Honkai Star Rail 2.0 Release Date, Characters

Honkai Star Rail 2.0 will be a significant and major update for the new year of 2024. According to the developers, there are no versions 1.7-1.9. It means that HoYoverse has already planned to skip three versions after 1.6. They will directly roll out HSR 2.0 with new features and improvements. Their latest drip marketing has already confirmed upcoming characters.

Here, we’ve prepared all character and other 2.0-related leaks, so you can save your Stellar Jades for the right character.

Honkai Star Rail 2.0 Release Date

The HSR 2.0 update will be released on February 6, 2024 instead of February 7. This time, the normal schedule for 2.0 has been changed. So, it will be released on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. Before releasing the update, HoYoverse will release maintenance break on 6:00 UTC+8. Within 5 hours, the maintenance will end and Trailblazers like you will be able to access the game with version 2.0 on 11:00 UTC+8 and start exploring new characters and other contents.

As we know, HoYoverse releases a special program few days ago from the release of new update. So, in terms of this update, Honkai Star Rail’s 2.0 livestream will be released on January 26, 2024 at 19:30 (UTC+8).

These are the expected release dates based on my analysis on miHoYo’s release pattern.

As mentioned earlier, drip marketing has revealed new characters. The HSR 2.0 update’s drip marketing confirms the release of 3 new characters.

1. Black Swan

Black Swan

Character Name Black Swan
Rarity 5-stars
Element Wind
Path The Nihility
Faction Garden of Recollection
EN Voice Actor Arryn Zech

2. Sparkle


Character Name Sparkle
Rarity 5-stars
Element Quantum
Path The Harmony
Faction Masked Fools
EN Voice Actor Lizzie Freeman

Looking for Hanabi? Sparkle is the updated and new name of previously leaked name Hanabi.

3. Misha


Character Name Misha
Rarity 4-stars
Element Ice
Path The Destruction
EN Voice Actor Cat Protano

As HoYoverse reveled these characters one by one, we can expect that phase 1 banner will include Black Swan. In phase 2 banner, we will see Sparkle and Misha.

Author’s opinion: Have you seen Misha as a female character? If so, me too. The name Misha and the look of the character seem female, but HoYoverse mentioned Misha in drip marketing as ‘He,’ so yes, we can now consider Misha a male character.
