Honkai: Star Rail Leak Teases Free Four-Star Character in Version 2.0
A recent leak is teasing that Honkai: Star Rail players will be receiving a free four-star character during the Version 2.0 update.
A Honkai: Star Rail leak from Hakush revealed many details about upcoming units Misha, Sparkle, and Black Swan, giving players an idea of their skill sets. Sparkle deals Quantum damage to enemies and increases the CRIT damage for her teammates for a few turns. The character’s supportive kit features an ultimate that recovers four skill points for the entire team. Misha, on the other hand, seems to be a DPS unit rather than a support, dealing AoE Ice damage using her ultimate. She can regenerate energy, strike multiple enemies, and create a dimension that stops all actions.
