Fallout 76 is a prequel to other games in the Fallout series, developed by Bethesda Softworks. It will be the first online multiplayer title in Bethesda Game Studios’ offer. Even though the game is the ninth one in the franchise, its storyline takes place well before the events of even the first Fallout game, just after the first vaults started opening.The plot starts on Reclamation Day in 2102, 25 years after the nuclear apocalypse. You and other Vault Dwellers are chosen by the nation as the most suitable to reshape the country. In this role-playing video game the player’s task is not only to survive, but also to explore the area, create a base camp and ultimately reshape the world with nuclear missiles.Watch out for monsters, robbers, and other enemies that want to destroy your creations. Reach higher levels to gain new perks and improve your character’s abilities.Gameplay of Fallout 76Fallout 76 will have some of the elements of previous Fallout titles when it comes to graphics and gameplay features, however they will be modified to work in real-time in online mode. For instance the V.A.T.S. system that was present in Fallout games since the third instalment was modified to accommodate that idea. The system used to allow players to pause game in order to target a chosen point on enemy’s body. In online mode pausing can’t be an option, but specifying a target on foes’ bodies will still be possible.The game is set in a massive open world—four times as big as the Fallout 4 map —inspired by West Virginia. Some real locations, like Camden Park, NE River Gorge Bridge, West Virginia State Capital, Woodburn Circle, made it to the game. Also West Virginia folklore is the inspiration for some of monsters and mysterious places, such as Mothman and the Flatwoods . There are of course other numerous, mutated creatures in the game.As all the previous Fallout games the prequel also have the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. progression system, but it was improved and revised.In Fallout 76 the protagonist has the following attributes: Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, Luck. With each level, the players can boost their abilities going from one to fifteen on a scale, by spending skills points.By levelling up, the player receives trading cards with unique value that can changed for perks in a given category. Merging the cards is also possible, if they are similar, and thus getting more valuable perks from them.All of the humans that have survived apocalypse and are exploring the West Virginia open world are represented by other players from around the globe. The lack of non-player characters (NPCs) forced Bethesda game studio to revise a bit the storyline presentation compared to Fallout series’ other titles. Previously, NPCs were assigning quests or talking with a player.Now their role will be taken over by robots, as well as the environment. The players will explore the open world of the game and by uncovering parts of the storyline, they will be able to progress and get new quests. There will be also terminals located in the game’s world and recordings, for instance holotapes.The settlement founding will be expanded relative to Fallout 4so the players can build bases anywhere they want to. All the creations will be tied to the players’ accounts will be removed from the map when the players are offline.An interesting feature is a photo mode, in which the player can pause the game and make cool screenshots. Later on, they can serve as the gallery displayed during loading of the game.By using nuclear weapons the player can reshape the post-apocalyptic world. In order to do so, the player needs to get launch codes of missiles. After firing the missile, there opens the possibility to access the silos and explore the area in search for gear, weaponsand other resources.The player must bear in mind though, that such opportunity will attract enemies hungry for booty. To survive after the nuclear attack, the character has to be really strong.Online Multiplayer in Fallout 76!The adventure in the open world of apocalyptic Fallout video game will get even more exciting with this online mode. The players can take on the game on their own or form a group with others – up to three members. Fallout 76 is going have dedicated servers. Upon entering the online mode, the player will be automatically redirected and assigned to a server.PremiseThe location of the game is West Virginia as imagined in an alternative version of history – after the nuclear war. The protagonist hails from Vault 76, a shelter for greatest and brightest Americans that were destined to survive the annihilation. Now they are part of re-colonization plan that starts in 2102. Their goal is to rebuilt the destroyed world.
Doomsday headlines warn that the age of “killer robots” is upon us, and that new military technologies based on artificial intelligence (AI) will lead to the annihilation of the human race. What’s fact and what’s fiction? In The Case for Killer Robots: Why America’s Military Needs to Continue Development of Lethal AI, artificial intelligence expert Robert J. Marks investigates the potential military use of lethal AI and examines the practical and ethical challenges. Marks provocatively argues that the development of lethal AI is not only appropriate in today’s society, it is also unavoidable if America wants to survive and thrive into the future. About the author: Dr. Marks directs the Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence at Discovery Institute, and he is a distinguished professor of electrical and computer engineering at Baylor University. This short monograph is produced in conjunction with the Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence, which can be visited at centerforintelligence.org. 1. Language: English.

Homeland Security agent Rick Alders lives a relatively peaceful life in his home town of Helena, Montana. His idyllic existence is shattered when a top-secret government black ops project known only as The Horde is activated during the presentation of a breakthrough technology that would bridge the gap between our reality and the unknown of cyberspace. As Agent Alders plunges deeper into a nightmare he never could have imagined, he finds himself pitted against a malevolent intelligence with a single purpose - the annihilation of the human race. 1.

For nearly half a century the world was divided in two, wrenched apart by superpowers that perceived the nations of the world only as either capitalist or communist. The Cold War was a battle not of weapons but rather of minds, fought by intelligence agencies, propaganda and covert government envoys. Using evidence from newly opened archives, Merrilyn Thomas peels back layers of deception and intrigue to dispel the myths of the Cold War. From the power of Mao’s Little Red Book to the menace of nuclear annihilation, this compelling account brings to life one of history’s most contentious periods, the legacy of which still haunts us today. 1.

An unabridged reading of an exciting classic novelisation, based on a TV adventure featuring the Second Doctor, as played by Patrick Troughton. Materialising in Outer Space, the TARDIS is attacked by a missile fired from the dark side of the moon. Back on Earth, the newly-formed United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT), led by Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, is disturbed by a series of UFO sightings over Southern England. Meanwhile, a large consigment of mysterious crates is delivered to the headquarters of International Electromatix, the largest computer and electronics firm in the world. These three seemingly unconnected events are in fact the preparations for a massive Cyberman invasion of Earth, with one aim: the total annihilation of the human race. Duration: 5 hours approx. 1.

A century and a half after the Martian Separatist Wars and the final defeat of insane terrorist leader El Ahmi, Alexander Moore returns to the stars with the Sienna Madira, a United States Navy supercarrier spacecraft outfitted with advanced FTL and endlessly strange, extremely effective, quantum-based weapons and remote sensing technology. And, of course, he's brought marines and lots of them. These are troops superbly trained for space battle and equipped with advanced powered armor and artificial intelligence backup. Moore's task: hunt down remnant weaponry platforms left by the brilliant, mad artificial intelligence known as Copernicus, the being ultimately responsible for the solar system-wide civil war. Yet Moore is about to uncover something far more sinister: Before his destruction, Copernicus had established multiple mecha-warrior-defended bases with the intent of resuming the destruction of humanity. Worse, an AI presence even more dangerous, evil, and clever than Copernicus may have formed an alliance with something else out there with a similar goal: to wipe humanity from the galaxy forever. But those enemies will have to face a fully armed and equipped military task force led by a resolute general and his soldiers, who know they are all that stand between human life, freedom, and progress - and the total annihilation of mankind. 1.

Zeke gets severely wounded, ultimately forcing the mutating DNA to intensify its activities.

Believing he has the answer to everything, he makes plans to do what he can to protect humanity from extinction.
