Berlin – July 28, 2020– It’s been a little over 2 years considering that the researchers at OpenAI handled to beat top DOTA gamers utilizing neural networks trained by playing versus themselves. Upstart Mount Rouke Studios is now betting that they can make a streamlined variation of that innovation into a PC video game, which is launching in early gain access to today.

The video game, called “Dr. Derk’s Mutant Battlegrounds”, looks like a wacky western themed version of a MOBA with 2 sides dealing with each other and valuable statues they need to protect.

However due to the fact that what you’re really training is their neural networks, there’s a substantial quantity of depth to the game as there are almost limitless behaviours they could be trained to do.
