HoYoVerse announced yet another promotional game campaign is underway. It is holding Honkai: Star Rail The Astral Express Global Tour events worldwide. In pretty much every case, just showing up at the real world location and waiting your turn is all that’s needed to take part. People then might find things like photo ops or contests. Some of the ads are already running in locations. However, in many cases the “offline special events” start at or just after the game’s launch on April 26, 2023.
Here is the full list of all of the Honkai: Star Rail The Astral Express Global Tour event locations, dates, and activities. Note that in many cases, there will just be advertisements to see and not actual events to participate in.

Some of the events are coming, but not defined yet. For example, multiple Japanese cities will hold a Cosmo Walker event. There will also apparently be one in Shangai as well. HoYoVerse hasn’t offered locations, dates, or details for those yet.
This is one of many real-world and virtual activities. For example, there’s one tie-in involving Kinokuniya stores in the US. There’s also a countdown event on Twitter.
Honkai: Star Rail will come to the PC and mobile devices on April 26, 2023. It will also eventually appear on PlayStation consoles.
