Honkai Star Rail Banner Schedule: New Characters, Release Dates, & More

Honkai: Star Rail is the newest RPG developed by Genshin Impact studio HoYoverse. The game will take players on a turn-based journey through the stars as they become a passenger on the interplanetary Astral Express. There is a ton of characters in this game for players to acquire and add to their team. However, for some of the most powerful and limited characters, players will have to spend their precious summoning currency to pull for them on summoning banners. 

Knowing the banner schedule for any gacha game is vital. This way, players can effectively plan ahead and save or spend their resources accordingly. The alternative is being caught short with no summoning currency right when a powerful character is released. 

So, if you are interested in learning more about the Honkai: Star Rail banner schedule, look no further. This article will cover everything you need to know about the Honkai: Star Rail banner schedule, including upcoming characters, release dates, and more!

At the time of writing this, it is unknown whether HoYoverse will follow a concurrent pattern for updating their banners. In the closed beta, each limited character had a rate-up period of three weeks. If HoYoverse follows this pattern, players can expect the Honkai: Star Rail banner to change every three weeks
