The Collection of The End - Chapter 1650: The final work (8)
—? ? ? —
In the empty old apartment, an old-fashioned telephone is ringing, and the “view angle” rotates around it at the same time.
The scattered debris, the overturned tables and chairs, the cracked wall, the cobwebs in the corners and the dust on the ground all proved that this is a room that has not been inhabited for a long time.
However, the dilapidated windows sealed by wooden boards, the thick iron chains that fastened the gate firmly, and the empty cans and beverage bottles piled up in the corners all prove that this place was once a “refuge.”
If all the exits have been sealed from the inside, where is the original owner here?
When the “angle of view” turned to the initial angle, Neo, Gwen, and Conna appeared next to the phone as if they had been at the beginning.
Neo still looks like that black trench coat with big sunglasses, Gwen changed into her “Spider Girl uniform” with a black tight leather jacket and a white hood, while Conna changed into a costume like an elite policewoman, but The huge sword shining on the back looked a bit unsuitable.
Neo picked up the receiver: “We’re here.”
“Wow, this way of playing is really cool~” Gwen looked around: “Although I heard you say that the “Matrix” is basically restoring the environment before 1999, isn’t it a bit too much?”
“Now, what is our purpose? What kind of enemies will we encounter?” After briefly observing the environment, Conna pointed to the core issue of the mission on this trip.
“Okay, I see.” Neo talked with Locke on the old phone, put down the receiver and turned to Gwen and Conna: “The good news is that we have not been dispersed, which proves that the Matrix did not discover our invasion, and the bad news is , It’s not at all whether or not it will be hacked here.”
“I would like to hear the details.” Kang Na responded.
“I said before that if you think of Matrix as a game, then it is a game where there is no NPC. Almost everyone seen in it does not know that they are controlled by the Matrix, and lives their lives step by step. Real people,” Neo replied: “If we connect on the planet’s hinterland of the matrix, we will appear in big cities, if we connect on remote planets, we will appear in the countryside. Of course, this is only the’online location’, and we can decide to go there. Where, in the virtual world, distance does not have much practical meaning.”
“I think I understand a little bit.” Conna walked to the window and looked out. As expected, although it was daytime and the apartment was obviously in the downtown area, there was only silence outside.
“Yes, although there are many people in Zion, none of them have a connection matrix. For the matrix, this is a’wilderness’ where no one lives, and above the’wilderness’, it can create any environment it wants. ,” Neo paused: “And as long as the living thing that appears here, it must be a’virus’, and his’antivirus software’ can act at will.”
“Are you talking about the ‘agents’ who know kung fu?” Kang Na subconsciously held down the hilt.
“Not necessarily. They appear as agents because they are most suitable for the urban environment. In an abandoned city, their appearance can be changed arbitrarily, as long as they are suitable for the environment, such as—”
With a loud noise, the wall beside Kang Na was pierced suddenly. The attacker seemed to want to take advantage of the situation to catch Kang Na, but she rolled over and dodged on the spot.
The smoke and dust from the wall burst slightly dispersed, so that the three people present could see its appearance clearly.
It was a huge man with a height of nearly three meters, wearing a brown-yellow windbreaker, a wide-brimmed hat, and a rigid face. A pair of cruel small eyes were staring at Kang Na.
At the same time, there was a dull voice, as if squeezed out of the teeth: “[STARS—!]”
“…Like this,” Neo drew his gun from his trench coat. “Run, right away.”
“No? That’s it?” A moment later, in a messy apartment, Gwen kicked the “Chaser” who was lying motionless on the ground, and turned to look at Neo: “Are you sure we should run away immediately?”
“…” Neo didn’t answer. He pressed his headset to listen for a moment before he said: “It’s not dead, it’s just’offline’. We still have to leave as soon as possible and find the control center of this attack.”
“I really don’t have the feeling of’killing’ it,” Kang Na drew the big sword from behind the pursuer. “You said it was called the’stalker’? Does it mean that it will pursue us endlessly?”
“Before losing us, all agents will do this. The only good news at the moment is that the city is empty and it cannot launch a surprise attack by swapping positions with other’NPC’,” Neo looked at the one. Dajian looked at Conna again, as if he wanted to ask something but gave up: “Let’s go.”
Conna had originally planned to carry the big sword behind her back, but after looking at the giant man who fell on the ground, after thinking about it, she just carried it upside down and left.
In addition to the abandoned apartments, there are buildings of different heights, but the same old and dead. They are gray as a whole, and there is no sign of living creatures. The sky is also covered by lead-grey low clouds, and the whole shows an end of the world. Breath.
However, although the building looks dilapidated, it is still structurally strong. When Neo took Gwen and Conna over the walls between the buildings, there was almost no collapse in the place they passed.
“Didn’t you say you can fly? Why don’t you fly by yourself or let me fly?” Gwen muttered very dissatisfied.
“If you don’t want the’chaser’ to become capable of flying, or have a super long-range attack ability, it’s best not to do that,” Neo replied, and glanced at Conna: “I’m not sure now, a What abilities will a pursuer who is stabbed back by a big sword evolve?”
“Adaptability?” Conna raised an eyebrow.
“Perhaps you may think Grox is a super artificial intelligence. When a threat is found, it will immediately use all means to extinguish the threat in the bud, but this is just a misunderstanding. Except for some out-of-control antivirus software, most of it is used to deal with it. The strength of our “hackers” is only to the extent that it can just suppress our demonstrated strength.” Neo replied.
“Let me guess, you must have made those out of control’antivirus software’.” Gwen curled his lips.
“About this, I—”
At this moment, there was a strange loud sound, like a siren or an air defense alarm.
At the same time, the whole city “burned” as far as he could see.
No, it was not burning, but the sky suddenly turned red, and the outer walls of all the buildings were quickly peeling off and turning into debris into the air, looking as if they were burning.
In less than half a minute, the entire originally quiet, as if abandoned, silent city became an ashes city that seemed to have encountered a major fire, leaving only the remains of the basic structure.
Simultaneously with it, there are countless zombies all over the ruins and streets, constantly whistling and roaring, bustling with it.
“—I am not responsible for this.” After a little sluggishness, Neo added the second half of the sentence.
