Version 1.2 of Honkai: Star Rail will go live soon, adding new playable characters, a continuation of the main story, and time-limited events to the RPG. Naturally, the fresh faces are always one of the big highlights of an update. As usual, you will be able to pull for these characters from their banners, two of which are going to be included in this patch. Update 1.2 has some especially highly anticipated additions in store.

Each of these two banners features one 5-Star character and three 4-Star characters with boosted drop rates. Alongside these character banners run two Light Cone banners with one 5-Star Light Cone and three 4-Star Light Cones, which usually are very good options for the characters being available at the time. All of them run for three weeks.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Honkai: Star Rail 1.2 character and Light Cone banners.
