Arknights – Prelude to Dawn: All You Need To Know
Imagine waking up in a hospital and seeing Amiya, a gorgeous girl who gets thrilled when she sees you and tries her best to heal you. You can’t even tell what’s going on around you, and you don’t even recognize her. Sad Amiya explains everything to you and also addresses you as a doctor. That is what happens in the game, and you are the Doctor and the primary protagonist.
Amiya drags you into the battle even though you have no idea what is going on. Nevertheless, you choose to take charge of the team of operators, placing the right operator in the right place and engaging in combat with the terrorist organization known as The Reunion.
The world has entered an apocalyptic crisis, and a natural calamity has occurred, boosting the power of a material called Originium. Slowly, the amnesiac Doctor learns this information.
