Recent Honkai: Star Rail leaks have revealed new characters that will reportedly arrive in 2024, with one being Stephen Lloyd from the Genius Society. Honkai: Star Rail version 2.0 will feature plenty of characters from its newest nation, Penacony, a dreamlike planet with large explorable areas. Alongside the Penacony world, new enemies and bosses will also make it to the game in the next version.
Honkai: Star Rail will open up a new area in update 2.0, Penacony, which is home to plenty of characters and enemies. Referred to as the Land of Dreams, this region is a futuristic version of old French cities that were influenced by the Art Deco architecture style. Leaks pertaining to Penacony suggest it will introduce players to characters who are currently NPCs in the game. It’s also being said that some of these units will appear as story or weekly bosses. Unless HoYoverse changes its usual update schedule, Honkai: Star Rail‘s next update will arrive in February 2024.

Some Honkai: Star Rail leaks from Dimbreath and palito have revealed new characters, including Stephen Lloyd, Feixiao, and Jiaoqiu, that will be available in the future. Stephen Lloyd is a Genius Society member and one of the creators of the game’s endgame domain, Simulated Universe. Considering some other members of the Genius Society, such as Hertt and Screwlum, are already playable in Honkai: Star Rail, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if he receives his own banner. Feixiao, on the other hand, is from the Xianzhou Alliance, like the five-star Erudition character Jing Yuan.
According to leaks, Honkai: Star Rail players will meet another playable unit called Jiaoqiu, who was first mentioned by some reliable insiders a few months ago. It’s worth noting that this name could be a placeholder that HoYoverse will change until their release. Details regarding these upcoming units are scarce, but players can expect them to be mentioned in more leaks in the near future.
Once the version 2.0 update is released, Trailblazers will enjoy a variety of content in Honkai: Star Rail, including warp events that offer limited characters like Misha and Sparkle. Apart from relic sets and bosses, there will be enhancements for the Simulated Universe, which will allegedly make it easier to run the endgame domain and farm valuable items. Leaks pertaining to version 2.0 characters are already popping up online, with some claiming that Trailblazers will obtain a free four-star unit by completing the main event.
