During the Honkai: Star Rail version 1.2 special program, HoYoVerse revealed its release date. It’ll fall on July 19, 2023. You will likely be able to pre-download the launcher onto your PC or mobile phone before that date so as to start playing immediately. However, mobile players will still need to re-download the updated version of the game from the app store.

Luocha will remain in the Warp until Version 1.2 comes out, and the current Stellar Flare event will end then as well. However, due to issues regarding the event, the Belobog museum one will continue all the way to August 2023, and will thus still be available in Version 1.2.

It will introduce the playable versions of Kafka and Blade, as well as continue the story quest. Not only will there be new maps to explore, but there will also be new bosses to fight. There will also be several new events, such as a treasure hunting one that’ll grant awards like Stellar Jades. Version 1.2 will also introduce chat boxes to spruce up your in-game messages to your friends.

Honkai: Star Rail is readily available on the Windows PC and mobile devices. The release date for version 1.2 of Honkai: Star Rail will come out on July 19, 2023.
