Honkai Impact 3rd developer and publisher HoYoverse has announced that the game’s latest 5.7 update will be releasing tomorrow, May 19, 2022. The new update, dubbed Song of Perdition, will introduce two new characters, new plot reveals involving the Elysian Realm, events, outfits, and more.
The two new Captains the 5.7 update is introducing are Aponia and Eden. Aponia’s battlesuit is called the Disciplinary Perdition, an S-rank BIO-type battlesuit equipped with a Chakram that deals lightning damage, while Golden Diva: Eden is equipped with an IMG-type ranged SP battlesuit that also deals lightning damage.
Here’s a description of Aponia, who is known as the strongest psychic MANTIS:
“When facing the strongest psychic MANTIS, people found not only holiness in Aponia, but also the pressure – her shining eyes always stay half-closed, perhaps to better perceive the so-called “strings of destiny”. The outfit of Aponia features a veil and thorns, a figure holding gems on skirt hemlines, and texture like dazzling butterfly wings, adding to herself a holy and mesmerizing appearance. On the battlefield, she can inflict multiple rounds of lightning strikes on enemies nearby, and unleash her Inhibitor’s Adjudication to make herself airborne, raining down the unstoppable discipline trial from above!”
The storyline of the 5.7 update will focus on Elysia and The Thirteen Flame-Chasers, and feature the new open world of Elysium Everlasting. Players will be able to choose between two modes of exploration, Story Mode or Map Exploration Mode.
The Shattered Dimensions theme event will also launch with the new update. Participating in the event and defeating the Latent Hunter will reward players with Bright Knight: Excelsis’ outfit Gale Hunter, Golden Diva Fragments and Crystals. There will also be new Spend Bonuses in the Felistore, where players can draw Supply Drops and purchase participating bundles to obtain Reverist Calico’s new outfit, Spectral Claws.
Honkai Impact 3rd‘s 5.7 update, Song of Perdition, is launching on iOS, Android, and PC, tomorrow on May 19, 2022.
