What’s Honkai Star Rail?
If you haven’t heard of it, Honkai Star Rail is the latest gacha RPG by the makers of Honkai Impact, Genshin Impact, and, soon, Zenless Zone Zero.
It takes you aboard the Astral Express as you get to know a cast of colourful characters as you journey from world to world.
The combat swaps HoYoverse’s signature action-packed affair for a more methodical and strategic turn-based offering. That should appease old school RPG fans.
Other than that, it’s HoYoverse as you know and love it, with excellent writing, a huge cast of characters to collect, and gorgeous scenery to explore.
