When is Honkai Star Rail First Anniversary?

The anticipation is building! This article features a countdown specifically set for 9 pm ET on April 26th, which aligns with typical Honkai update times. However, Hoyoverse often rolls out updates based on player time zones. So, expect daily anniversary rewards to arrive at 4 am in your local time zone.

In addition to these free pulls, you can also collect a total of 1,600 Stellar Jades, bringing your grand total to a whopping 30 free pulls for the upcoming limited-time banners!

Bonus Perks and Potential Surprises

While not technically a reward, the first-time purchase bonus on Stellar Jade packs will also be reset during the anniversary week. This is a great chance to stock up on resources for the exciting new banners in version 2.2.

Taking inspiration from Genshin Impact’s anniversary celebrations, we might see even more surprises throughout the week. Genshin’s birthday events included additional in-game activities and surprise rewards alongside free pulls. While Honkai’s systems might differ, there’s a high chance we’ll see some exclusive cosmetic items or other goodies up for grabs.

So, buckle up, Trailblazers! The Astral Express is pulling into the anniversary station, and it’s loaded with free pulls, bonuses, and potentially some exciting surprises. Prepare to celebrate Honkai: Star Rail‘s first year in style!
