miHoYo’s Honkai Impact 3rd Launches v5.1 [Pristine Realm] on September 16

Shanghai, China, September 10, 2021 — Honkai Impact 3rd, the ARPG title from the global interactive entertainment developer and publisher miHoYo, is launching v5.1 [Pristine Realm] on September 16. Elysia, the lovely Miss Pink Elf♪, who is the first DPS to use a bow in the game, will board the Hyperion as a farmable S-rank battlesuit with the new bow [Whisper of the Past] and the new [Pristine Elf] stigma set. Three more battlesuits will also join the Elysian Realm. In the upcoming v5.1, players can experience a new story arc, a rerun of Sanka Saga, and the permanent LITE feature.

Honkai Impact 3rd is set in a modern world corrupted by mysterious energy known as [Honkai]. A tenacious resistance force made up of brave girls known as [Valkyries], who possess an anti-Honkai genome, leads in the battle against the spreading Honkai disaster, and fights for everything that is beautiful in this world. The game’s stunning cel-shaded graphics, immersive stories, deep customization, and infinite combo action have won it an international following since its launch on mobile devices, frequently topping the App Store’s and Google Play’s download charts worldwide. Since late 2019, Honkai Impact 3rd has been ported to PC with cross-platform play support, drawing more players to the acclaimed experience.

In v5.1 [Pristine Realm], Elysia, the second-in-command of the Flame-Chasers, will be playable. Despite her graceful and charming appearance, she also keeps her distance and has an air of secrecy.

Watch v5.1 Trailer:

In combat, Elysia’s Basic ATK and QTE will attach Crystalline Seeds to enemies, making them more vulnerable to her attacks. Elysia has an Infatuation meter that regenerates over time, which is consumed by Charged Shot: Cupid’s Bolt that fires multiple arrows. If Cupid’s Bolt hits an enemy to which a Crystalline Seed is attached, the seed will explode and detonate nearby Crystalline Seeds, producing a chain reaction that damages enemies heavily. The kiss she blows when using her Ultimate is graceful yet deadly. It creates a crystalline dome overhead, within which Cupid’s Bolt ricochets wildly to damage enemies several times.

After the v5.1 update, Captains can purchase S-rank battlesuit [Miss Pink Elf♪]’s base card and fragments with Ancient Legacy and Ancient Willpower in the War Treasury. Bright Knight: Excelsis, the long-absent Luna Kindred, and our old friend Striker Fulminata will join the Elysian Realm. The new bow [Whisper of the Past], its PRI-ARM form [Whisper of the Past: Sonnet], and the new stigmata [Elysia (T, M, B)] will be released as well. Additionally, Starchasm Nyx is finally embracing her magic girl side with her first outfit.

In v5.1[Pristine Realm], more stories and rewards await Captains. The introduction of Chapter XXV-EX marks the beginning of a new saga, in which the focus is shifted back to Schicksal. The sensational Sanka Saga event will return for Captains to explore the gripping story and earn loads of rewards. Last but not least, the fan-favorite LITE session will be made permanently available!

Fascinated by anything horror and true crime. Crazy for open-world, MMORPGs - her first introduction to gaming was Metal Slug, Dragon Warrior, and Ragnarok Online. Played all GTAs and is anxiously waiting for the 6th installment. Inseparable from her fluffy furbaby, Teemo!
