The creators of Genshin Impact have announced a release date for their upcoming sci-fi RPG, but PS5 players will have to wait.
What kind of game is this? Honkai: Star Rail (PC, PlayStation, Mobile) is a free-to-play sci-fi RPG from the Chinese developer studio HoYoverse, best known for the successful gacha game Genshin Impact.
Honkai: Star Rail mixes science fiction with an anime style and sends you into space. You travel through the galaxy on a train, exploring different worlds and trying to resolve conflicts. You will encounter numerous puzzles and labyrinths that you have to solve.
In addition, Honkai: Star Rail relies on a turn-based combat system and various unlockable characters.
