Rather, this date is based on the current banner durations, which get rotated every 20 days. And when the next banner is released, which is Jing Yuan’s appearance, it should be the last banner before the release of Version 1.1.

But we will be sure to update you here once MiHoyo officially announces the next release date. 

Just like Version 1.0, there will be two phases to the banners. Much of the banners scheduled for Honkai’s very first major update have been confirmed, with their skill sets also locked in.

However, there is still one recruit, Yukong, which has been leaked and not confirmed just yet. Though it seems likely she will be making an appearance in Phase Two.

Here are all the leaked banners for Version 1.1:

Phase One: Loucha

  • Rarity: Five-star
  • Element: Imaginary 
  • Path: The Abundance

Phase Two: Silver Wolf

  • Rarity: Five-star
  • Element: Quantum 
  • Path: The Nihility 

Phase Two: YuKong (unconfirmed)

  • Rarity: Four-star
  • Element: Imaginary 
  • Path: The Harmony

These three are not the only three new characters to be announced, however. Since it is a gacha game, there will be a whole host of lower-star cast members added. But beyond those listed above, we’re yet to hear who else might be joining the massive lineup.

Honkai Star Rail Version 1.1: New Boss

Leaks have seemingly revealed what new bosses and enemies we might expect in future updates, however, none so far have had any properly concrete details. 

The first leaked boss is speculated to be a new weekly boss. Codenamed “Huan Long” it seems based on her design she will be able to cycle between elements. With three separate models seeing her in the colors of Wind, Lighting or Quantum, and Imaginary. 

However, because it is just a leak for now, there is no confirmation if she will make an appearance in Version 1.1, or even in later updates. But we will be sure to keep you posted here when we get closer to the update.

Honkai Star Rail Version 1.1: Leaked chat feature

An important feature in multiplayer games, which many players have likely already noticed upon trying out Honkai, is the lack of a chat function to talk with other Trailblazers. 

However, if leaks are to be believed, Version 1.1 will be implementing a chat feature with its release. 

According to Genshin leaker Team China, they claimed that Version 1.1 will bring a new chat feature. However, they are unsure if it will be global, just between friends, or both.
