Honkai: Star Rail – Characters, story, beta, release date and everything you need to know

Following the thrilling success of Genshin Impact, gamers around the world are interested in another project from miHoYo. This time it is a science fiction adventure where players explore the cosmos and discover secrets surrounding many different characters. While the art style and animation look a lot like Genshin Impact, Honkai: Star Rail offers players some key gameplay differences that players can expect upon launch.

Honkai: The History of Star Rail

This science-fiction story begins in space when the Astral Express and its crew head to the Herta space station for delivery. However, the Voidrangers of the Antimatter Legion are attacking, so characters from both the Astral Express and the stations have to fight them. During the skirmish, new ties are formed and the characters decide to explore different worlds to get answers about the object known as Stellaron.

There are many comparisons between the miHoYo fantasy RPG Genshin Impact and the upcoming science fiction adventure Honkai: Star Rail. For example, both are single player free open world games with similar graphics and animation styles. Additionally, in both cases, characters choose to be male or female and can gather more characters into their team as they explore and complete missions. Even the main menus of the game look very similar to those of Genshin Impact.
