Singapore, April 30, 2022 – Global interactive entertainment brand HoYoverse is excited to announce that Honkai: Star Rail, the latest addition to the Honkai franchise, will kick off a new closed beta round on PC, iOS, and Android. The forthcoming title introduces a standalone story from the Honkai Impact universe with brand-new characters and old friends, as well as a refined turn-based combat system that will appeal to both longtime fans and newcomers to the franchise. Closed beta registration is now available on the official site. The latest Honkai: Star Rail Closed Beta announcement trailer is also embedded below:
Honkai: Star Rail features a game world awaiting discovery with elements of myth and legend blended into the space sci-fi story. In this universe, there are the Aeons, incarnations of universal principles that are able to freely travel between infinite worlds using some kind of primitive force. The galaxy is packed with worlds that have unique landscapes and stories; the Aeons roaming the universe uphold their own beliefs, among them Destruction, who regards the universe as a fallacy and civilization as cancer, casting seeds of 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. The expedition progresses as the protagonist and the crew seek the ultimate answers to the journey’s purpose and unearth secrets buried in legends.
Honkai: Star Rail invites players to board the Astral Express and travel across unique worlds, each filled with different adventures and surprises. During the whirlwind trip of a star-chasing ride, players will meet new companions as well as faces familiar to series fans, resolving Stellaron-related conflicts, and eventually unraveling the mysteries concealed within. This role-playing game features a newcomer-friendly strategic turn-based combat system and large maps and mazes involving puzzle-solving and exploration, providing players with epic combat and a journey of discovery full of surprises and rewards.
The new closed beta sign-up is officially available today via the Honkai: Star Rail official website. For more information and updates, please visit the official site or follow @HonkaiStarRail on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
