Honkai: Star Rail Release Date Falls in April, Heading to PlayStation

Honkai: Star Rail Release Date Falls in April PlayStation

During the first Honkai: Star Rail Special Program, HoYoVerse revealed the release date. As many expected, it is coming soon. People will be able to start playing through the turn-based RPG on April 26, 2023. Pre-installation starts April 23, 2023. There will also be a PlayStation version of Honkai: Star Rail, though it wasn’t specified it will be for both the PS4 and PS5. It’s in development, and there’s no release date for it yet.

We already had some idea this news would be coming. There had been rumors of an April 2023 release window ahead of this presentation. Not to mention HoYoVerse also recently held a final closed beta for people. Pre-registrations for the game also opened up in February 2023.

Due to said pre-registrations hitting all goals, new players will get a number of rewards when they start. As 5,000,000 people pre-registered and 2,500,000 followed the game on social media, people get a number of items like free currency and a character. The free character is Serval, a four-star Lightning-element unit. Newcomers will also get 100,000 Credits to spend on items and 20 Star Rail Passes to use to pull for characters in the game’s gacha. There is also a free avatar cosmetic. Players’ profiles can equip a Avatar Trailblazer – Welcome icon.

The Honkai: Star Rail PC and mobile release date is April 26, 2023, and it will also come to PlayStation consoles like the PS4 and PS5. People who missed the Special Program can catch up with it later on the official YouTube account.
