new reward items in Update 54 .

Jack in now! We’ll see you in The Matrix Online!
