Updating version 1.5 for Honkai: star lanedubbed “The Twilight Zone,” will launch on November 15, developer miHoYo announced.
Here’s an overview of the update, via miHoYo:
VThe latest update will introduce a new location, Fyxestroll Garden in Xianzhou Luofu, full of paranormal cases. Additionally, three new faces: Huohuo, Hanya and Argenti will make their debut as playable characters, adding new excitement to the great space odyssey.
After resolving different types of intergalactic conflicts, the Trailblazers will set foot in a spooky, unexplored area for the first time! Some time ago, the Craft Commission of the Creation Furnace was destroyed and the heliobi trapped inside were able to escape and find refuge in the Fyxestroll Garden. Heliobi are created from accumulated grievances and can inhabit individuals, manipulate their senses, and control their souls and even their bodies. Fyxestroll Garden is already filled with yin energy and is filled with ancient suppression towers, stone monoliths, and twisted trees, contributing to its eerie atmosphere. Since the arrival of heliobi, it has become one of the most dangerous places in Xianzhou Luofu.
To solve the crisis caused by heliobi, the Trailblazers will assemble a ghost hunting team and embark on the quest to unravel these mysteries. During this exciting experience, the pioneers will be able to receive the help of one of the most formidable forces in Xianzhou: the Commission of Ten Lords, the authorities of the supernatural, the guardians against the forces of evil and the arbiters of life and death .
The characters of the Commission of Ten Lords are willing to weigh in and support Trailblazer’s journey. Huohuo, for example, a trainee judge of the Ten Lords Commission, will join the playable cast as a five-star wind-type character who follows the Path of Abundance. Growing up, Huohuo was a shy Foxian girl who, during her childhood, faced an unusual trial when she was possessed by a heliobo. To save her life, the Ten Lords Commission had to contain the heliobus inside Huohuo’s tail. Subsequently, she developed an unusual affinity towards malevolent things. Recognizing her ability to pacify this monstrous being, the Commission of Ten Lords graciously welcomed Huohuo into their ranks. During battles, Huohuo’s ability allows him to bravely wield her banner and restore the hit points of a single ally and her adjacent teammates. Her Ultimate is also useful as she can rejuvenate the energy of her allies and boost her attack.
Another new four-star character, Hanya, also works as a judge in the Commission of Ten Lords. Hanya is a physical type character who follows the Path of Harmony and specializes in reading the karmic sins of criminals and uses her Oracle Brush to determine their sins. In addition to dealing physical damage to a single target during battles, Hanya’s ability can also afflict the target with a charged status. When an ally executes a set number of attacks against an enemy marked with Charge, he will not only deal increased damage to that enemy but will also regain a skill point.
In addition to the Commission of Ten Lords, players can recruit Argenti, a noble and admirable member of the Knights of Beauty. Argenti is a five-star physical type character who follows the Path of Scholarship and a devout admirer of Idrila the Beauty. Treating and helping others with courtesy and offering sincere praise to everyone is the Argenti code. Elegance is Argenti’s middle name and it manifests itself even in his combat. Argenti’s ultimate is truly distinctive, as he triggers different effects depending on the amount of energy consumed. By spending a small amount of energy, Argenti’s ultimate damages all enemies. However, by consuming all of his energy, Argenti’s ultimate ability deals even greater damage multiple times and includes additional damage to a randomly selected target.
Additionally, as Huohuo, Hanya, and Argenti debut as playable characters, Trailblazers can look forward to several exciting events, such as helping March 7th restore their prized photographs to their original condition. Additionally, the game will introduce an update to the Guestbook feature, allowing Trailblazers to check their friends’ visit history to the Astral Express. Lastly, Genius Society’s latest update, “Simulated Universe: World 8,” will also be released soon for those craving more challenges.
