Honkai Impact 3rd has announced the release date for the version 5.9 update of the game, which sees more advancements in the Flame Chaser story as well as a new valkyrie join the game.
Honkai Impact 3rd version 5.9 will release on August 11th, with plenty to look forward to for eager Captains on PC, Android and iOS.
The main pull of the new version is the introduction of the new battlesuit, Vill-V, who’s a major player in the story of the Elysian Realm:
The Hyperion is going to become a lot livelier, for that Vill-V, or Vill-Vs, will be on board! With eight personalities living in one shell, her temper, facial expressions and voices shift from time to time, all different and unique. She can be the Scholar, the Expert, the Great Magician, etc.
Moreover, she is also the engineer that ceaselessly strives for perfection, carrying the confidence and willpower that exceed humanity. Vill-V fights alongside her turrets and chariot, while making incredible in-air moves on the battleground. Her extraordinary weapons that consist of pinions and gears, power tubes and dashboard can slash enemies like mowing down grass. Audience, attention! Don’t be blown away by the flabbergasting show.
Aside from that, 5.9 also brings even more story, involving the identity of the mysterious 13th Herrscher as well as changes to the Open World stages for players to explore as well.
Festive captains can also look forward to summer events featuring the 13 Flame Chasers with summer outfits for Pardofelis, Mobius and Elysia.
In the season of sea and island breeze, Captains will be able to dive in a series of summertime limited events back-to-back! The 13 Flame-Chasers will stay as guests and embark on a fabulous adventure on a holiday island. Together they will team up and fight against enemies, or attend the grand survival game and aim to be the champion! By participating in the summer events, Captains will be able to gain Miss Pink Elf’s outfit Summer Miss Elf, Mobius’ new outfit Daughter of Corals that turn the serpentine girl into a gorgeous mermaid, as well as Pardo’s new outfit Midsummer Collector! Like before, the v5.9 update features tons of new content and bountiful rewards, so make sure not to miss out the fun!
