Strategy RPG ‘Arknights’ Launches Contingency Contract Season 9 in the West

YoStar announced the launch of Season 9 of the tower-defense strategy RPG, Arknights, available now in the west on iOS and Android devices.

The Contingency Contract event, “Operation Deepness,” introduces players to a new 5-Star operator, Erato, who will join the party as a high-DPS Sniper. She can attack the heaviest enemy first on the battlefield, giving you time to form a strategy.

Further, a new banner is available. The sixth Joint Operation is featured in this update, giving Doctors a higher chance to obtain these specific 6-star operators: Exusiai, Skadi, Kal’tsit, and Mountain. Simultaneously, some popular 5-star operators included: Lapland, Akafuyu, Liskarm, Provence, FEater, and Tsukinogi.

Arknights, players assume the role of a member of Rhodes Island, which is the most advanced Infected research institution in the world. In this world, a material known as Originium Ore has begun infected humans. Without any real knowledge of the infection, countries have expelled those who are infected, leaving them without any actual path in life. The infected begin to rally together in what is known as the Reunion, where they plan to take back their lives. Still, Rhodes Island aims to cure this design through any means possible.

It’s up to the player to follow their leader, Amiya, and recruit Operators, train them, then assign them to rescue the victims, deal with disputes, and fight against the Reunion.
