Honkai: Star Rail Crosses Over One Million Players On PS5

The turn-based gacha has grown at a staggering rate.

Story Highlights

  • Honkai: Star Rail has crossed over one million players on the PS5, as announced by the devs on Twitter.
  • The devs are celebrating the milestone with the fans and have announced a huge event for the players.
  • Every player will get 200 Stellar Jades after November 24, 2023, and an extra 180 if conditions are met.

Honkai: Star Rail has clambered over a massive landmark, as recently announced by miHoYo on Twitter. The gacha RPG has seemingly surpassed one million players on the PlayStation 5 alone; yes, not counting other platforms. The achievement was met with a lot of positive reception by the fans of the game, complimenting the devs and their work for the free-to-play immersive experience. 

As a result, the team has launched an event to allow players to earn Stellar Jades. Honkai: Star Rail players will get a free sack of 200 Stellar Jades for the accounts registered before “2023/11/24 12:00 (UTC+8).” Besides, a Trailblazer level 4 or more is required to be eligible for the free Stellar Jades. All the Stellar Jade rewards will be allocated to players after November 24.

miHoYo has also started a comment event for players who seek to earn even more Stellar Jades. An additional 180 amount will be given to users who “reach 10 thousand comments on HoYoLAB.” The players will have to share their in-game screenshots of Honkai: Star Rail in the official HoYoLAB thread along with their consent for participation. It is a scarce resource, so the fans are excited for the event to earn over 200 Stellar Jades.

The premium currency can be used for warping or many other purchases like Star Rail Pass and Star Rail Special Pass. 

The RPG gacha garnered critical acclaim right after launch, resonating with old and new players of the gacha genre. To give more clarity, miHoYo’s established fame propelled Honkai: Star Rail to gain over 20 million downloads in just its launch day. Some players have even asked Genshin Impact to take notes from the major fan-favorite features and a massive number of rewards included in the fourth Honkai installment.

The turn-based combat approach was initially a point of concern for some users but ended up suiting the game quite well. Nevertheless, getting the grips of the title can take a while for most incoming new players. We suggest taking a look into Honkai: Star Rail’s beginners guide to get a grip on the basics. Also, stride through the write-up about the best 5-star characters before choosing one; it can make a noticeable difference in gameplay.

Honkai: Star Rail launched earlier this year on April 26, 2023, for PC, Android, and Apple devices. The PlayStation 5 launch soon followed on October 11, 2023, but a PS4 version remains to be announced. eXputer’s Abdul Haddi reviewed the game with a satisfying 4 out of 5 score, calling the entry worthy of all the hype it generated before release. It was praised for optimization, unique characters and story, compelling world, and more.
