The new mode sees players navigating a board game-like layout across three Planes, fighting new Swarm enemies and a new boss.
miHoYo’s Honkai: Star Rail received its latest update on August 30th, but some content, like the latest Simulated Universe experience, faced a short delay. The latter is now available and introduces The Swarm Disaster, an entirely different branch with its own rules and mechanics. Check out the latest Keeping Up With Star Rail to learn more.
The Swarm Disaster is like a board game, where players navigate tiles with different encounters. At the end of each, they roll a die for buffs corresponding to a Path. There are three Planes to explore, and at the end of each is a boss before facing a new boss – The Swarm: True Stings. Complete enough chapters to unlock the Path of the Propagation for the regular Simulated Universe.
Honkai: Star Rail is available for PC, iOS and Android but will launch later this year for PS5. Sign-ups for a console technical test are live.
