In the last chapter, facing Reunion’s strike and invasion of Lungmen City, Ch’en led L.G.D. team and partnered with Rhodes Island. Although they finally took back the L.G.D. building and destroyed Reunion’s initial plan, L.G.D. and Rhodes Island still must annihilate the rest of the Reunion force to protect the city. By gradually exploring Chapter 6, players will get to know more about the worldview as well as the struggles in both Lungmen - Rhode Island side and the Reunion side.

 

Combined with the new soundtrack “Last of Me ft. RUNN”, players will immerse themselves into a different party’s struggle and understand more activities behind the scenes. These electronic and futuristic beats will surround players in the world of Arknights, consummate the obstacles they will come across, and the mixed feelings while going through the plot in this new Chapter. Steve Aoki surely dived deep in the game and expressed his empathy for the plot with all the beats.

 

As for gameplay, players still have to deal with familiar bosses – Faust and Frostnova, except they will become more powerful and require more tactics this time. Besides the general Lungmen battlefield, players will also move to the frozen Chernobog battlefield and fight against the Yeti Squadron. Be aware of the new Originium Ice Crystals on this battlefield, as they periodically release frigid waves to affect allied units.

 

Three new operators, each with a unique specialty, will be introduced to players as well. They are 6-star Guard Blaze, 5-star Sniper GreyThroat, and 4-star Sniper Ambriel. Along with the new storyline, Blaze will join the team as a powerful multiple-attack ally, while operator GreyThroat will have her first debut to deal with multiple aerial enemies.

 

New outfits and furniture sets are always musts in each Arknights updates. This time, the Arknights in-game store brings the winter seasonal “Icefield Messenger” theme outfit series to complement the icy battleground. Cardigan’s outfit will be a free-obtainable reward with a 7-day log-in to all players. In addition to the seasonal series, FEater will have the “Dojo Star” outfit to showcase her glorious moment as a film star. For the dorm décor, “Rhodes Island Workstation” is added to the store as a time-limited furniture set, available from June 30 to July 21.
