The brand new Valkyries, Yae Sakura's A-rank soul-awakened Valkyrie battlesuit: Flame Sakitama and Theresa's S-rank Valkyrie battlesuit: Celestial Hymn, alongwith their matching soul-awakened form will share the same character levels, but ranks will be determined separately. Soul-Awakened characters also keep some of the original characters' levels and skill points. Some skills will be shared between the two forms. You can unlock shared skills by simply having 1 of the 2 forms attain the required rank. Skill materials are required to level up skills of awakened characters. These skill materials are found in the Open World beta game mode.
Obtaining these special Valkyrie are not that hard either, especially the Flame Sakitama which can be obtained by collecting enough Soul Shards via adventure tasks missions.

The story continues to unfold as we venture deeper into the Babylon Labs in Siberia...
Truth and warmth, illusion and escape. What lies imprisoned in this place? A restless mind or an abandoned, isolated heart?
[Ich liebe dich]

This new chapter and story offers players a dozen extra missions along with visually stunning cutscenes to keep you immersed for hours. Bonus missions are available in the new story as well, and while they may prove to be a challenge, they're certainly worth it!
Squad Snowwolf Raid
The last battle of those Valkyries was recorded in the Schicksal database, forever covered in dust. The records also included the final logs of Kiana's mother, the renowned S-rank Valkyrie Cecilia Schariac. As the Honkai corruption continues to growth, HQ has taken these records to create a simulation of Cecilia's battles in Siberia. Captain, these simulations will help improve your field leadership and command. Log number: N-876. Location: Babylon Labs. Time: 2000 CE, February 7, 1445 hours. Squad Snowwolf deployed! Brand new missions will put your squad to the test and see just how well you cooperate in order to take down other players.
Divine Keys Pavilion + Memorial Arena
The Memorial Arena is a battlefield simulation system designed and built by Schicksal for training Valkyries. Actual data is used to simulate the most powerful enemies encountered in the Honkai Universe in the Memorial Arena. Valkyries would attempt these challenging boss fights to improve their combat skills. Do you wish to put your skills to the test? The Memorial Arena is the perfect place to do so! As a heads up, this arena are recommended for Captains who have reached a level of level 50 or higher.
