HoYoverse’s Honkai: Star Rail has exceeded 20 million downloads in just a day after it was released on personal computers (PC) and smartphones. This achievement is twice the number of pre-registrations it accumulated prior to its release. The game is a free-to-play, turn-based RPG created by the Chinese gaming company, which is also responsible for the popular game Genshin Impact.
The fact that Honkai: Star Rail has already reached 20 million downloads only a day after its release bodes well for its upcoming launch on PlayStation 5 (PS5) and PlayStation 4 (PS4) later this year. The game was previously announced to be available for these consoles alongside its PC and mobile versions at release, but it was delayed for further development. The game’s fan base has since been anticipating its release on consoles, and the number of downloads received upon its release on PC and smartphones is a testament to its popularity.
Overall, Honkai: Star Rail’s impressive performance on release is a testament to its captivating gameplay and immersive storyline that has got many gamers hooked. The game’s upcoming launch on PS5 and PS4 later this year is expected to receive tremendous support from its already massive fan base.
