Honkai: Star Rail version 1.1 ‘Galactic Roaming’ update releases June 7 with Silver Wolf, Luocha and Yukong joining in for the ride!
All the details came from a recent live event from miHoYo, which resembled a talk show kind of atmosphere with the 3 upcoming characters as their main guests.
There’s really a lot to unpack for Honkai Star Rail’s version 1.1 update, and the game is just out a little more than a month!
For those who missed the livestream, you can check it out below:
Here’s the important highlights of what you can expect:
Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong are in for the ride
Trailblazers can continue exploring the new content in the Herta Space Station, Jarilo-VI, and Xianzhou Luofu, with three new playable characters including Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong, along with companion missions, updated gameplay features, and time-limited events.
The latest update brings three new playable characters—Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong, who appeared in the intergalactic story before and can now be officially recruited to assist in the grand space fantasy odyssey.
Silver Wolf, a super genius hacker within the Stellaron Hunters, breaks through all defense systems as easily as pie. She is a Quantum-Type character following the Path of Nihility and can apply different debuffs to enemies to improve her allies’ combat superiority. Outside of combat, her Technique comes in handy as she is able to deal damage and reduce the enemy’s Toughness regardless of their Weakness. When she unleashes her Ultimate, Silver Wolf will bash enemies, gaining the upper hand for the team by dealing damage to the enemies as well as reducing their defense.
The other character, Luocha, a wandering merchant with an elegant look and a gentlemanly demeanor, seems suspicious by carrying a mysterious coffin all the time. As an Imaginary-Type character following the Path of Abundance and a man with medical knowledge, Luocha is a master of recuperation. His unique Skill guarantees “emergency healing” when any alley is in danger, without consuming any Skill points. His Ultimate “Death Wish” dispels one buff of all enemies and deals Imaginary damage.
For real though, there’s really both an air of mystery and curiosity on who’s inside that huge casket. Cocolia perhaps? Only time will tell!
Lastly, Yukong is the Sky-Faring Helm Master, the leader who oversees all matters relating to flight, including commerce, cargo, and passengers of Xianzhou Luofu. As an Imaginary-Type character following the Path of Harmony, Yukong’s skill set centers around assisting companions. Her days on the front lines may be over, but her battle mindset and instinct don’t fade away!
Besides bonding with these new characters, Trailblazers can roam the worlds and uncover mysteries, experiencing refreshing gameplay provided by the Version 1.1 update. In the “Starhunt Game” event, the Trailblazers receive an invite from Herta Space Station’s network security engineer, Leonard, assisting him to locate the electronic graffiti hidden across the station and uncover the secrets within. As part of the compensation, the graffiti designs can be collected and applied to the in-game surfaces. In addition, in the city of Belobog, where citizens have finally been saved from the threat of Stellaron, the History Museum is getting ready to be reopened. In the “Everwinter City Museum Ledger of Curiosities” event, the Trailblazer will spare no effort to track down clues, recover the lost exhibits, and run the business as the museum manager.
A series of trials will be added through “Stellar Flare,” “Garden of Plenty,” and “Lab Assistants in Position,” some of which will put the combat techniques and the strategic thinking of the Trailblazer to the test, while providing bountiful rewards. Meanwhile, three new Companion Missions provide opportunities to gain in-depth stories of these intriguing characters. Some useful functional features will be implemented as well, such as the friend chat and automatic enemy pinpointing, ensuring a smoother gaming experience.
I don’t know about you, but for a game that’s just recently been release, the developers seem to be going all-out for Honkai Star Rail’s version 1.1 update.
Based on what they announced during the livestream, it’s really good to know that the museum event will become a permanent fixture in the game once the event duration passes. Time to head back to Belobog!
