Honkai: Star Rail, the new free-to-play turn-based RPG from HoYoverse, creators of the popular Genshin Impact, is set to arrive on PlayStation 5 in the fourth quarter of 2023. The exact date is yet to be announced.
The game is already available on PCs via the Epic Games Store and on smartphones running iOS and Android. The PlayStation 5 release will allow Sony console players to join in on the fun.
In Honkai: Star Rail, players embark on an exciting journey aboard the Astral Express, discovering the infinite wonders of the galaxy. You’ll meet new companions across various worlds and even encounter familiar faces. Together, you’ll need to solve the problems caused by the Stellarion and uncover the secrets it hides.
Is Honkai: Star Rail Worth Playing?
Honkai: Star Rail has been praised for its solid base, which largely overshadows its cons. While it may not be as ‘revolutionary’ or ambitious as its predecessor, Genshin Impact, its combat system, initial exploration of this expanding universe, characters, and audiovisual production values similar to a full-priced release make it a promising game. The future prospects of the game, considering this is just the tip of the iceberg, suggest that HoYoverse is set to confirm its place as one of the major Asian developers, especially for games as services that work wonderfully on mobiles and home platforms.
