Age of Empires IV will only be released this fall (release is expected on October 28), but a page with a description of the game that suddenly appeared on Steam revealed more details about it. The leak was quickly found and fixed, but this did not prevent the spread of screenshots and new data on the Web.

So, according to the official description (and it was hardly possible to publish another on Steam), users will find eight civilizations, four campaigns (there will be both single-player and multiplayer) and 35 missions covering a 500-year period “from the Dark Ages to the Renaissance“. The size of the game will be no less than 93 GB.

Age of Empires IV will be released in several versions, and in 2022 there will be mods for it – users will be able to modify the game themselves.

Fan Adds AMD FSR 2.0 ‘Magic Technology’ to Cyberpunk 2077 and Doubles Frame Rates in 4K

Fan Adds AMD FSR 20 Magic Technology to Cyberpunk 2077

A game modification developer under the pseudonym PotatoOfDoom has unveiled a new modification for Cyberpunk 2077. It adds AMD FSR 2.0 “magic technology” to the game, replacing existing anti-aliasing technologies – Nvidia DLSS and the first version of FSR. The author himself notes that the result was impressive.

Fan Adds AMD FSR 2.0 'Magic Technology' to Cyberpunk 2077 and Doubles Frame Rates in 4K

According to him, when running the game on a system with a GTX 1080 graphics card in 4K resolution, the frame rate rose to 45 FPS, which is twice as much as it was originally. Other users confirm the increase in frame rate. On a GTX 970 at 1080p and maxed out, Cyberpunk runs at 30 FPS. On the 5700XT, with average shadow quality, the figure increased from 50 to 86 FPS.

The author noted that the modification was originally calculated only for the Steam version of Cyberpunk 2077, but it seems that a recent update made it work with the GOG version as well.

AMD FSR 2.0 technology is not yet officially supported in the game, but its appearance will allow the use of older Nvidia video cards older than the 10th series. The developers have not yet announced plans to add a new anti-aliasing system to the game.

Earlier it was reported that AMD FSR 2.0 was added to Unreal Engine 4 and 5 as a plug-in.

Experts from Open AI taught the neural network to play

Researchers at Open AI have taught artificial intelligence how to play Minecraft using only walkthrough videos. The training method was based on preliminary video training (Video PreTraining, VPT), ​​which made it possible to use a large amount of unlabeled data for this. To control AI, I used mouse and keyboard emulators.

Experts from Open AI taught the neural network to play Minecraft exclusively from videos

At the first stage, the neural networks showed 2,000 hours of marked-up video with Minecraft gameplay. Here, the researchers demonstrated which buttons users pressed during the game. This allowed the system to learn to guess which buttons are pressed. At the second stage, the neural network has already viewed 70 thousand hours of unlabeled video (without data on the buttons being pressed). All entries were taken from open sources.

As a result, the neural network was able to learn not only to walk in the game world, but also to extract resources and create objects from them, run, swim, avoid obstacles, hunt animals and get food. AI has also learned to jump up and put blocks under the character to climb higher.

In the third stage, the researchers asked the users who took part in the project to help them. Players have created a new world in Minecraft, collected the necessary resources to start and crafted the essentials. All this was recorded on video, which was then shown by neural networks. Some have even built basic shelters, and the neural network has mastered this skill. The researchers used reinforcement learning, which allowed the AI ​​to eventually create a diamond pickaxe.

Scientists believe that the method of preliminary video training will allow you to quickly train neural networks for the necessary tasks, and will also allow you to train artificial intelligence to use the mouse and keyboard. The source codes of the project have already been published.

Previously, it was reported that Minecraft was completely completed in less than 2 minutes.

Like most home consoles, the Xbox Series X has been specifically designed to fit neatly into your living room. However, this was not enough for engineer Michael Pick, so he decided to create the world’s largest functional version of the Xbox Series X himself.

An enthusiast has created a giant working version of the Xbox Series X console

The author’s idea was partly inspired by a huge Microsoft refrigerator in the design of the console. However, the author wanted to keep the game features and copy the design exactly.

At the first stage, Peak had to create a wooden frame that mimics the body. Some parts had to be printed on a 3D printer and, mind you, glued. And on the rear panel of the giant console there are enlarged copies of real connectors – USB, audio and video output, network port, and so on.

Inside is the real Xbox Series X, and the button presses on the giant console are already transmitted to it. The final version is over 2 meters high, 1 meter wide and weighs 113 kg.

The giant Xbox Series X has already made it into the Guinness Book of Records. Michael donated it to the YMCA Youth and Adolescent Development Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
