Honkai Star Rail Beta Gameplay
Through the recent May-June beta, we have seen released gameplay that shows a slight step away from traditional Genshin Impact combat. Honkai Star Rail will follow a turn-based combat system more akin to the Final Fantasy franchise. Character roles will play just as an important part, however, with several character announcements having already been unveiled by HoYoverse, much to the excitement of fans. Characters feature similar special abilities to that of Genshin Impact characters, with a focus on special attack abilities and a strong anime art style. With leaked beta footage we can also see signs of daily and weekly boss challenges that players will be able to participate in for rewards. Set in a vibrant sci-fi setting, it's sure to be quite the palette cleanser for long-time fans of the Genshin Impact franchise.
