Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact 3rd developer HoYoverse recently detailed the first major update coming to the space fantasy turn-based RPG Honkai Star Rail on iOS, Android, and PC platforms. Honkai Star Rail is a lot of fun, and today pre-installation has gone live for the game’s 1.1 update. The download size for the update is about 4.5GB on iPad and 7.5GB on PC. If you pre-install it, you will only need to do a small app update from the store when the update goes live rather than waiting to download the in-game content from within on the release date. This update goes live on June 7th worldwide bringing in an updated Herta Space Station, three new playable characters: Silver Wolf, Luocha, and Yukong, new companion missions, gameplay feature updates, and events. Watch the Honkai Star Rail 1.1 update trailer below:
To pre-install, you can click the Game Pre-Installation button on PC and then download while playing the game. On iOS and Android, tap the Pre-download resources package on the bottom left of the login screen. You cannot play while downloading on mobile so keep that in mind. Honkai Star Rail is available for free on the App Store for iOS here, on Google Play for Android here, and check it here on the Epic Games Store in addition to its regular PC version. I hope controller support added with or soon after the Honkai Star Rail 1.1 update as well. I’m also hoping it releases on PS5 soon so I can play on both iPad and PS5 as I do with Genshin Impact. Have you been playing Honkai Star Rail regularly since it launched on mobile and PC?
