Honkai Star Rail's release will happen later today, on April 26, as the eagerly-anticipated game arrives on mobiles and PC. Developers MiHoYo have already provided three codes that players can use when beginning their new adventures. The latest trio has appeared on social media and was disclosed on a Japanese live stream.

Many players have been expecting HoYoverse to follow its typical system of Genshin Impact as far as codes are concerned. The popular RPG conducts routine giveaways to players to get different in-game resources. Honkai Star Rail will follow the same path after announcing the first three. Read on to find out the codes and when you'll be able to redeem them.

Update: 2 more codes have been provided by the developers post-launch. They have been added to the list mentioned below.

While fans may have anticipated codes for Honkai Star Rail in the long run, few would have expected them to appear so early. After all, the game's yet to be released, but the following three codes are up for redemption:

  • HSRGRANDOPEN1
  • HSRGRANDOPEN2
  • HSRGRANDOPEN3

The three of them contain plenty of in-game resources that could be incredibly helpful to the players starting out. Upon redeeming all of them, you will get 300 Star Jades and other items. Star Jades are the game's premium currencies, and you can exchange them for Star Rail Passes (used to obtain new characters).

The two additional codes:

  • Hsrver10xedlfe
  • STARRAILGIFT

How to redeem the codes?

Similar to Genshin Impact, Honkai Star Rail will allow you to redeem them using an external website.

To redeem the codes, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to this website - https://t.co/WZSKw7LMKz

  3. Copy and paste the codes that are mentioned in this article.
  4. Click on Redeem, and the relevant rewards will be sent to your in-game mailbox.

Note that the codes can only be redeemed once per account, and you can claim the rewards from the in-game inbox. The first set of codes will be applicable until April 30.
