HoYoverse has announced the next Honkai: Star Rail special program, a livestream that will spill all the juicy details on the upcoming update 2.1, titled "Into the Yawning Chasm", for the anime RPG. Aside from continuing what’s the title’s most gripping story arc yet and introducing new playable characters, version 2.1 will play host to Honkai: Star Rail’s first anniversary – which should bring players a couple of freebies.

Naturally, this next livestream will most likely be hosted by the developers themselves, as is the tradition for anniversary broadcasts. The absence of chibi characters from the stream’s reveal poster would support that as well.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Honkai: Star Rail 2.1 livestream start times and where to watch.

Honkai: Star Rail 2.1 livestream: what to expect

We’ll have another trio of brand-new characters to pull for in Honkai: Star Rail 2.1 – Acheron, Aventurine, and Gallagher will join the fray. We’ve met all three of them on Penacony already, though it’s safe to say that each still has many secrets to uncover.

Speaking of mysteries: We’re still reeling from pretty much everything that happened in the Honkai: Star Rail 2.0 Trailblaze Mission and can’t wait to find out how 2.1 is going to continue this thrilling story. Will the dead remain dead? Who is betraying whom this time? Are there players yet to be revealed on the Planet of Festivities? We’ll find out soon enough.

Finally, Honkai: Star Rail promo codes will be dropped during the show and enable you to stock up on additional Stellas Jade. You’re going to need them.
