Arknights ‘Children of Ursus’ Update – New Characters, Stories, and More in the Latest Patch

Posted by: BlueStacks Content Team

The story in Arknights just got a bit wider as the latest update, Children of Ursus, gives us a new perspective on the lives of several operators in the game. Additionally, this patch also brings several new characters to the roster, which players can unlock to spice up their current lineup with new and unique skills and passives.

Let’s take a quick peek of what you can find in the Arknights Children of Ursus patch:

Several New Storylines

It’s not uncommon for updates like this one to bring new story chapters to the game, though they’re usually side-missions that provide a bit of backstory to either the characters or the environments of the world, and the Children of Ursus update is no exception to this.

This patch introduces seven new chapters to the story, all centered around the different operators that survived one of the biggest tragedies in the game. These storylines come with special event stages that, upon completion, also award players with event items that can be traded in for special prizes including Recruitment Permits, LMD, certain upgrade materials, furniture items, and even Absinthe, a new 5-star operator that will definitely come in handy.

Four New Operators

With this new patch, there are also four new operators added to the current lineup, Rosa (6*), Leonhardt and the aforementioned Absinthe (both 5*), and Podenco (4*).

Rosa is one of the strongest characters added in this update. She’s a sniper that has a very low rate of fire, but can attack from very long distances. Her attacks are very powerful as well and, with her skills, she can further boost the damage of every shot. It’s evident that her purpose is for dealing against high-value targets as she’ll be able to take down just about anyone from afar.

Absinthe and Leonhardt are the new 5* additions, and are complete opposites in combat. While Leonhardt has skills that allow him to quickly whittle down the enemy and significantly damage them, Absinthe specializes in finishing off wounded targets. In this sense, while they have different skillsets, they definitely complement each other in battle.

Lastly, Podenco is a 4* support operator that can alternate between healing the team with her skills, and inflicting continuous damage to the enemy. She’ll be a fine addition to any team, especially if lacking in the support area.

It’s worth mentioning that Podenco, Rosa, and Leonhardt will be available for recruitment via the Headhunting system even after the event ends. However, Absinthe is only available as a purchase from the event store by using currency obtained through the event missions. In this sense, if you want to complete your collection, you should definitely go out of your way to play the event missions and unlock Absinthe ASAP.
