Arknights has announced a new side story called Lingering Echoes, which features a farewell concert organized by Czerny and featuring Ebenholz and Kreide. The update also includes the addition of three new operators, three new outfits, a new themed furniture set, and other rewards. The update is live on Android and iOS and can be downloaded today.
What’s new in Arknights?
The story is set in Leithanien, which has caught the attention of Rhodes Island because of the recent occurrence of infected individuals there who are able to heal themselves. Czerny, a renowned infected composer, is hosting a farewell concert in which Ebenholz and Kreide will be involved in a story of intrigue and resistance.
The event “Lingering Echoes” lasts from December 27, 2022 to January 10, 2023 (UTC-7) and the second phase “Back Alleys” will be live from January 3, 2023 (UTC-7).
During the event, the 5-star defender, Czerny is available as the bonus operator only for this limited time. Doctors can also gain the new furniture, Afterglow-Styled Music Room and other items including Headhunting Permit, Elite Materials, LMD, Battle Records and Furniture Parts from Composer’s Mailbox by clearing the event stages.
New Operators (Ebenholz Banner)
6-star Caster: Ebenholz
Ebenholz is a 6-star Mystic Caster who specializes in Damage Per Second. His attacks deal Arts damage to one target. When he is not attacking, Ebenholz periodically stores his attacks, up to a maximum of three, and all of the stored attacks will be released simultaneously at the next time he attacks, which means a burst of four hits! Ebenholz will show his talents especially when Doctors face strong enemies.
5-star Medic: Hibiscus the Purifier
Hibiscus the Purifier is the alternate 5-star version of Hibiscus who is an Incantation. What defines her as an Incantation Medic is that sometimes she will attack enemies instead of healing friendlies. Hibiscus has truly grown up and her skill will now improve the efficiency of her attacks.
5-star Defender: Czerny
Czerny is an Arts Protector that is redeemable in this event. His second skill lets him tank attacks easier than others and punish enemies back with powerful damage, which undoubtedly makes him a good defender worth obtaining.
New Arrivals at Outfit Store
The update also sees new outfits in Achievement Star Collection. Includes Sport For All for Flametail, Light Gun Adjuster for Aosta and Trendsetting Player for Kirara. Give them a new look!
