The highly anticipated PlayStation 5 port of Honkai: Star Rail, developed by HoYoverse, is set to release soon. Following the success of its console debut with Genshin Impact, HoYoverse decided to bring its newest turn-based hit Honkai: Star Rail to PS5 as well.
Here’s what you need to know about the PlayStation port of HoyoVerse’s Honkai: Star Rail.
Aside from the PS5, will Honkai: Star Rail come to the PS4?
Unfortunately, there are currently no plans to bring the game to the older PlayStation 4.
The Summer Game Fest 2023 trailer and the PlayStation store listing for Honkai: Star Rail specifically mention the PS5 platform only.
Will HoYoverse release an Xbox version of Honkai: Star Rail?
At this time, it is unlikely that Honkai: Star Rail will be released on Xbox. HoYoverse has a strong partnership with PlayStation, and there have been no indications of a deal being struck with Microsoft for an Xbox release.
While Xbox gamers can play PC games through Xbox Game Pass, there’s currently no mention of a dedicated Honkai: Star Rail for Xbox.
Honkai: Star Rail PlayStation 5 port release date
Along with the new trailer, Sony revealed in the State of Play 2023 event that Honkai: Star Rail will be released on PS5 on October 11, 2023. This coincides with the launch of version 1.4, a highly anticipated upgrade from 1.3.

The upcoming PS5 port of Honkai: Star Rail is an exciting development for fans of the game and PlayStation players alike.
