Honkai: Star Rail from Genshin Impact Developer Gets New Trailer at Gamescom

As part of this 2022’s Gamescom event, Hoyoverse reveals a brand new story trailer for its upcoming turn-based RPG, Honkai: Star Rail.

A lot of Hoyoverse and Honkai Impact fans seem to be patiently waiting for more news about its upcoming turn-based role-playing game Honkai: Star Rail. The developers have been a bit stingy with information about the title, only using major gaming events like Gamescom 2022 and Summer Game Fest last June as platforms to deliver important updates to its fans. Now, Hoyoverse has dropped a brand-new trailer for Honkai: Star Rail that features more of the game’s story and characters.


Honkai: Star Rail was first revealed by Hoyoverse back in October 2021. The shift of genre from action-RPG to turn-based likely came as a surprise for fans of both Honkai Impact and Genshin Impact. However, the Hoyoverse community was probably still excited about the title as it likely offered something refreshing and new, no matter how different the game genre was. What’s more, with Honkai: Star Rail still being part of the Honkai Impact universe, familiar characters are part of the title and will likely be given more focus in future story updates like the recently released trailer.

As part of Gamescom 2022’s Opening Night, Hoyoverse shared a new trailer video for Honkai: Star Rail. Titled the “Nightmare Trailer,” the footage shows one of the game’s characters, Dan Heng, experiencing a nightmare while onboard the Astral Express. Not much is revealed about the two distinct male characters in Dan’s nightmare. However, the narrator does mention the name “Jing Yuan.” For fans who have been following Honkai: Star Rail‘s 2nd closed beta leakers, they will likely recognize the white-haired man as Jing Yuan and the black-haired man as Blade. These two seem to be upcoming five-star characters that were revealed in the 2nd beta.

Unfortunately, Hoyoverse still seems interested in leaving its followers hanging with the recent trailer. Nothing new about the gameplay or Honkai: Star Rail‘s official release date was announced, which is likely what fans are hoping to know more about. The trailer does not even provide any context about Dan Heng’s nightmare, Jing Yuan, or Blade, leaving fans to speculate about how they are connected to the game’s story on their own.

Nevertheless, Hoyoverse is likely to reveal more information about Honkai: Star Rail soon. With the 2nd closed beta closing last June 2022, the devs have already probably received a lot of feedback to further improve the game before launch. Hopefully the fans will not have to wait too long, and that Honkai: Star Rail will get an official release date sooner than later.

Honkai: Star Rail is currently in development for PC, iOS, and Android.
