Honkai Star Rail Closed Beta Registrations are Open

Honkai Star Rail Beta

The final test is upon us. Signups for the final closed beta of Honkai Star Rail have opened. According to developer HoYoVerse, interested players can now register to join the test via the game’s official site. Signups will be open from January 24, 2023 through February 2, 2023. The final closed beta test itself will begin on February 10, 2023, and will cover PC, iOS, and Android platforms. Access to the test is limited, and free of charge. However, save and progress data generated during the test will be wiped when it’s over, so there will be no carryover from this test to the official release.

To sign up for the Honkai Star Rail final closed beta test, players will need to visit the official website and log in to their HoYoVerse accounts (or sign up for one if they haven’t yet). Then they’ll need to click the “Enter Sign-Up” button to fill in the registration survey. Those who qualify for beta access will be notified via their registered email and text message (if they registered a mobile number). Check out this page for more information, including recommended system and device specifications.

Participants in the test will receive an Avatar Frame for their HoYoLab account. Pre-registration for the final release is also open on the site, with escalating rewards based on the total number of pre-registrations received.

HoYoVerse also uploaded a Honkai Star Rail beta trailer to commemorate the occasion.

Titled “Space Comedy,” the Honkai Star Rail closed beta trailer shows off a number of the game’s characters and locations. Characters sighted in the trailer include:

  • Balu
  • Blade
  • Fu Xuan
  • Gepard
  • Herta
  • Jing Yuan
  • Kafka
  • Luo Cha
  • Qing Que
  • Serval
  • Silver Wolf
  • Su Shang
  • Ting Yun

They join the trio of Dan Heng, March 7th, and the Trailblazer (whose gender presentation can be selected by the player).

Honkai Star Rail is in development for release on PC and mobile devices.
