Into the Stars
Honkai: Star Rail still has a ways to go before it takes HoYoverse fans on a journey through the stars.
Luckily, the Honkai: Star Rail trailer that dropped during the Summer Games Fest has done a bang-up job keeping the hype alive.
Peep these six hype moments from HoYoverse’s latest Honkai: Star Rail trailer.
Every Honkai: Star Rail character has a flashy animation for their ult.
You might have seen March 7th and Dan Heng, but have you seen Seele?
What about Serval? Talk about playing an electric guitar.
In short, there are plenty of mysterious, cool-looking characters that players can count on enjoying in the game.
The Honkai: Star Rail trailer focuses on a few points of danger like this computer lab scene.
The crowded computer lab is full of red warning screens — not a good sign. Read the alarm on the team’s face as they scramble for a solution.
Honkai: Star Rail takes place in a futuristic world. Naturally, that means the enemies would match the setting.
Most enemies are high-tech, robotic creatures, like the ones visible in the trailer. Expect mechs and lasers.
The protagonist shields March 7th from a beam of light.
We don’t know what’s going on, but absorbing huge amounts of energy in games always amounts to something dangerous and powerful.
Something doesn’t seem right...
We know Kafka because of her early appearance in the beta. She’s the one who seems to bring the protagonist to life.
There’s something about the scene that’s kind of suggestive. She leans in, forcing what seems like a ball of energy into his chest, as she whispers...
“That’s the you I like.”
The name “Xianzhou Luofu” hints at Chinese origins. This one’s not even in the beta.
Xianzhou Luofu leaked before the Summer Game Fest. It showed for only a few seconds in the actual trailer, but it’s sure to mean more in the future in the ever-expanding world of Honkai.
Most of the scenes in the latest trailer come from the beginning chapter of Honkai: Star Rail. Beta testers already know where these scenes come from.
Everyone else? I guess you’ll have to wait to see for yourself.
Honkai: Star Rail is currently in development for PC, iOS, and Android. Hopefully, it’ll have a date soon. May this journey lead us starward.
