Ahead of Honkai: Star Rail‘s livestream for the Version 1.5 update later this week on 3 November, Hoyoverse just started teasing three new characters coming to the game. Chances are, Ruan Mei, Dr. Ratio (what a name!) and Xueyi will be playable once Version 1.6 drops.
Ruan Mei and Dr. Ratio are 5-star characters, while Xueyi – who has actually appeared in-game before – is a 4-star unit. Ruan Mei is also an Ice character that walks the Path of Harmony, while Dr. Ratio is an Imaginary Hunt unit. As for Xueyi, she’s a Quantum Destruction character.
Given that Ruan Mei is a Harmony character – she will be the only 5-star Harmony unit aside from Bronya – it is likely that she will be a support-oriented character. Hunt units like Dr. Ratio, on the other hand, are usually damage dealers, and the same can be said for a Destruction character like Xueyi.
Honkai: Star Rail characters teased by Hoyoverse, just like Genshin Impact, are usually playable in future updates. Considering that the company has already posted teasers for Huohuo, Argenti, and Hanya, which are expected to be detailed on the Version 1.5 livestream this Friday on November 3, it’s safe to assume that Ruan Mei, Dr. Ratio, and Xueyi will be added to Star Rail in Version 1.6.
