Honkai Impact 3rd Gameplay

Honkai Impact 3rd is an action RPG that combines different types of gameplay. In addition to a flexible combat system, this game has elements of the platformer, dungeon crawler and hack-and-slash genres. In addition, this project features social activities and multiplayer modes.

One of the features of Honkai Impact 3rd is deep lore and a complex storyline, which is served to players in the form of separate stories divided into chapters. Additional game activities allow you to get to know the characters better and explore the history of the Honkai Impact world. The developers do not show many of the story elements directly; instead, they allow players to pick up the pieces and build the picture of the game's world based on the experienced content. The main plot of Honkai concentrates on the relationships between the main characters, which in turn are quite tense.

The gameplay consists of going through various raids and arenas; the project features both competitive modes and the usual multiplayer modes. Players in Honkai Impact 3rd can team up in groups (here called Armadas) and work together to clear dungeons to gain resources and various rewards. The boss fights in the game are quite challenging, so it makes sense to pick up a company to play together. Also, it will be easier to learn the game basics from an experienced teammate.

In addition to multiplayer activities, this game has several single-player game modes. There are several of them: first, there is the story-oriented "Story" mode, which consists mostly of dialogues and interactions between the protagonists. The next mode is "Chronicles", in which you can complete side quests and learn the personal stories of the Valkyries. The game also has an "Open World" where you can farm materials and complete quests.

Newcomers to Honkai Impact most likely will be confused about navigation and controls of the characters, especially if this is the first action RPG for a player. The game has many activities and various development systems: you can enhance weapons, level up characters, convert resources, change artifacts (stigmas), or participate in temporary events. Despite the presence of guides for beginners, this game is still quite hard to master.

The gameplay in Honkai Impact 3rd differs from most other RPGs. The player can control not one character, but the armada of three girls called Valkyries. Battles against enemies and bosses take place in real-time. During combat, the player can freely move around the arena and change the Valkyries to use different abilities in battle. The heroes are divided into different types determined by weapons. It allows players to diversify the gameplay and change the battle tactics right on the battlefield.

Each Valkyrie has a unique design, attack pattern, abilities, special skills, and type of character. Depending on their characteristics, the heroines have different roles in the team. It's possible to change the stats of Valkyries with a variety of weapons and equipment, as well as stigmata. These items also can be improved with in-game resources.
