HoYoverse launched Honkai Star Rail with 27 characters. While that’s three more than what launched with Genshin Impact, we know there are more on the way. Some were made available to players in beta tests, while others have appeared here and there through various means. Still, there are those simply mentioned in the game but not yet available. Here’s what we know about all of the upcoming Honkai Star Rail characters.

Confirmed Upcoming Characters

Dan Heng Imbibitor Lunae

Dan Heng is getting another version as the bearer of Azure Dragon’s legacy. While only teased during the Even Immortality Ends trailer, he’s set to be released in the 1.3 update, Celestial Eyes Above Mortal Ruins.

Topaz and Numby

Topaz is a member of the Interastral Peace Corporation as leader of the Special Debts Picket Team. You’ll find her with her trusty warp trotter companion Numby. They haven’t been given a warp event yet, so we’ll need to wait before we can play this dynamic duo.

Leaked Honkai Star Rail Characters

While these HSR characters have not been confirmed as playable, their leaked models have us suspecting they may be. Along with those leaked models, unannounced stats, and images from closed beta mean they could go live at some point. However, it’s very important to not that these have not been confirmed by HoYoverse.

Screwllum

Screwllum, the genius associate of Herta who works to make the Simulated Universe fun, has had his path and element recently leaked. Adding more to the assumption that he’ll be a playable character available soon.

  • Rarity: 4-Star
  • Element: Imaginary
  • Path: Erudition

Black Swan

With the recent release of the Myriad Celestia trailer by HoYoverse, the likelihood of a Black Swan character confirmation seems like it’s in the cards.

Hanabi

  • Rarity: 5-Star
  • Element: Quantum
  • Path: Harmony

Xueyi

Leaks show Xueyi being involved with new events and quests in Honkai Star Rail.

Unconfirmed Characters

The following Honkai Star Rail characters have some information about them circulating — maybe an image or two — but no other information is really known about them or when they may end up as playable characters. None of this has come from HoYoverse and is pure speculation, so various parts of a character’s kit may change before they’re finally released.

Those are all the upcoming Honkai Star Rail characters, confirmed or unconfirmed. There’s a wide variety of elements and paths, and most seem to 4-stars and 5-stars. There are sure to be some coveted pulls in the group. However, it’s worth reminding that many of these characters aren’t confirmed, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
