Honkai: Star Rail, the latest game from HoYoverse, has already surpassed 20 million downloads, just two days after launch. HoYoverse is the team behind the popular Genshin Impact, which is home to tens of millions of players in its own right.
The news of Honkai: Star Rail’s major milestone comes by way of Weibo via the Director of Research & Insights at Niko Partners, Daniel Ahmad.
As Ahmad notes, Honkai: Star Rail had over 30 million pre-registered users before the game’s launch, and has broken a record by “reaching [number] 1 on the iOS game download chart in more countries than any prior game.”
While Honkai: Star Rail may look like Genshin Impact, the two play vastly differently from one another. Star Rail is a turn-based RPG, while Genshin focuses more on real-time action.
Interestingly, Honkai: Star Rail is only available on PC and mobile right now. The game is planned to launch for PS4 and PS5 at a later point, but there’s no word on when we can expect the PlayStation versions. It’s unknown if the game will come to other platforms like Xbox or Nintendo Switch.
Honkai: Star Rail is available for free across iOS, Android, and PC right now.
