Honkai: Star Rail Version 2.2 May Release Date Set

Version 2.2 of Honkai: Star Rail now has a release date of May 8, 2024, which is when it will arrive and bring new story missions and characters. The announcement comes on the tail of the Version 2.2 special program stream, which previewed some of the upcoming additions.

The update, titled “Then Wake to Weep,” is set to bring with it Boothill and Robin as playable characters and the continuation of the Penacony storyline. The 2.2 Special Program also showed some of the new areas like the Moment of Scorchsand and the Penacony Grand Theatre. A new boss fight was shown, during which players will face off against a large operatic automaton called “Harmonius Choir: The Great Septimus.” Finally, a new weapon form and path for the protagonist was teased, which features a hat as a “weapon” and will likely be attuned to the Path of Harmony.

Some of the events set to arrive after the update launches include the recurring Gift of Odyssey log in event, which grants up to 10 event warp tickets for use in the game’s gacha. Meanwhile, “Clockie: Dreamjoy Memoir” will offer Tracks of Destiny and Formless Resin as players try their hands at editing a Penaconian movie, and “Legend of the Galactic Baseballer” will be a combat event with RPG-like mechanics. “All About Boothill” will be a assignment-focused event exploring Boothill’s backstory, and there will also be a return of the Planar Fissure and Garden of Plenty events that provide extra rewards for farming Calyxes and the Simulated Universe.
