A recent leak has provided an early glimpse into the forthcoming events of Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.5, slated to be released around November 15. This follows Version 1.4, which was the game’s shortest update to date, spanning just five weeks.
In the previous installment, the main storyline culminated with the departure of the Astral Express Crew from the Xianzhou Luofu, setting their course for the next world known as Penacony. Anticipation is high among players for the narrative to continue in Version 1.5, particularly with the introduction of the five-star banner character Argenti, who is said to be a pivotal figure in the unfolding story within Penacony.
In addition to Argenti, Version 1.5 will bring two more noteworthy characters into the mix: the five-star character Huohuo and the four-star Hanya.
According to the leak, three intriguing events are set to unfold in Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.5. First off, there’s “A Foxian Tale of the Haunted,” an event where players will be tasked with eradicating demons around the devastated Creation Furnace. Notable characters Huohuo, Sushang, and Guinaifen are expected to play prominent roles in this event.
Next up is the “Boulder Town Knack Exhibition Tournament,” which appears to be a fresh take on one of Honkai: Star Rail’s initial limited-time events.
Finally, the “Stellar Shadowseeker” event is hinted at as a March 7th-themed endeavor. Players will be challenged to investigate anomalies in the photographs taken during their expedition.
Beyond these speculated events, Version 1.5 is rumored to introduce World 8 in the Simulated Universe. This update will feature new Planar Ornaments, specifically the Penacony Land of Dreams and Firmament Frontline Glamoth. The leak, however, didn’t divulge details about the boss battles in World 8.
Players have expressed great interest in learning more about Penacony and the potential release of a Companion Mission for Guinaifen. Additionally, there’s curiosity about the potential availability of March 7th’s skin, which made a brief appearance in Version 1.4.
It’s worth noting that none of these leaked events have been officially confirmed by HoYoverse. Fans can likely expect more detailed information to be revealed during the Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.5 Special Program stream. In the meantime, players have ample time to collect Stellar Jades for the upcoming banner characters and to wrap up ongoing missions like Aetherium Wars and Planar Infinity, if they haven’t already.
