When Is The New Release Date For Honkai Star Rail 2.1?
Due to the celebrations for the Chinese New Year, the release date of Honkai Star Rail 2.1 has been delayed by one week, with the new version now scheduled for March 28, 2024.
While players might be disappointed about the relay, it’s worth noting that with version 2.0 extended until March 27, the stage is set for an exciting lineup of events. This includes the game’s first anniversary celebrations during the second phase of 2.1 on April 26.
Additionally, the extension of version 2.0 ensures that players will still have plenty of content to enjoy leading up to the highly anticipated update. Events such as the Dreamjolt TV event, running from February 29 to March 25, and the Penacony Food Fest event, lasting from March 6 to 18, will keep players engaged.
As for the update itself, version 2.1 promises to introduce new characters. Here is the list of Honkai Star Rail characters who will be gracing the banners in version 2.1:
- Acheron, self-proclaimed Galaxy Ranger of Nihility and Lightning.
- Aventurine, a senior IPC Strategic Investment Department manager and one of the Ten Stonehearts, wielding Preservation and Imaginary powers.
- Gallagher, a security officer of the Bloodhound Family at Penacony and a fire-wielding mixologist in his spare time.
Speculations suggest that Gallagher will be featured during Aventurine’s banner in the latter half of Honkai Star Rail version 2.1. As the Honkai: Star Rail community adjusts to the new schedule, anticipation for the 2.1 update and its upcoming anniversary celebration continues to grow with the promise of new characters and special anniversary events.
