The highlight of this update is the addition of Fyxestroll Garden, located in Xianzhou’s Luofu region. Described as a hotbed of paranormal activity, this area is shrouded in a gloomy dusk-like ambience. Players will encounter restless spirits and malevolent beings called heliobi as they unravel mysterious incidents.

Assemble your own ghost-hunting squad to explore the garden’s supernatural secrets. The shadowy Ten-Lords Commission may also lend a hand in dealing with sinister forces. With an unsettling atmosphere and paranormal cases, Fyxestroll Garden looks set to deliver thrilling adventures.

Three New Playable Characters Debut

The mysterious four-star Hanya uses her powers to read karmic sins and afflict foes with a Burden state. Her occult-themed skillset should prove useful against spectral enemies.

Finally, the elegant five-star Knight of Beauty, Argenti, unleashes a special Ultimate ability consuming large amounts of energy. Her noble upbringing gives her a cultured flair.

I've been playing games for pretty much as long as I can remember. There's about 15 years of gaming experience under my belt at this point. Destiny, Warframe, Halo, CoD and the list goes on. I was a brief world record holder for Destiny 2 speedrunning, as well as a season-long stint as a top 10 ranked PVP player. More recently, I've been shooting for the Celeste speedrun leaderboards. In-between sessions of getting too mad at shooters, I spend a lot of my time playing gacha games like Honkai Star Rail and Limbus Company.
