Firefly Lover, a prominent leaker in the Honkai: Star Rail community, has sparked excitement with a recent post hinting at a major new event. The details are still under wraps, but the leak suggests a “tournament mode” where players will engage in duels against other characters.

While specifics are scarce, the leak mentions the possibility of facing off against familiar faces from your roster. Popular characters like Kafka, Topaz, and Aventurine are thrown around as potential contenders. The leak even teases the possibility of “unusual combinations,” raising questions about potential team battles and seeing characters like Topaz and Cocolia fight side-by-side.

This wouldn’t be the first time players have crossed blades with their own crew. Honkai: Star Rail already features playable characters as in-game bosses, like Kafka, Yanqing, and Argenti. The Simulated Universe also throws players against playable characters as final bosses within its different worlds.

With Version 2.5 targeted for a September release, players have some time to wait and speculate. While the tournament event remains shrouded in mystery, it adds another layer of anticipation to the upcoming update.

Speaking of upcoming content, whispers are already circulating about the next world players might explore. Leaks suggest four potential destinations, including the underwater realm of Lushaka and the Stellaron Disaster-stricken planet of Melustanin. Don’t forget the glimpses of other intriguing locations like Silver Wolf’s homeworld of Punklorde and additional Xianzhou Alliance vessels. The vast universe of Honkai: Star Rail seems poised for continuous expansion, offering a thrilling journey for aspiring Astral Blades.
