HoYoverse (aka miHoYo) has announced that Honkai: Star Rail will kick off a new closed beta, and sign-ups are now available.
Specifically, the upcoming closed beta will be available on PC, iOS, and Android, and it will let players try out the next upcoming addition to the Honkai series.
Star Rail was originally announced back in October after the Honkai Impact 3rd Starfire Sonorant Special Concert. In case you missed its announcement, the game will feature brand-new characters, along with a refined turn-based combat system that promises to appeal to both old Honkai fans and newcomers alike.
The game is described by HoYoverse as:
“Honkai: Star Rail features a game world awaiting discovery with elements of myths and legends 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 whom there is the [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.”
Sign-ups for the upcoming Honkai: Star Rail closed beta are now available on the official site.
