One of the principle characters in The Matrix trilogy, Morpheus, has been eliminated during a live event in the series' massive multiplayer online game, The Matrix Online. As the story goes, after The Matrix Revolutions, man and machines lived in peace but Morpheus became obsessed with recovering Neo's body from its AI-controlled machine captors. The machines didn't respond, pushing Morpheus to set off a number of virus-encoded bombs throughout The Matrix. The machines retaliated by sending an Assassin after him. 1up.com reports "Bending the rules of The Matrix to its will, The Assassin eventually cornered Morpheus and ended his short-lived rebellion." In the game, players now have to find out what really caused the machines to take out Morpheus.
