HoYoverse announces that Honkai: Star Rail closed beta is now available for sign-up on PC, iOS, and Android. The new title will introduce a standalone story with brand new characters and old ones, as well as a refined turn-based combat system.
Honkai: Star Rail features a world with elements of myth and legends blended into the space sci-fi story. In this universe, there are the Aeons, incarnations of universal principles that are able to freely travel between infinite worlds using some kind of primitive force. The galaxy is packed with worlds that have unique landscapes and stories; the Aeons roaming the universe uphold their own beliefs, among whom there is the [Destruction], who regards the universe as a fallacy and civilization as cancer, casting seeds of ruin called Stellarons across the galaxy.
Players will assume the role of the protagonist, who's implanted with a Stellaron, boarding the Astral Express with a group of passengers who claim to have inherited the spirit of the Trailblaze, pursuing the trails of Aeons. The RPG will introduce a newcomer-friendly strategic turn-based combat system, large maps, and mazes.
