The Summer Game Fest 2023 (SGF 2023) has teased Honkai Star Rail's Luka as being playable and a PlayStation 5 port arriving by the end of this year. The trailer detailing the information is only a minute and 35 seconds long, yet some players might have missed it during the SGF 2023 event. This trailer confirms Honkai Star Rail will be available on the PS5 in Q4 2023.

However, no specific date or time has been listed. This means the game's port could arrive anytime between October 1, 2023, and December 31, 2023. The next section of this article shows the trailer in question, revealing some of Luka's combat prowess.

Honkai Star Rail reveals Luka, a 4-star Nihility character at SGF 2023, along with a PS5 update


The trailer at the SGF 2023 started with Silver Wolf, who became recently playable in Honkai Star Rail 1.1, sharing a monologue before the camera takes wide shots of the game's several cities. Yukong is then shown performing attacks before Luka is officially revealed in the Fight Club training for an upcoming bout.

All that is known about Luka is that he is a 4-star Physical unit of The Nihility Path and often uses his fists during combat. However, no release date has been released for the character yet.

Meanwhile, Silver Wolf teased a PS5 port at the end of the trailer before gamers eventually saw a message stating:


It is worth noting that Yukong has already been confirmed to be featured on a banner from June 28 to July 18, 2023. She is a 4-star Imaginary character accompanying Luoccha, Pela, and Qingque on the Event Warp.
