Arknights‘ upcoming 3D RPG spin-off, Arknights: Endfield, debuted a new trailer at The Game Awards 2023, previewing more combat footage and a boss battle. The trailer is meant to celebrate Arknights: Endfield‘s newly announced PS5 release — it will also be available on PC and mobile — and the start of sign-ups for the international PC technical test, which is due to begin on January 11, 2024 at 7PM PST.
Here’s an official blurb from GRYPHLINE, the game’s newly established global publisher, about what players can expect from the technical test:
International players who participate in the upcoming technical test will discover the world of Talos-II and meet the cast of characters featured in Arknights: Endfield. Step into the role of the Endministrator, lead a crew of nine playable characters, confront hostiles with the game’s real-time combat system, explore the tech tree of Endfield Industries, and more.
The test will also feature Arknights: Endfield‘s “factory system,” which GRYPHLINE says was a “fan-favorite” during the Chinese technical test. This element of the game allows players to become a base builder and manager, plonking down factory structures and establishing production lines that “produce resources and manufacture products that can give players an edge in battle.” Players will apparently be able to “modify in-game terrain and environments” as well.
Sign-ups for the international technical test will end on December 23 at 7:59PM PT. The test will feature an English interface with English, Mandarin, and Japanese voice options. To run it, you’ll need the following specs:
• OS: Windows 10 64-bit or higher
• CPU: Recommended: Intel Core i5-10600K or equivalent, or better CPUs; Minimum: Intel Core i5-9400F

• VRAM: 6GB or higher
