They’ll start with Dreamflux Reef, which is very different from the previous Penaconian fantasies.

Honkai: Star Rail Version 2.3 will bring two new playable characters and reruns

1. Robin

If you are among the fans who have been eagerly waiting for Robin to arrive as a 5-star character, then the wait is over. Robin is known for her elegance and grace, earning fame across the cosmos. Her music, powered by the Path of Harmony also resonates with various beings. In battles, Robin smoothly uses her melodies to give crucial support and buffs to allies.

When she uses her Ultimate ability, Robin gives a morale-boosting performance, granting all allies immediate action and stronger buffs. Plus, during her Ultimate, Robin deals extra damage to enemies after each ally’s attack and stays immune to Crowd Control debuffs.

2. Boothill

Adding to the roster is Boothill, a 5-star character joining the second half of the update. I’m excited about his appearance as a cyborg cowboy exploring the cosmic frontier with a spirited and untamed nature. As a Galaxy Ranger, Boothill is focused on punishing the wicked, especially targeting the Interastral Peace Corporation.

Boothill’s playstyle is about dueling one enemy at a time, taunting them to increase damage for both sides. His Ultimate move inflicts Physical element Weakness, causing substantial damage and slowing down enemy actions, showing off the Galaxy Ranger’s strength.

3. Fu Xuan and Topaz rerun

Version 2.2 is getting ready for the highly anticipated rerun of Fu Xuan and Topaz as returning characters. Fu Xuan is well-known as one of the game’s top tanks, while Topaz is praised for exceptional follow-up damage support. Both characters are expected to return in rerun banners during both halves of Version 2.2.
