Honkai Star Rail is the latest in HoYoverse's success stories of free-to-play experiences. The sci-fi RPG is set to receive its first big update with version 1.1, set for release on June 6, 2023. Players anticipate its launch with bated breath. Thus far, the game has enjoyed popularity since its launch across major platforms.

That invites the question of whether Honkai Star Rail's latest update be available on the PS4.

While Honkai Star Rail still has not arrived on PS4, there could be a silver lining in the future


Honkai Star Rail is yet to receive a version for the last-gen PlayStation console. So far, it is only available on Android, iOS, and PC platforms. However, its expansion to other platforms is inevitable. Thanks to the PlayStation announcement trailer for the game that dropped a couple of months ago, we know as much.

It confirmed the existence of renditions under development for both PS4 and PS5. However, we do not have a concrete release window yet. The trailer only states a vague "Coming Soon" with nothing else to look forward to. However, players can be assured they will enjoy the update 1.1 and more whenever it launches. That is because Honkai Star Rail is an online-only game.

So whichever platforms it is ported to will receive the latest, most up-to-date version of the game with all features. Thankfully PS4 players may not need to wait much longer. According to recent leaks, the game's launch on PS4 and PS5 is imminent and could coincide with the version 1.1 release. Whatever the case, we must determine when the update will launch early next month.

What does Honkai Star Rail 1.1 update bring to the table?

Dubbed "Galactic Roaming," the most exciting aspect of this update would be new characters. Three new characters are introduced thanks to the new banner. They are:

Silver Wolf

  • Rarity: 5 star
  • Element: Quantum
  • Path: Nihility


  • Rarity: 5 star
  • Element: Imaginary

There are also a handful of new events:
