Arknights is a strategy-based RPG that pits players against the Reunion, a growing segment of the population that’s infected by originium. Along the way, players provide assistance to those in need, while attempting to put an end to the Originium Conflict for once and for all.
Players begin their journey as a doctor awakened by Amiya. Suffering from memory loss, players are gradually reacquainted with the current, dire situation as they work with multiple factions found on Rhodes Island.
Arknights’ core gameplay focuses on strategically placing squad members on a tiled map as players are attacked by a bevvy of plagued beings. Adding depth to strategy, players can form custom decks of 12 operators and choose which ones to deploy during battle. Eight distinct classes of operators are available for deployment, including snipers, medics, vanguards, defenders, specialists, casters, guards, and supporters. Obstacles and terrain will both differ from map-to-map, adding two more elements of randomness that players must add to your strategy considerations.
