Honkai: Star Rail – Version 2.2 Arrives on May 8, Check Out Overview & Trailer

The developers of turn-based RPG Honkai: Star Rail have been on hand during the latest special program to introduce players to the upcoming Version 2.2. Titled “Then Wake to Weep”, it will continue Penacony’s heartwarming and wholesome story.

During the stream, the developers have shared the first look at the upcoming content, including the trailer, some story bits, banner contents, events overview, and more. Let’s check it out together!

Penacony’s Charmony Festival, the big event that all these groups of people including the Nameless were invited to, has entered its countdown phase. With it, Version 2.2 brings Penacony’s adventure to its climax in the new Trailblaze Mission “The Fool Always Rings Twice”. The update also brings the long-awaited singer Robin (5-star Physical Harmony) and the newcomer Boothill (5-star Physical Hunt) to the roster. While the cowboy didn’t have the same presence as other characters, his phone call with Black Swan was quite memorable.

New characters mean new Light Cones, right? In addition to Robin’s and Boothill’s signatures, the new Version will introduce two new 4-star Light Cones. The first one, Harmony Light Cone ‘For Tomorrow’s Journey’ is coming from the main event of the version and can be acquired and Superimposed completely for free. Meanwhile, the other one – Boundless Choreo, Nihility – is added to the gacha pool.

“The cosmic songstress Robin’s new album, “INSIDE,” will be released on May 9th.”

However, new characters, Light Cones and a storyline are not all that is coming in Version 2.2: Then Wake to Weep. Trailblazers will also get to explore three new locations: Dreamflux Reef, Moment of Scorchsand and the Penacony Grand Theater. The update also brings a new fearsome boss enemy: “Harmonious Choir” The Great Septimus, poised to deliver a remarkable performance at the Charmony Festival. Do you have what it takes to defeat him? We’ll get to find out soon!

The livestream also heavily hinted at something new and exciting coming for everyone’s favorite galactic baseballer. The art features a cool new hat that wasn’t there before, after all! Don’t forget to claim the Promo Codes from the livestream and participate in the Anniversary event!
