New leaks from Honkai: Star Rail have shared a first look at a range of brand new enemies set to be added to the game with the next playable world, Penacony. In the first few patches for the hugely popular HoYoverse RPG, players have been introduced to a variety of different enemies. From the Antimatter Legion soldiers invading the Herta space station to the icy beasts that roam Jarilo-IV, the game has already featured a plethora of sci-fi creatures to battle. The first teasers for the enemies of the game’s next world are now appearing.
While HoYoverse has not revealed any official details about it yet Honkai: Star RailLeaks and interviews have already begun testing the third full in-game world. An interview from earlier this year would reveal Penacony as the name of the next world players will visit during their journey aboard the Astral Express. Leaks and rumors suggest that Penacony is a living world centered around a mix of the United States and France of the late 18th and early 20th centuries. Now leaks give a first insight into the lineup of Penacony’s enemies.
A new image shared by Honkai: Star Rail Leaker HertaStation has revealed five enemies that players will encounter in Penacony. Several designs for Penacony’s enemies appear to be heavily inspired by steampunk, with both a bulky clockwork robot and a mechanical dog among the featured creatures. Penacony also wants to have several smaller floating enemies, including a robotic goblin holding a large cube and a floating mask. A bulky crystalline figure with arms and legs completes the group of five, boasting a uniquely non-mechanical appearance compared to their Penacony counterparts.
While not much is known about Penacony beyond the few leaks, the French-inspired world is one of several other locations being touted Honkai: Star Rail in the future. Silver Wolf’s introduction in version 1.1 would introduce her homeworld of Punklorde as a futuristic metropolis. Other worlds such as the planet Screwllum, the homeworld of Genius Society member Screwllum, and the home of the five-star character Kafka on Pteruges-V have also been hinted at through in-game lore. No release window was given for Penacony’s launch Honkai: Star Rail.
