Developer miHoYo has announced Honkai: Star Rail‘s new 1.3 update: Celestial Eyes Above Mortal Ruins is coming this month.

Honkai: Star Rail‘s new 1.3 update arrives on August 30, 2023, and will bring a new area, a major update to the simulated universe, and new characters.

Here’s a rundown on the new update:

In the unfolding story, Jing Yuan and Dan Heng united to vanquish Phantylia and resolve the Ambrosial Arbor crisis. Now, as the dust settles, the major part of the recovery effort is to help people get their lives back on track. In Version 1.3, a new area called Aurum Alley emerges, eagerly awaiting a much-needed revitalization. Trailblazers can weigh in by employing strategic logistics planning and efficient cargo organization to shape the alley’s destiny back to its former glory.

Meanwhile, in Version 1.3, Herta’s renowned Simulated Universe undergoes a remarkable upgrade with the introduction of “The Swarm Disaster,” which names after a swarm catastrophe from ages ago that Tayzzyronth, the Aeon of Propagation, caused. To uncover the intricate history and the confrontation between Tayzzyronth and other Aeons, Trailblazers will navigate through dynamically generated domains, face various challenges along the way, and hopefully unlock the thrilling “Path of Propagation” within the Simulated Universe.

Honkai: Star Rail is now available for PC via its official website and the Epic Games Store, iOS (via the App Store) and Android via (Google Play) and sometime later for PS4 and PS5.
