Honkai: Star Rail opens second closed beta sign-ups

Honkai Star Rail second closed beta

HoYoverse has announced the beginning of the Honkai: Star Rail second closed beta sign-ups. The next game from the makers of Genshin Impact is generating a lot of hype, surely from the fact that the aforementioned anime RPG was – and remains – a resounding success, but also because Honkai Star Rail is a spin-off from the acclaimed Honkai series. Fans will surely connect this game to Honkai Impact 3rd, with popular characters and storylines being expanded upon.

Honkai: Star Rail marks the first time that HoYoverse attempts to create a turn-based RPG, a very popular genre that is sometimes also known as the hero collector RPG. However, instead of the traditional stage-based gameplay offered by most games of the ilk, Honkai: Star Rail is going full open world, showcasing the ambition of the China-based developer.

You can sign up for the second Honkai: Star Rail closed beta on the official website. Sign ups run until May 15, 2022 at 12:00 (UTC+8) and you can choose the platforms, PC, Android, or iOS, with your account being bound to the first one that you log in. There will be a wipe at the end of the closed beta, so don't get too attached to your progress and characters.

There's no starting date for this beta yet, so you should keep an eye out for an announcement soon. Read the official FAQ for all the details on the beta and watch the trailer below.
