About the game
Honkai Impact 3rd is set in a modern world corrupted by mysterious forces called Honkai. A strong resistance made up of Valkyries, brave girls with Honkai-resistant genes, lead people in a battle of survival and fight for all that is beautiful in the world. Since its launch on mobile devices, the game has gained an international following and regularly tops the App Store and Google Play download charts. The game was ported to PC at the end of 2019 with cross-platform support, and will be available on the Epic Games Store during v6.1.
What’s new in v.6.1?
A lot actually. Jade Knight, Li Sushang who has been in hibernation for centuries, wakes up and starts her new adventures in the current world. In the distant past, she was the star pupil of the Wanderer’s House, heading out on a solo journey and take on trials – all before she found herself caught in a storm of conflicts and got severely injured. As an S-rank PSY-type dealing Ice DMG, Li Sushang wields a blade for melee attacks and generates flying swords for ranged attacks.
There is a special two-part event (Midnight Chronicle), where you will get to know more about Li Sushang and her past. Tales of Xia: Phantasia is a co-op event, where maps randomly reset daily with specific objectives for each map. There are 12 maps grouped under 3 types: speedrun, survival, and scoring, for players to go solo or play with friends and form a team of up to 4 members.
Further development of the story in Chapter XXXII will carry on the narrative from a new stage – the moon. This chapter will conclude the Part 1 of the main story. Kiana and Mei are finally going to reunite!
Honkai Impact 3rd is available on Android, iOS and PC via a dedicated client. The new update will also bring the game on the Epic Games Store. You can download the game from the links below, or visit the official website for more information and system requirements.
