After a brief delay to the livestream which left PS5 and PS4 owners on tenterhooks, there was no confirmation of a Honkai: Star Rail release date for Sony’s systems in the title’s latest broadcast. There had been some rumours that the previously announced PlayStation port of HoYoverse’s turnbased RPG would be made available alongside the upcoming v1.1 update, but while it’s still somewhat possible, the lack of news makes it unlikely at this point.

That means PlayStation-only players will probably miss out on the anticipated Silver Wolf and Luocha banners, although we’re confident they’ll get a re-run in the near future. The good news is that this update seems lighter than many had anticipated – especially on the story front. That means there’ll be less to catch up on when the title does eventually arrive on PS5 and PS4, which is now more likely to be alongside v1.2 given what we know.

In addition to the new characters – which also include Yukong, who’ll eventually be available for free in v1.2 – there are some pretty cool permanent additions which you’ll be able to pick up on at any point, including the opening of a museum in Belabog which you’ll need to manage and run in return for rewards. New companion quests will delve into the stories of Silver Wolf, Bailu, Yanqing, and Luocha, while there’ll be the opportunity to earn ten free pulls just by logging in.

While the update does have quite a lot of good stuff in it, many fans were hoping for a continuation of the main story, but it looks like that’s now on hold. That’s not exactly bad news for PlayStation fans, however, because it means it’s going to be easier to catch up when the ports do eventually release. The v1.1 update will get underway on 7th June, and is scheduled to run through 18th July, which is probably when you should mark your calendars for potential PS5 and PS4 news.
