Honkai: Star Rail has revealed models of each member of the Annihilation Gang, giving players an insight into their design. Honkai: Star Rail fans barely know anything about the Annihilation Gang, since this organization has had a limited presence in the story thus far. It’s comprised of two factions that have at least four members, with one being Duke Inferno, who will allegedly be revealed as a new villain in the game.
With the arrival of Penacony in Honkai: Star Rail‘s update 2.0, Trailblazers will thoroughly explore a new story that revolves around some characters from mysterious organizations. They will journey through a dreamlike region, known as the Planet of Festivities, where they can encounter intriguing NPCs and collect treasure chests. Besides Misha and Sparkle, the Astral Express Crew will ask Black Swan, Acheron, and Aventurine for help in the upcoming destination to unearth the secrets of the ongoing Trailblaze story.
Honkai: Star Rail Leak Teases Rumored Character Jade’s Kit
Honkai: Star Rail’s newest leaks are teasing the gameplay for an unrevealed character, introducing Jade as a prospective new support unit.
Honkai: Star Rail‘s Twitter account uploaded official art of the Annihilation Gang, giving players their first look at some character models. Although members of this organization, including Duke Inferno and Caterina, recently showed up in a trailer, players could see them in only a few scenes. From the looks of it, Duke Inferno is a non-human being who has a burning head with long curved horns. The character wears a striped suit and uses a purple stone as a pocket square. Caterina, on the other hand, combines dark purple trousers with a jacket, wearing a big hat and a cream belt.
Constance dons a white flurry dress and a floppy hat decorated with a beautiful flower. Akash, on the flip side, looks to be an instrumentalist who wears white trousers, black gloves, a yellow tie, and a greenish shirt. Lastly, Honkai: Star Rail shared the model of Dubra, revealing that she is the child of Duke Inferno. The young girl has different colored eyes and carries a book with her like Dr. Ratio.
Multiple sources claimed these characters will be added to Honkai: Star Rail’s playable cast in a future version. There are also signs of some of them being introduced as a villain. Players will have to wait at least a couple of months to learn more about the Annihilation Gang.
In addition to recruitable units, Honkai: Star Rail will bring several gameplay updates in 2.0, such as combat mechanics that can be used in challenging encounters against Penacony-based enemies. As usual, there will be new quality-of-life features, including the Discard Relic function that improves the player’s experience. Unless there is a change in the schedule, version 2.0 will come out on February 7.
