SPLATOON 2 doesn’t have much detail for its story, but instead focuses on Inkopolis and the efforts you must take to regain balance between two warring factions. In single-player, you seek to wrest control back from the Octarians, who are stockpiling zapfishes. It’s essentially a context for you to learn the game’s controls and various gameplay mechanics. The more you play, the more gear and weapons you unlock, and the more adept you’ll become at painting levels with your arsenal and traversing all kinds of terrain. The online modes, where most of the gameplay lies, let you compete against other players in timed matches, which are variations on capture the flag, king of the hill, or most territory captured wins matches.
