Honkai: Star Rail 2.1: A First Look at First Anniversary Rewards!

Highlights
Here are some of the datamined rewards for the first anniversary of Honkai: Star Rail.
We are getting a 4-star selector, a commemorative profile icon and other rewards.

Honkai: Star Rail's patch 2.1 beta is now live and we have a look at all of the content coming to the game. In addition to the new banners, quality-of-life changes and other updates, we have a look at the rewards we can expect from the upcoming update. Do note that this is just some of the cool new stuff you can expect from the update and is NOT indicative of the full anniversary rewards. The information is also based on the beta, so things are subject to change.

4-Star Selector Featuring 8 Post-Launch Units

Every 4-star character that released after the 1.0 update has been added to a special selector. The selector will be available via an event and you can choose between the following units:

  • Gallagher

  • Misha

  • Xueyi

  • Hanya

  • Guinaifen

  • Luka

  • Lynx

  • Yukong

Gallagher is a new unit and will be a great pickup for players who already have the other characters on this list from previous banners.

Other Rewards Are Yet to Be Confirmed

The free 10-pull is also inevitable at this point considering the developers have given us at least 10 Star Rail Passes every single patch. Other rewards are not available in the beta and will likely be announced during the anniversary (2.1) livestream in March.

We can expect a top-up reset bonus for paying players, which should come to the rescue of players looking to empty their life savings for Acheron or Aventurine.

There should also be a host of real-life events, a digital concert, web events, raffles and more. Dr. Ratio was announced as a surprise free 5-star a couple of patches ago and we also got 10 extra pulls for Penacony so surprise announcements are definitely not off the table.

Players are speculating that we will get a free 5-star selector but despite Hoyoverse's "generosity" in Honkai: Star Rail, we recommend tempering your expectations to avoid disappointment. That being said, everyone deserves a free Bronya so please make it happen, Hoyoverse!
