The wait is finally over. Developer HoYoverse has just released the first major update to their space-faring RPG Honkai Star Rail. This Version 2.0 update adds in a brand-new planet: Penacony, as well as a plethora of new areas for players to explore and quality of life improvements. However, there are a couple requirements that you must meet before exploring the Planet of Festivities.
In order to access Penacony, players must have their Trailblazer Level at least at Level 34, and have completed the following Trailblaze Mission quest lines in order to unlock the Long Day’s Journey Into Night Trailblaze Mission:
- Herta Space Station: Today Is Yesterday’s Tomorrow
- Jarilo-IV: In the Withering Wintry Night and In the Sweltering Morning Sun
- The Xianzhou Luofu: Windswept Wanderlust, Topclouded Towerthrust, and Karmic Clouds Faded, War Banners Folded
There are many other quests besides those that were released up until this version of Honkai Star Rail. However, those missions and events are not mandatory to complete in order to unlock the quest, though HoYoverse recommends you still do those quests, as they can provide a sort of interlude to the story. Once you’ve met the requirements, you’ll receive a message through the Trailblazer’s phone, telling you the Astral Express is ready to go for your next destination. Afterwards, just teleport to the Parlor Car and accept the quest from there.
