Upcoming Honkai: Star Rail characters you will be able to play as

A gaze into the future of Honkai: Star Rail
HoYoverse

All upcoming Honkai: Star Rail characters are creating excitement around them, no matter how much or little is known about them. HoYoverse’s popular RPG is following the same strict patch cycle as its flagship title Genshin Impact, which means that new updates are launched every six weeks. Most of these brand-new game versions have between two and three additional playable characters in store – usually two 5-Stars and one 4-Star, though that cadence will slow down as the game gets older.

While secure information is only available for the next version of the game, the rumor mill around the HoYoverse games is always strong – and often quite reliable. There are always beta tests going on in China for upcoming versions of the studio’s games, which makes for a steady stream of new information flowing into the West. Some of these things may have been misinterpreted due to the language barrier and all of it should be taken with a grain of salt as any information from a beta version (or earlier) is not final by any means, so please keep that in mind.

If you still want to risk a gaze into the potential future and check out the upcoming Honkai: Star Rail characters that will be available to pull from the game’s banners, you’re in the right place – we’ve collected all the available information here.
