Honkai Impact 3rd introduces two characters and lots of new content with version 5.7
MiHoYo has announced the latest patch for the mega-popular 3D action game Honkai Impact, called Song of Perdition. This patch will introduce two characters as well as new events, scenarios to follow, outfits and in-game bonuses.
For those of you who don’t know, Honkai Impact 3rd is a heavily anime-inspired action game that was sort of the precursor to the now legendary Genshin Impact. In it, a team of characters called Valkyries battles a doomsday force called Honkai in a war of survival and a fight for all that is beautiful in the world. Although it’s not as big as Genshin, it has certainly made a name for itself, even earning a Steam port and still topping the charts alongside its big brother.
As for the update, the highlight is of course the two new characters. Aponia debuted a while ago in the story and is finally available to acquire and add to your party to play as. She can inflict multiple rounds of lightning strikes on enemies during battle and unleash her Inhibitor’s Adjudication ultimate ability to fly above the battlefield and bombard enemies with holy light.
Golden Diva: Eva, the other of the two, is new to the world of Honkai Impact. She is a ranged type fighter, also dealing lightning damage while playing her weapon of choice; a beautifully crafted harp. Her ultimate sees her pass lightning energy through the instrument and use it to blast her enemies.
The storyline for this patch will focus on Elysia and The Thirteen Flame-Chasers, alongside a new open world of Elysium Everlasting in the new story chapter. This comes with a new themed event; Dimensions broken. If you defeat the event boss, you can earn massive rewards including character upgrade materials and a new outfit for Bright Knight: Excelsis.
This update will be released for all versions of Honkai Impact 3rd on May 19th. For more information about all additional content and changes, you can visit the official website, and for more information about Honkai Impact 3rd, you can visit their official website. Twitter username!
