Genshin Impact’s next game is set to be out on April 26. The Sci-fi RPG Honkai: Star Rail is set to make its way to both mobile and PC platforms this new week, with a version for the PlayStation also reportedly in the works.
Genshin Impact’s Next Game
The studio that is behind the massively famous online fantasy RPG Genshin Impact is now back this very week with its next game. The game which is called Honkai: Star Rail looks very much similar to Genshin but however with many more of a sci-fi twist to it. This simply means slick anime visuals, bigger worlds to explore, and also a never-ending list of things to be done, all thanks to its live-service nature.
The Premise of the Game
“Implanted with a Stellaron, the protagonist bravely set sail for the galaxy to drill down to the truth surrounding the so-called Cancer of All Worlds. Players will be able to experience a vast universe abundant in distinctive cultures, landscapes, and scenery. From Herta Space Station where the story starts and you receive the prerequisite knowledge for the forthcoming journey, to Jarilo-VI where numerous dangers and conflicts are frozen beneath the snow, to the eastern-fantasy-infused silkpunk flagship Xianzhou Luofu where the topic of immortality is the cause of both development and strife.”
It sounds really intense and at least looks very impressive in trailers in regards to its visuals. And most importantly, the game involves players riding around on the titular space train just to get around the universe, which is something I know many players have wanted to do since they were kids. and in addition to the new setting, Honkai also switches things up from Genshin with more focus on turn-based combat.
Availability and Cost
Honkai as you should know is similarly free to play and it will also be available on PC, iOS, and Android when it gets to launch on April 26th. In fact, you can even preinstall it now on one of those platforms ahead of the servers being live in the latter parts of the week. The game is also coming to PlayStation, but there is however no word yet on when it will get to launch.
Other Works from the Studio
This will be the first new release of the studio since Genshin made its debut back in 2020, although there’s more in the works as well with the post-apocalyptic action RPG Zenless Zone Zero, which at the moment doesn’t have a release date to its name.
