Summer Game Fest Delivers Stellar New Cinematic Trailer for Honkai Star Rail

Summer Game Fest Lights Up the Stars Behind Honkai Star Rail’s Vivid New Realm

Between Zenless Zone Zero and Honkai Star Rail, HoYoverse has been pretty damn busy lately, cranking out trailers left and right. The Summer Game Fest brings us a grandiose cinematic trailer for Honkai Star Rail, showing off an exotic new realm the party will be checking out. If you haven’t gotten the chance to sign up for the betas before, you absolutely should keep an eye out for this one. The character designs are bringing whole new levels of cool this time around.

Honkai Star Rail takes the HoYoverse games to space in a galactic train destined for a multitude of different regions. The game will be free to play, with the genre set to be a tactical, turn-based RPG, unlike any of its predecessors. That said, those curious if this is a direct sequel to Honkai Impact 3rd will find the answer a bit strange. Characters from Star Rail will have similar names and even appearances to Honkai Impact 3rd characters, but with vastly different backstories. Those familiar with the details of Honkai Impact 3rd will know what’s going on there, while those not too familiar won’t be left out either and will have plenty of new things to experience. There are a lot of similarities in level-up materials, character designs, and even some environments that fans of HoYovers’s work will see recognize, but until the game launches, we’ll have to be content with the vivid drip-feeding for now of what to expect from this epic new adventure.

Check out the stunning trailer below, and if you’re eager for more HoYoverse magnificence, go check out our piece on the more urban-industrial game they have lined up called Zenless Zone Zero.

As always, stay tuned for more of the latest Honkai Star Rail news and trailers!
