Honkai Star Rail Version 2.0 Coming on February 6, Adds 3 New Playable Characters

HoYoverse has announced that Honkai Star Rail Version 2.0 is launching on February 6, bringing with it the much-anticipated new realm, Penacony, along with new maps, storylines, and companions.

In Honkai Star Rail Version 2.0, the highly anticipated mysterious lady, Black Swan, will make a dazzling debut in the story of Penacony. As a 5-star character, she is not only an outstanding oracle, but also a Memokeeper in the Garden of Recollection, exuding an air of nobility, mystery, and elegance.

When Black Swan uses Basic ATKs or Skills to attack enemies in combat, there is a certain probability of applying a special stackable DoT effect called Arcana to the enemies. Under the Arcana state, Black Swan triggers additional effects based on the number of Arcana stacks the target is under. Moreover, as the stacks accumulate, the DoT inflicted on the enemy will correspondingly increase.

At The Family’s feast, another remarkable 5-star character, Sparkle, is also set to join the Trailblazers’ team in Honkai Star Rail 2.0. Sparkle, the enigmatic Masked Fool, is dedicated to the pursuit of Elation through any means necessary. As a dangerous master of drama, she excels at changing identities and indulges in playing various roles.

In battles, Sparkle’s presence will provide an additional increase to the team’s maximum Skill Point. Moreover, her unique Skill not only boosts the CRIT DMG of a designated teammate but also Advance Forwards that teammate’s Action, providing more strategic options in battle. After Sparkle unleashes her Ultimate, she can restore multiple Skill Points for the team in one go. The addition of Sparkle to the team not only broke the limitation of the team’s Skill Point, it also allows the team to deal more damage.

As a 4-star character, Misha works as the doorman at The Reverie. Dreaming of becoming a cosmic adventurer like his grandfather, Misha is passionate about learning about various interstellar experiences the hotel guests share.

In combat, the more Skill Points the team uses in battle, the more DMG Misha’s Ultimate will inflict. Additionally, when Misha uses his Ultimate, there is a chance to Freeze the target, making him a reliable companion worth entrusting.
