Upper Deck, a global sports and entertainment brand, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have joined forces to launch a new collection of The Matrixinspired products!

The first product in the line is the Legendary Encounters: The Matrix board game, which will be available for fans to purchase in stores next year! Players can play as characters from The Matrix and fight against the others to save humankind. The box is intricately designed with the green-and-black color scheme from the movie, and illustrates cartoon-esque versions of each character. 

The set comes with 500 playable cards, a rule book, a playmat, three tokens, nine standees, and 60 dividers, which all come together to set players up for their next dangerous adventure. 1-5 players can play this game at once, and the game will take approximately 30-60 minutes to complete.

But if you weren’t at Gen Con, don’t worry — the game will be available very soon at upperdeckstore.com!
