Ahead of his official playable debut, HoYoVerse uploaded a new character trailer and biography for Jing Yuan from Honkai Star Rail. He is one of the Charioteers on the Xianzhou Luofu and appeared occasionally in the story so far. As a playable character, he will be a 5-star Lightning unit.

Unlike Genshin Impact, the character teaser posts on HoYoLab do not give much information on the character’s kit. More information about Jing Yuan might appear closer to the release of the new Honkai Star Rail banner though. Instead, his character update focuses more on Jing Yuan as a character. It looks like an interview, in which he answers questions. For example, one of the questions is regarding his age, but Jing Yuan spouts off a lot of fanciful trivia about the Xianzhou residents and does not actually answer the question. March 7th points out this last part as well.

There is also a character trailer for Jing Yuan. Yanqing makes an appearance in it as well. It shows off both Jing Yuan’s military strength, as well as his intelligence. You can watch the Jing Yuan trailer (as well as an animated short featuring him) via the Honkai Star Rail YouTube channels:

Honkai Star Rail is available on mobile devices and Windows PC. PS4 and PS5 versions will come out as well. Jing Yuan will appear in the gacha on May 17, 2023.
