Honkai: Star Rail Announces PS5 Release Window 

Honkai: Star Rail's release window on PlayStation 5 has finally been revealed.

Honkai: Star Rail is finally receiving a console port, as a PlayStation 5 release window was announced during Summer Game Fest 2023. This follows fan speculation since launch, as the game was initially only available on PC and mobile platforms, and the PS5 fans had to look on with jealousy in their eyes, as players got to ride their star trains without them.

Sony and miHoYo had confirmed that Honkai: Star Rail would be coming to PlayStation platforms in the past, but no release date had been given. This is even though Genshin Impact, miHoYo’s other massive title, has a presence on PlayStation systems, and fans on that platform had hoped to be able to explore the stars alongside the players on mobile and PC.

Honkai: Star Rail Is Coming To PlayStation 5 In Q4 2023

Honkai: Star Rail was featured during Summer Game Fest 2023, where it was announced that the game is finally coming to PS5 in Q4 2023. The trailer also featured an announcement for a new character, Luka, a four-star character who uses a mechanical robot arm in battle, with physical attacks that can tear opponents apart.

Luka is an underworld warrior who started out as a cage fighter before taking his mechanical arm to the battlefield, where he gets to show off his mixed martial arts skills against foes from the Underworld. The trailer offered players their first look at Luka before his release in a future patch, as he has yet to be given a solid release date.

The PS5 players will be able to experience more content in Honkai: Star Rail when it launches on their system, as the Version 1.1 patch has launched, bringing new characters to the game. This includes five-star characters like Silver Wolf and Luocha and four-star characters like Yukong. Silver Wolf. If you’re lucky, you can draw these characters and add them to your party right now.

It’s a shame that there is no solid release window on PS5, but if fans have the option to play it on other systems, then they can at least jump in there and keep their account info, as Honkai: Star Rail is a cross-platform/cross-progression game. Hopefully, the same will be true when the PS5 version launches and fans who can’t wait can easily bring their characters and progress to Sony’s latest system. Honkai: Star Rail is coming to PlayStation 5 in Q4, 2023, and is available now on PC and mobile devices.
