In this update, players can continue exploring The Chasm and join an unexpected team of diverse members to discover a long-sealed history about the people, monsters, and the yakshas. Two new playable characters, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, will also star in the story as the Traveler’s capable allies.

Perilous Trail

The new characters, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu, who accompany the Traveler in The Chasm, will join the game as playable characters with their own Story Quest and Hangout Events available on the day the Version Update comes out.

Yelan is a Hydro DPS character that combines rapid attacks with agile mobility. Kuki Shinobu is the surprisingly reliable and capable deputy leader of the Arataki Gang. She’s a support character who wields a sword and manipulates the Electro element. She can consume her own HP to heal other party members while dealing periodical Electro DMG to nearby opponents.
