After being announced almost a month ago during a press conference by miHoYo, the first major collaboration between their two most successful titles, Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact, will finally be a reality with the arrival of the “Outworld Traveler” event within the next few days.
This crossover will kick off in Honkai Impact 3rd. In case you are not familiar with it, it's one of the first miHoYo games released in the Western, which is why the decision to bring this clash between their two most popular franchises is more than deserved.
Outworld Traveler: Gameplay Details and Featured Characters
This exclusive event will arrive as part of the Honkai Impact 3rd update 9.4, also called “Outworld Traveler”. Through this, players will meet Fischl, known within the game as the Prinzessin der Verurteilung!, through an adventure of technology and magic between the main factions of the game, Schicksal and Anti-Entropy.
With the arrival of Fischl, she will be the first archer within Honkai Impact 3rd. Her play style will be based on exploiting the enemy's weak points, allowing players to increase damage and respond to blows by shooting at the enemy's weak points.
Plus, you'll be able to quickly shoot along with her Raven Oz and launch QTE on the field to help her teammates.
Along with the archer, Keqing, another popular character from Genshin Impact, will also be available as a special guest of the event, being playable only in certain sections of story battles, plus she will guide players through their missions.
Outworld Traveler: Rewards and Dates
As in previous events within Honkai Impact 3rd, this crossover will bring with it new rewards through the “Outworld Quest” campaign.
To kick off the event on the right foot, players will be able to claim Fischl's Battlesuit for free upon first login, as well as SP cards and a free emblem that will make Paimon follow you as a companion, just like she does with the Traveler in Genshin Impact.
Players will also be able to complete certain missions and challenges to earn Theresa's Heat of Trifolium crossover outfit, which is based on the cute and explosive Klee, stigmata, shards, and crystals.
Finally, players can freely explore the maps, interact with NPCs and items, and unlock fun subquests with chibi characters, as well as discover a big surprise as part of the game's main story at the end of the event.
The crossover event between Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact will be available from 9th July, 2021, in any of its versions for Android, iOS and PC.
