The time has finally come, as Arknights is celebrating bringing to the game the long-awaited IL Siracusano event on May 23, bringing with it a new story event, a new thank-you celebration event, powerful new operators, and much more.
The IL Siracusano event takes doctors to Siracusa, where Texas is returning to the city of Volsinii to accomplish a mission from the heir of the Bellone famiglia from an oath she made several years ago. Now determined to rid herself of her past, Texas heads off to sever this connection that has haunted her for so many years.
The IL Siracusano and thank-you event brings many things, but its highlights are the new operators including Texas the Omertosa, Penance, and the Free 6-Star operator Vigil alongside multiple more new and free operators, joining the game. A new series of Login events, outfits at the store, and of course the IL Siracusano story and challenge stages, and even more content coming in Integrated Strategies 3 featuring Mizuki, which will not replace Integrated Strategies 2, but be added as a separate themed mode you can pick from.

▍Arknights New Operators
Arknights isn’t getting just 4, but a whopping 7 new operators in the game to celebrate the occasion, with a bunch of them being accessible from gameplay, and a couple new to the game’s headhunting.

Along with those operators added to the game’s headhunting, gacha, there are a few more that can be picked up in the game entirely for free without rolling! First up is Highmore, a Reaper guard that can be earned from reaching certain milestones in Integrated Strategies 3. She’s joined by Quartz, and Qanipalaat, two new operators added to the game’s purchase certificates store, and thus won’t be available from the game’s headhunting or recruitment.
