Genshin Impact developers, HoYoverse, are taking advantage of the popularity of their hit game by launching a new title, Honkai: Star Rail. The game has been in promotion for a while now, and the developers have announced that it will be released on April 26, 2023. However, the release date is exclusive for PC and mobile platforms only, while the dates for PS4 and PS5 are still unknown.
According to a report from Wccftech, HoYoverse announced Honkai: Star Rail to be a turn-based tactical fantasy role-playing game (RPG). The game comes with a traditional RPG format, featuring semi-strategic turn-based battles, unlike Genshin Impact, which has a Zelda-like exploration and action format.
Like previous HoYoverse titles, Honkai: Star Rail is a free-to-play game with a gacha loot box system to unlock characters and weapons. The game will be led by Stellaron, a protagonist who bravely sails across the galaxy to uncover the truth behind what is known as the Cancer of All Worlds. Players will experience a vast universe abundant in different cultures, landscapes, and views.
The story of Honkai: Star Rail begins at the Outer Space Station Herta, where players receive prerequisite knowledge for the upcoming journey to Jarilo-VI. There is also a destination to the Silkpunk Flagship, which is filled with eastern fantasy Xianzhou Luofu, where immortality is the cause of development and conflict. Players will also encounter new companions from different worlds and familiar faces. Together with them, the players will solve problems caused by Stellaron and uncover the mysteries behind them.
In conclusion, Honkai: Star Rail is a new RPG fantasy game by the developers of the popular Genshin Impact game. With its traditional turn-based RPG format and a vast universe full of different cultures, landscapes, and views, the game promises to bring a unique and exciting gaming experience. The game will be available on PC and mobile platforms on April 26, 2023, while the release dates for PS4 and PS5 are still unknown.
