Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun Is Out This May, Watch The New Trailer

Get ready to blast away pixelated daemons of Chaos because Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is releasing sooner than you might think. The ’90s-inspired FPS is set to launch May 23 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Developer Auroch Digital dropped the release date on the PlayStation Blog while detailing how the retro shooter pays homage to classics like Doom. For example, Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun lead designer Grant Stewart says the FPS “uses a hybrid system taking the best of modern technology and slamming it, pixels first, into the old ways.” Basically, the studio creates 3D models for enemies and then takes pictures of them to ultimately make 2D flipbook animations. This process creates a vintage look for the game.

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun will also utilize modern AI to update enemy behaviors, since a lot of shooters from decades ago could feel like a “very sophisticated target range,” according to Stewart. That means foes can dynamically spawn depending on player position in addition to appearing in handpicked spots by the developer.

Cyberpunk 2077 Update Adds New Mode That Pretty Much No One Can Play

Cyberpunk 2077’s Overdrive mode is now available, and if you have the right hardware, you’ll be able to experience a technology preview that pushes the boundaries of what current hardware is capable of. You’ll need to own one of the latest–and expensive–Nvidia 40-series graphics cards to get Overdrive Mode working on your PC, but if you have it, expect a really, really ridiculously good-looking version of Cyberpunk 2077.

If you’re still stuck in last-gen, there is some good news here as CD Projekt Red says that a measly GeForce RTX 3090 GPU can run Overdrive Mode, but at 1080p and 30fps. Alternatively, CDPR has enabled the mode on older hardware, but with a neat twist. Ray-tracing-capable PC graphics cards with at least 8GB VRAM will be capable of rendering path-traced screenshots in Photo Mode. This is possible because it means that these GPUs just need to render one frame, as opposed to rendering several frames every second when playing the game.

“Note that the higher the resolution and the less powerful the GPU is, the longer it will take to take a screenshot (between a few seconds to several minutes),” CDPR explained in its new patch notes.

Classified US Military Documents Leaked On Minecraft Discord Server And No One Noticed For Weeks

Classified US Military documents remained leaked on a Minecraft Discord server for a month before someone noticed them.

According to a report by CNN, the leaked documents were posted on the Discord server early last month and contained information on Russian casualties and weapon systems available to Ukraine. “This sh*t was sitting in a Minecraft Discord server for a month, and no one noticed,” Aric Toler, a researcher at Bellingcat, said.

The documents began to pick up some traction after a user posted parts of the documents to 4chan. On April 7, some of the Discord members began to worry that they’d be in trouble for reposting the documents. The user who posted the documents on March 1 deleted their Twitter and Discord accounts shortly after.

Special Education Schools Give Your Child the Attention They Need

We all want our children to enjoy learning, and to be the best that they can possibly be. If your child has a physical or learning disability, you may be considering special education schools. Many offer a wide range of programs that support and grow with the student throughout the academic years, so they have the best chance to succeed.

Needs addressed
Does the program have a particular focus for the children it serves? Some are specifically designed for kids with autism, while others may be for adolescents with disabilities such as cerebral palsy. Consider a school that has programs proven to help your child’s particular needs.

Most special education schools will offer some supportive services. Do they conduct periodic assessments? Since you may be attending the school with the help of federal or state assistance, ask what kind of support the school offers with completing paperwork and providing regular updates to the appropriate groups. Do they offer transportation to and from school?

Class size
It’s important to consider the class size for the different programs that may be attended. A larger class size is not necessarily bad in all cases, as group activities can be very beneficial. However,
