The Honkai universe keeps expanding, and we cannot be more excited about it! This time, our Game of the Week follows 2016's Honkai Impact 3rd, and therefore, we can only expect the best anime designs, an amazing story, and, of course, LOTS OF ACTION! Ready for Honkai: Star Rail?
Although some of the already-known characters make a comeback on this amazing RPG from miHoYo (the studio behind Genshin Impact as well), Honkai: Star Rail is based on its own standalone story with new characters. The story begins on the Astral Express, and the ultimate goal is to find Aeons: mysterious entities that can travel between infinite worlds. Our protagonist, The Trailblazer, is set to travel through these worlds and uncover the mysteries, and the new characters will be joining you on the Astral Express as you progress through the game.
The gameplay in Honkai: Star Rail is a turn-based fighting system that reminds quite a lot of Genshin Impact. Up to four characters can be used in each battle, and each can have their class and special abilities. Combining them to create the dream team will be a cornerstone to success, so make sure you take into account their advantages and disadvantages, as well as knowing your opponent's weaknesses. Although most RPG players are here for the battling, in Honkai: Star Rail you'll also find many cutscenes that make the story much more engaging and interesting. Make sure you pay attention!
Because of all this and the amazing designs we tend to see on Honkai titles, we recommend you download it now to join a whole universe of fun!
