Honkai Star Rail Launches On April 26!


The wait is finally over, as HoYoverse finally revealed in its Honkai Star Rail boarding program that the game is coming on April 26!

While the boarding preparation program didn’t outright state it would reveal its release date, the Japanese Twitter for the game already revealed that we’d be getting its release date. If you haven’t been keeping up with the game, Star Rail also hit 5 million pre-registrations earlier this month, meaning everyone will pick up 20-star rail passes, and the 4-Star character Serval for free! The game will also begin pre-downloads a few days beforehand on April 23.

Since Honkai Star Rail’s release is still about a month away, players can still pre-register for the game through the official websiteGoogle Play, and App Store, and coming later to PlayStation.

Honkai Star Rail v1.0 Launch Events

In the latter half of the v1.0 launch, the Boulder Town Super League event will also begin, letting you earn free Stellar Jades and useful upgrade items!

During this event, you’ll be pitted against random enemies and challengers each with unique weaknesses. As you face off against them in multiple rounds the enemies will get increasingly more challenging, so it’s up to you to switch out your team members to counter the enemy’s composition!

About Honkai Star Rail

Honkai Star Rail is a spiritual successor and spin-off/sequel to Honkai Impact 3rd, taking place worlds apart from the world of Kiana and her friends, as Welt Yang embarks on a new adventure.

The galaxy is packed with worlds that have unique landscapes and stories; the Aeons roaming the universe uphold their own beliefs, among whom there is the Destruction, who regards the universe as a fallacy and civilization as cancer, casting seeds of a ruin called Stellarons across the galaxy.

The protagonist, who was implanted with a Stellaron, embarks on a trip aboard the Astral Express with a group of passengers who claim to have inherited the spirit of the Trailblaze, pursuing the trails of Aeons to explore the realms of the universe. 

Honkai: Star Rail also confirmed its availability via the Epic Games Store for official release concurrently with iOS, Android, and PC, in addition to the launching of the pre-registration campaign prior to the launch. The game’s cross-save and cross-play features will ensure synchronized gameplay progress across multi-platforms.

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
