After three days of teasing reveals, we finally have a complete overview of the Honkai: Star Rail 1.2 banners: Kafka, Blade, and Luka will be the new playable characters joining the RPG from July to August.

After separate reveals for Blade and Kafka, two highly anticipated 5-Star characters, HoYoverse revealed the identity of version 1.2’s new 4-Star character, Luka, on Chinese social media site Weibo.

Luka is another follower of the Path of Nihility, which Kafka belongs to as well, but deals Physical Damage. He is a member of Wildfire, the organization from Belobog’s Underworld. He’s a boxer with a mechanical arm, who is always ready to leave the ring for a real battlefield to protect his fellow citizens. His nature is said to be bright and optimistic at all times. Before you say that this clashes with his Nihility affiliation, optimistic nihilism is a philosophy that exists.

Update 1.2 for Honkai: Star Rail, should start on July 19, 2023, and run until the end of August. If the release order of social media teasers is an indicator for the order of 1.2’s banners, Blade is going to be available during the first three weeks and Kafka during the second half.

First, however, update 1.1 for Honkai: Star Rail will bring Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong into the game. A livestream scheduled to air on May 26, 2023, will provide additional details on the upcoming patch.
