Honkai Star Rail 1.4 free 4-star character event overview
According to officials, Aetherium Wars is an influential online gaming brand in the Honkai Star Rail universe. They have collaborated with the Interastral Peace Corporation (IPC) to host the offline tournament for fans on Jarillo VI.
During the holographic event, participants must use and nurture the Aether Spirit to compete for the championship title. These companions can be found in the Victory Zones and are considered digital replicas of the original entity created to take part in the fight.
Moreover, the IPC has launched the tournament to analyze the participating species as compatible fighting combat companions. They are classified under mechanical, humanoid, and aberrant types, with each countering another during battle. It works similarly to the Toughness mechanism, where enemies take extra damage from their weaknesses.
Hence, it is important to pick up the companion types accordingly to secure easy victories. In addition, one can unlock more powerful Aether Spirits as they advance through the competition.
The Honkai Star Rail 1.4 livestream has also highlighted that the Victory Zones will be spread out across Herta Space Station, Jarillo VI, and Xianzhou Luofu. The rewards are allotted to those who defeat the Championship Contender in each zone and complete the hyperlink challenges.
