Honkai Star Rail patch 1.2 is less than a month away from release and players are eagerly waiting for Kafka, who is possibly the most anticipated character in the game. She will launch alongside Blade and Luka and fans can also expect events, story updates and other content to be added to the game. Here is a Honkai Star Rail Patch 1.2 Release Countdown in case you are wondering exactly when the patch drops.

There will be maintenance for five hours before the patch drops so you will not be able to play the game for a short while. After the maintenance ends, you will receive compensation for downtime depending on the number of hours the servers are unavailable. 

Usually, the servers are back online before the official release times so you can hop in early and experience all of the new content before the designated time. If maintenance is extended, you will receive a notification in-game and Hoyoverse will offer additional compensation.
