▍Honkai Star Rail Worldview
Taking place several years after Honkai Impact 3rd, Welt Yang travels to a parallel universe, leaving his old one behind to embark on a new journey.
In this new universe, humans live on several planets, each with its own ecosystem, culture, and way of life, with most of them unaware of life on other planets. One day, a group of unknown alien invaders called the Antimatter legion, invade the Herta Space Station, attacking people indiscriminately.
Amidst the chaos, Kafka, and Silver Wolf, two wanted fugitives and part of the Stellaron Hunters, sneak into the space station during chaos to revive an artificial human known as the Trailblazer, your player character. As you awake, Kafka tells you of the world and the long journey you have ahead of you, and that someday will meet again.
What follows is a journey spanning multiple worlds, and several characters, in an effort to find the Stellarons, and uncover the trailblazer’s past, while solving the issues of the other worlds they come across.
▍Honkai Star Rail Gameplay
Honkai Star Rail is a turn-based RPG, with you controlling a party of four. Characters take turns based on turn order, which can be adjusted based on a character’s current stats, and the status of the enemies.
Enemies and characters in the game are all tied to an element. If you attack an enemy with their elemental weakness, you can cause a “break” status effect, dealing additional damage while also applying a debuff. Learn the ins and outs of your characters, and plan ahead of your opponent to dismantle the enemy, turn by turn.
