“Arknights” is a domestically-made strategic business game developed by Eagle Corner Network, and it will be publicly tested on May 1, 2019.
In the game, the player will act as the leader of Rhode Island, “Doctor”, leading a group of operators in Rhode Island to rescue the victims, deal with ore disputes, and fight the integration movement. In the intricate power game, find a way to cure the mineral disease.
There is a kind of mineral ubiquitous in Terra World, most of which are black translucent crystals. The source stone contains huge energy, which is the primary factor causing natural disasters. Usually used in the field of spells, it is the basic material and catalyst for the manufacture of various surgical tools and spell props. Without the aid of the source stone, the use efficiency of the spell will be greatly reduced. Now, with the innovation of Yuanshi engine technology, more and more Yuanshi is used as energy in various countries.
The collective term for various natural disasters that frequently occur in Terra World. Including but not limited to storms, snow disasters, heavy rainfall, floods, and even meteorite falls. The frequency of natural disasters is very high, and the rules are also elusive, leading most civilizations to avoid natural disasters by migrating throughout the city. After natural disasters, a mineral called source stone is often left behind. Studies have shown that natural disasters may actually be a medium of transmission for the source rock.
It has been discovered that long-term exposure to source rocks and their industrial derivatives will make people more likely to get an incurable disease called “ore disease.” People suffering from mineral disease are called “infected”. Mineral disease can enhance the ability of people to use spells in a dangerous way, but it will continue to expand the scope of infection of mineral disease during the process of using spells, and eventually take the lives of the infected and use it as a new source of infection. There have been many long-term studies on this disease, but there are not many effective results.
Rhode Island Pharmaceuticals is a registered pharmaceutical research and development company. Rhode Island claims in public information that it is studying medical solutions that can be applied to the problems encountered by various countries, organizations or individuals. Therefore, it recruits talents in various countries, regardless of seniority or infection. At the same time, Rhode Island also provides its employees with good medical and living conditions and the most advanced research equipment, which has attracted many desperately infected people and capable people who are determined to change the situation of infected people.
Natural disasters of unknown origin and raging everywhere, a large number of mysterious minerals appeared on the land that has swept across them-known as “source stones”. Although the discovery of the source stone has a long history, it relies on technological progress and the energy contained in it has enabled civilization to enter the modern era. At the same time, the source stone itself has spawned the existence of “infected”. These existences with strength and misfortune, some of them are now trying to integrate with the source stone to bring a new order to the earth. This conspiracy of war created new obstacles in the fight against natural disasters.

Among them, the search certificate items can only be obtained through the procurement center or purchase gift packages. The rest of the props can be obtained from different resource copies in the game.

Infrastructure functions are relatively complex, consisting of a control center and several rooms. Players can consume drones and infrastructure materials to upgrade them. The level of the control center determines the number of buildings that can be built. This scene provides players with ways to produce resources, synthesize materials, obtain Dragon Coins and strengthen the skills of operators.
Before the battle begins, players should make a reasonable formation of their operators and choose appropriate skills.
After the battle begins, the player needs to deploy an operator to defend according to the enemy’s attacking direction, and at the same time, if the cost allows, select the corresponding professional operator to join the battle according to the type of monster. When the enemy is completely eliminated, if the player’s defense value is not 0, the battle is won; if the player’s defense value is full, you can get a 3-star rating and additional rewards.
In the crisis contract activities, players need to choose the contract matching according to the task requirements or team configuration. Different contracts will provide a crisis level of 1~3.

For trainee/main-line missions, players need to complete missions such as attacking specific levels or manufacturing specific materials to obtain rewards or unlock the next stage of missions.
Players can build manufacturing stations, processing stations and power stations in the Rhode Island infrastructure scene. The manufacturing station can produce items such as red gold, combat records, and chipsets at the cost of a specific time. The processing station can process a number of low-level materials by consuming Longmen coins to turn them into high-level materials.
The power station provides electricity for other facilities, and its level restricts the upgrade of other facilities; at the same time, the level of the power station affects the charging speed of the drone, and operators with corresponding skills can also make the drone more rechargeable. rapid. UAVs can be used to accelerate the acquisition of trade war orders or the production of materials at manufacturing stations.
