What to Expect
The half-year anniversary event launching on September 13 will surely please fans who have continued to support Honkai Impact 3rd, the definitive ACG Action title for the mobile platform. And the best part is that you will also be getting this great, juicy update packed full of goodness and over-the-top battlesuits for free! That's right! FREE with all the love from the Honkai Impact 3rd developer miHoYo!
For this update review, we’re going to dive into the content you’re going to be enjoying by breaking it down into sections and explaining what we loved about each element. Let’s get right down to business in our update review for Honkai Impact 3rd.
TWO NEW VALKYRIES: Players will first notice is that Honkai Impact 3rd has added not one but two new Valkyries! Yae Sakura has acquired a new A-rank samura-themed battlesuit Flame Sakitama, while Theresa—the best principal in the world—has also gained the new angelic S-rank Celestial Hymn battlesuit. While these two new Valkyrie battlesuits might be the same girls you’ve grown accustomed to, they pack quite a punch with some slick new abilities. Yae Sakura, already OP enough on her own, will be dishing out wicked combo moves with her Flame Sakitama battlesuit, allowing her to literally slice and dice through enemies while reducing them to burning cinders. What’s great about the Flame Sakitama suit is that getting it isn’t based on how lucky you are with the crate drops! You can make her yours by collecting Soul Shards to unlock the fiery Samurai warrior via the Open World adventure tasks and missions you can take!
NEW STORY: Chapter 6. The new chapter in this new update continues the Honkai Impact 3rd official campaign with a dozen new missions and fantastic CG cutscenes. We blitzed through the new chapter pretty quickly in an about an hour or so, but Story missions are offered at harder difficulties for extra EXP and matz. There's also bonus missions that can prove quite a challenge if you're under the level requirement. The worst thing that we found about the Honkai Impact 3rd update is that we have to wait a bit longer for Chapter 7 and that might kill us with anticipation.
NEW ELEMENTS: Raids and Memorial Arena. The September update for Honkai Impact 3rd will be featuring new events such as the Soul Throne Raid and Memorial Arena for Captains who have reached LV50 or higher. New missions in the form of the Snowwolf Raid will put your team work to the test and allow you to demonstrate your mastery of Valkyrie fighting skills to other players. All this will leave you occupied and praying for more game time!
Half-year Anniversary events and outfit: Starting from September 13 to October 4, Honkai Impact 3rd will be launching the St. Freya's Homecoming Fair as its semi-annual event! Take part in new activities for a chance to win a mouth-watering new outfit: Aeterna Purum, and we know that we're going to do everything we can to earn that mouth-watering dress (and put it on our waifu Mei) once the event goes live!
Honey's Gameplay Consensus:
- Two new Valkyries with new skills and fighting styles
- Several new missions and events
- Chapter 6 will give you even more story mode to enjoy and reveal more of this mysterious tale unfolding
- New weapons and costumes to obtain
- Once again completely free
- Honestly just more time we now will lose as we continue our addiction to Honkai Impact 3rd
