As confirmed by a delightfully moody trailer narrated by Stellaron Hunter (and key character) Kafka, the uber-popular turn-based gacha RPG Honkai: Star Rail will finally release on PS5 from 11th October. The small print at the end of the trailer mentions that the game is a PS5 console exclusive for a “limited time”, so presumably it will launch on other platforms later.

Interestingly, the game’s current update, Celestial Eyes Above Mortal Ruins, is scheduled to run until around 10th October, so it looks like the PS5 version will release alongside the next major revision, which will include new character banners, story content, and events. We’ll obviously keep you updated through until launch – and, of course, beyond.
