Honkai Star Rail Change Avatar

Can You Change Your Player Avatar in Honkai: Star Rail?

Honkai: Star Rail features a player character that you will control throughout your time in the game, with a selectable avatar being made available at the tail end of the prologue mission. Players will have the option to pick one of two player avatars as their Trailblazer in Honkai: Star Rail, but you won’t be able to change it once you’ve made your decision. Both options are purely cosmetic and have no impact on the gameplay.

There are male and female player character avatars in Honkai: Star Rail, and before finalizing your selection the game will warn you that you can not change to the other Trailblazer option once you’ve made your decision. Again, this has little bearing on the gameplay, and will just impact the avatar of the player character. That said, if you’re not at all interested in running around as the player character, you can swap between any character in your party and wander around as them instead.

Honkai: Star Rail will come to the PC and mobile devices on April 26, 2023. It will also eventually appear on the PS4 and PS5. A special Twitch drop campaign for the game will run from April 26, 2023 to March 24, 2023. Players can obtain in-game currency and level-up materials by watching participating streams on Twitch.
