Unfortunately, there isn’t currently a way to pre-register for Honkai: Star Rail. With no release date announced and the game’s second round of closed beta ending in June 2022, it seems likely that players will need to wait quite a bit longer before they’re able to jump into this newest adventure. This appears in line with what has happened at HoYoverse over the past several months, as the pandemic and other factors delayed Genshin Impact updates.

The best advice players can take if they want to be the first to know when Honkai: Star Rail pre-registration opens is to keep an eye on the game’s official website and sign up to receive email alerts. Once pre-registration opens, players can visit the app store of their desired platform and sign up there. PC users will be able to sign up via the game’s website.

We know from the two rounds of beta testing that Honkai: Star Rail has gone through that the game will feel different from Honkai Impact 3rd. The hack and slash combat that the previous game has been replaced by a turn-based combat system with tactical RPG elements.
