All aboard the hype train, Astral Express is about to explore the new chapter in the story of Penacony. Honkai: Star Rail Version 2.2 launches on May 8th. Trailblazers who have completed the previous adventures will be able to embark on a new Trailblaze Mission “The Fool Always Rings Twice”. The Charmony Festival is in its countdown phase, and all the involved parties are waiting with the bated breath.

In order to get started as soon as possible, you might want to take advantage of the update pre-download, available now on PC and mobile devices. The pre-download will allow you to get some of the game resources in advance and noticeably speed up how soon you can start this new journey after the maintenance.
