The current Honkai Star Rail banners feature the new five-star imaginary Preservation character, Aventurine, alongisde a re-run of the popular five-star ice destruction character, Jingliu. These banners run from Wednesday, April 17 until Tuesday, May 7, 2024.

Alongside the limited character banner, there’s also the Light Cone Event Warp. Here are all of the light cones featured on the current Honkai Star Rail light cone banners.

What’s the next Honkai Star Rail banner?

Hoyoverse is yet to confirm the Honkai Star Rail 2.2 banners, but drip marketing suggests that they will feature two new five-star characters, Honkai Star Rail’s Robin and Honkai Star Rail’s Boothill.

Robin is a physical damage dealer who treads the path of Harmony, suggesting that her kit will predominantly focus on buffing her allies. You may remember her from the Trailblaze Mission, The Sound and the Fury, in which we learn that she’s both Sunday’s sister and one of the most renowned singers across the universe.

On the other hand we have Boothill, another physical damage dealer. However, unlike Robin, he treads the path of the Hunt, meaning his kit should place far more focus on dishing out heaps of damage. We don’t know too much about him yet, other than the fact that he’s an optimistic and unrestrained cyborg cowboy (okay, we’re already sold), and that he’s a member of the Galaxy Rangers – a group that punishes ‘the wretched’ by any means necessary.

Both Robin and Boothill sound like a blast, and we can’t wait to meet them – so you can count on us updating this guide when we find out more about them in the HSR livestream on Friday, 26 April. In the meantime, keep an eye on our Honkai Star Rail update guide to learn all about the latest announcements, streams, and more.
