Honkai Star Rail PS5, PS4 story

Honkai Star Rail is the fourth instalment in the Honkai series, but doesn’t require playing the previous games to understand its story. After the events of Honkai Impact 3rd, Welt Yang travels to an alternate universe on his own adventure.

The central character is called the Trailblazer, a humanoid implanted with a Stellaron, a seed of ruin by the God of Destruction. You’re rescued by the crew of the Astral Express and side with them on the adventure to find answers. However, like any live-service game, the story is definitely set to expand as future updates arrive.

Honkai Star Rail PS5, PS4 gameplay

There hasn’t been official gameplay shown for the PlayStation versions of Honkai Star Rail, but the game is a turn-based RPG set in space.

Similar to other Gacha games, players will be able to unlock new characters with their own special sets of abilities to use in battle. Characters are predominantly acquired through the Honkai Star Rail pity system and warping mechanic, giving players the chance to earn powerful featured characters and gear.

From there, you will assemble your characters into a Honkai Star Rail team comp and join the fray in intense, tactical turn-based action as you journey to different planets during the story.

Levelling up characters and making Honkai Star Rail builds is a core part of the gameplay loop, so you’ll be taking part in different activities to gear up your characters. When you’re ready, you can take those characters and teams into endgame content like the Honkai Star Rail Forgotten Hall to test your strength.
