Honkai: Star Rail’s next scheduled update will coincide with the game’s release on the PS5, and Chinese developer HoYoverse is going big on the waifus to keep existing fans engaged – and pull in new punters on its brand-new platform, too. Three new characters will debut starting 11th October with v1.4, including Jingliu, Guinaifen, Topaz & Numby. The latter, in particular, has a highly engaging kit.
Overall, this update is shaping up to be pretty big, with updates to the Simulated Universe and an entire new event themed around a fictional video game, named Aetherium Wars. Said holographic combat simulator will see you constructing parties out of creatures from the core campaign, which should bring some welcome variety to the turn-based combat.
