Honkai: Star Rail Update 2.0 Now Live – Penacony, New Characters And More

Hoyoverse fans, do you like jazz? Because the developers sure do. Honkai: Star Rail’s latest Update 2.0 is now live, adding a new realm to visit and surprise, surprise, it’s adding a jazz-inspired, art deco decorated new world to visit. Just like Genshin Impact has had recently.

Fellow Trailblazers will be visiting the realm of Penacony in the latest content update. There will be new Trailblaze Missions (that will continue on until Update 2.2, with epilogues set to be available in Update 2.3).

The crew will be visiting Penacony as honoured guests for the Charmony Festival. What was a backwater planet used to housed prisoners has now become a luxurious resort planet controlled by The Family.

Exploration in Penacony will involve players plugging into the Dreampool, and later Dreamwalk to traverse gravity-defying planes.
