Honkai Star Rail 1.2 release date
The Honkai Star Rail 1.2 release date is expected on Wednesday, July 18, 2023. MiHoYo has yet to officially confirm the date, but it aligns with the end of the current banner and also fits in with MiHoYo's six-week update cycle.
Honkai Star Rail 1.2 update banners
MiHoyo have confirmed the two banners for version 1.2 of Honkai Star Rail. As expected Blade and Kafka will be the focus of the banners, with a drop-rate boost during their banner's duration.
In the first phase, 5-star Wind character Blade will have an increased drop-rate.

New Lightcones in Honkai Star Rail 1.2 update
There will be two new 5-Star Light Cones dropping in the 1.2 update. However, MiHoYo did not confirm yet more details on their buffs.
New areas in Honkai Star Rail 1.2 update
The Alchemy commission
The Alchemy Commission is where Xianzhou makes their medicines, not much else was revealed about the area.
The second new area Scalegorge Waterscape based on the trailer seems to be the location for the finale of the the Xianzhou Loufu storyline. It also seems a lot larger in scale, making it seem like the Alchemy Comission might be a pit stop to set the stage for an epic showdown with Fantilia.
Fantilia the Undying
In the Even Immortality Ends special program, Fantilia the Undying was revealed as an antagonist for version 1.2. Fantilia is a brand new character and the combat footage looks like it could match the epic scale of the Jarilo-VI boss. However, twists are never too far away.
