The Honkai Impact 3rd 5.5 update is on the way in February 2022, and it will bring with it the Durandal Palatinus Equinox battlesuit. To help people prepare for the new IMG-type S-rank battlesuit, miHoYo shared a video looking at how the team made it. In particular, it goes over the Guardian and Knight forms of it.
With Palatinus Equinox, players can swap between two roles for Durandal. In her Guardian form, she carries the shield and uses it when fighting. It is said to be better equipped to fight enemies with strong attacks. Specifically, “aggressive” ones were mentioned. When she shifts into Knight, she’ll ride atop a horse and use both it and her lance to attack. That form is the more agile of the two. It’s designed to deal with faster enemies, or perhaps even more of them.
Here’s the latest Honkai Impact 3rd making of video for Durandal. Note that it begins by looking at her backstory and motivations, so there will be spoilers if you aren’t caught up with the game. (English subtitles are available if you turn on closed captions.)
In addition to the new look at the 5.5 battlesuit, miHoYo also shared Honkai Impact 3rd music. The Paradox Original Soundtrack is available to stream now.
