MiHoYo Teases New Game In the Honkai Universe, Sing-ups Start On The 8th!
That was a fast turnaround! Ready to head back to the Honkai universe?
It looks like miHoYo is making good on that whole creating “a virtual world in which one billion people worldwide are willing to live” thing, or at least they’re doing the ground stages of building a massive empire. Either way, the company has somewhat revealed their next game. By that I mean, they’ve got a Twitter account with two tweets currently on it for the game and someone leaked a trailer.
The game, Honkai Star Rail, takes players back to the Honkai universe seen in miHoYo’s popular title Honkai Impact 3rd and it appears to be taking players into space aboard a train Galaxy Express 999-style. That’s pretty neat. Beyond that, we really don’t know much else about the game universe, plot, or mechanics. We can probably safely assume that it will be similar to its predecessors in that it features gacha mechanics.
The one other thing that we do know is that the first closed beta test is relatively soon. In fact, it’s soon enough that miHoYo is opening sign-ups on October 8th. So, you know. Tomorrow. Details on how to sign up aren’t available yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we know.

UPDATE: As promised, more information is now available on Honkai: Star Rail, including an official website, an English trailer, and, sign-ups for the closed beta. The website offers a bit of information on the game itself, primarily listing the games’ characters – of which there are currently seven. Two will likely seem familiar to Honkai Impact 3rd players, Himeko and Welt – likely as later incarnations.
Gameplay-wise, players are looking at a turn-based RPG with dungeons and the like. The site does not mention if there will be gacha mechanics, but we’re going to assume it likely will. As for the story, there’s a bit more on that in the trailer posted today.
And, of course, closed beta sign-ups are up and running. How long sign-ups will be available is up for question, as the FAQ says they’ll announce an end date at a later time. It is worth noting that this round of testing is available to players on iOS and PC and the required specs are also listed in the FAQ. Sorry Android users, no love this time.
