The new 1.1 update “Galactic Roaming”, is launching on June 7th and adds three new playable characters: Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong, alongside new gameplay features and more.
Here’s a rundown on the new update:
Trailblazers can experience a vast universe abundant in distinctive cultures, landscapes, and scenery. From the Herta Space Station where the knowledge reserve of the universe and the forthcoming journey has been granted, to Jarilo-VI where numerous dangers and conflicts are frozen beneath the snow, to Xianzhou Luofu, the silkpunk flagship infused with eastern fantasy where development and dispute focusing on the topic of immortality.
The latest update brings three new playable characters – Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong, who appeared in the intergalactic story before and can now be officially recruited to assist in the grand space fantasy odyssey.
Silver Wolf, a super genius hacker within the Stellaron Hunters, breaks through all defense systems as easily as pie. She is a Quantum-Type character following the Path of Nihility and can apply different debuffs to enemies to improve her allies’ combat superiority. Outside of combat, her Technique comes in handy as she is able to deal damage and reduce the enemy’s Toughness regardless of their Weakness. When she unleashes her Ultimate, Silver Wolf will bash enemies, gaining the upper hand for the team by dealing damage to the enemies as well as reducing their defense.
The other character, Luocha, a wandering merchant with an elegant look and a gentlemanly demeanor, seems suspicious by carrying a mysterious coffin all the time. As an Imaginary-Type character following the Path of Abundance and a man with medical knowledge, Luocha is a master of recuperation. His unique Skill guarantees “emergency healing” when any alley is in danger, without consuming any Skill points. His Ultimate “Death Wish” dispels 1 buff of all enemies and deals Imaginary damage.
Lastly, Yukong is the Sky-Faring Helm Master, the leader who oversees all matters relating to flight, including commerce, cargo, and passengers of Xianzhou Luofu. As an Imaginary-Type character following the Path of Harmony, Yukong’s skill set centers around assisting companions. Her days on the front lines may be over, but her battle mindset and instinct don’t fade away!
Besides bonding with these new characters, Trailblazers can roam the worlds and uncover mysteries, experiencing refreshing gameplay provided by the Version 1.1 update. In the “Starhunt Game” event, the Trailblazers receive an invite from Herta Space Station’s network security engineer, Leonard, assisting him to locate the electronic graffiti hidden across the station and uncover the secrets within. As part of the compensation, the graffiti designs can be collected and applied to the in-game surfaces. In addition, in the city of Belobog, where citizens have finally been saved from the threat of Stellaron, the History Museum is getting ready to be reopened. In the “Everwinter City Museum Ledger of Curiosities” event, the Trailblazer will spare no effort to track down clues, recover the lost exhibits, and run the business as the museum manager.
A series of trials will be added through “Stellar Flare,” “Garden of Plenty,” and “Lab Assistants in Position”, some of which will put the combat techniques and the strategic thinking of the Trailblazer to the test, while providing bountiful rewards. Meanwhile, three new Companion Missions provide opportunities to gain in-depth stories of these intriguing characters. Some useful functional features will be implemented as well, such as the friend chat and automatic enemy pinpointing, ensuring a smoother gaming experience.
