When is Acheron coming to Honkai Star Rail? That’s what many fans are asking in heightened anticipation.

Honkai Star Rail 2.0 brought the trailblazers to the lavishing dream-esque land of Penacony and introduced a wide array of characters, such as the endearing Firefly, the alluring Black Swan, and most notably, the mysterious Acheron. 

The galaxy ranger had a fleeting presence in Star Rail 2.0’s story, but her role in the game’s overarching narrative is just beginning. Most importantly, Acheron’s 5-star banner is on the horizon, and if you’re wondering when you can pull for her, you’re in the right place.

So when is Acheron coming out? While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, the Honkai Star Rail Acheron banner will reportedly be part of the Honkai Star Rail 2.1 update. As of this writing, miHoYo hasn’t revealed when the 2.1 update will come out, but it’s likely to arrive in the final week of March, more precisely on March 27, 2024. 

In the meantime, you can look forward to phase 2 of Star Rail 2.0, which will introduce (and reintroduce) the 5-star banners of Sparkle and Jing Yuan, as well as the 4-star banners of Hanya, Sampo, and Qingue.

If you didn’t know, Acheron is a 5-star character of Nihilty Path and can inflict Lightning damage. She is voiced by Allegra Clark (English), who recently also portrayed Mitsuru Kirijo in Persona 3 Reload, and Miyuki Sawashiro (Japanese), who you may remember as the enigmatic Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact.

Acheron banner will likely last for three weeks in Honkai Star Rail, similar to other character and light cone banners in the game. It means you will have three weeks to try your luck and pull Acheron. Even if you fail to get her the first time, fret not. The Honkai Star Rail Acheron banner will probably return again before the end of the year.
