These paths are Abundance (Heal), Destruction (DPS), Erudition (Multiple target DPS), Harmony (Utility Support), Hunt (Single target DPS), Nihility (Debuff), and Preservation (Defense)

The Astral Express, a space train that transports you around the game’s universe, allows you to go to several worlds in this future environment. Players will traverse to different locations — from the snow plains of Jarilo-IV to the Herta Space Station.

Honkai: Star Rail will be accessible on Windows, iOS, and Android on April 26. Ports for PlayStation 4 and 5 will follow in the future.
