Star Rail – Version 1.6 Goes Live on December 27th, Adds Ruan Mei and New Location

miHoYo has announced that Honkai: Star Rail’s next big update, Version 1.6, “Crown of the Mundane and Divine,” will go live on December 27th. It adds two new five-star characters – Ruan Mei and Dr. Ratio – and a new four-star character, Xueyi. Check out the trailer below.

The update sees a new area in Herta Space Station, the Seclusion Zone, opening up with a prototype Swarm King as a boss fight. The Simulated Universe sees an update in Gold and Gears, which simulates Nous and includes the Path of Erudition. This time, you get one dice that can equip up to six Dice Face effects, with new ones unlocked via Trailblaze Secrets.

If that weren’t enough, new stages for the Forgotten Hall, Pure Fiction, the Critter Pick Scavenging event (which involves raising various small creatures) and quality of life changes will also be added. Stay tuned for more details on Version 1.6 as we near its release.
