In addition to this lineup of permanent content, double drop periods and login events, we're getting three limited-time events during the 2.2 update to Honkai Star Rail. Here's a quick summary of these time-limited events in Honkai Star Rail 2.2:

Clockie: Dreamjoy Memoir

Clockie: Dreamjoy Memoir starts Wednesday 8th May - the day of the 2.2 update - and ends Monday 17th June, and you need to complete the 'Penacony - And on the Eighth Day' Trailblazer Mission to take part. However, the event will be added to the Conventional Memoir event page when it ends, meaning you can play it from here if you miss its initial running dates, you just won't get the limited-time rewards like the Light Cone and Self Modeling Resin.

Clock Studios needs an amazing new director and editor to help them out of a tight spot, and it just so happens they know a Nameless with the willingness to do anything for Stellar Jade.

In Dreamjoy Memoir, you have to pick different 'Time Dice' to alter the emotions of movie and commercial scenes to achieve the key objective for each production. You even unlock some bonus stories of side characters if you do well enough, and can alter the ending of their tales.

For achieving certain milestones, you get the new 4-Star Harmony path Light Cone, For Tomorrow's Journey, and it's superimposition materials. There's also a new chatbox background to unlock along with the usual Stellar Jade, Self Modeling Resin, and Tracks of Destiny rewards.

All About Boothill starts Friday 17th May and ends on Monday 3rd June, and you need to at least Trailblazer Level 21 to take part in the event.

All About Boothill is an assignment event where you select characters to go on assignments and earn rewards. Even though it's just selecting characters and waiting, you get to learn more about Boothill's galactic antics by doing so.
