Honkai Star Rail, Latest Title from HoYoverse, Enters Full Release

26 Apr 2023

From the creators of Genshin Impact comes Honkai Star Rail, a turn-based, free-to-play, 3D role-playing game. You control a team of four characters, and improve your characters through turn-based combat in open world / dungeon exploration settings. Alternatively, you can also improve your team through a “gacha” system like its predecessor.

For those of you familiar with Genshin Impact, the same vibrant and anime based art style is present throughout this game. Honkai Star Rail is centered around turn-based combat, with elements, class (path), various attack options including basic attacks, techniques, skills, ultimates, weapons (light cones), armor (relics), traces (skill trees), and eidolons (character enhancements through character copies).

Once you step into the game, you will be checking into Herta Space Station, and exploring various settings and a variety of enemies, with a plethora of options to approach each combat instance. Earn and combine characters, weapons, and armors through in-game rewards or through micro-transactions to build a unique squad to tackle combat.

Honkai Star Rail had seen over 10-million pre-registered users before its launch, which is perhaps not surprising with its free-to-play model, Genshin Impact’s popularity and huge financial success, and the similarity between the two titles. The game is now in full release on PC and mobile devices.
