Update: About a minute before HoYoverse’s Honkai: Star Rail livestream was scheduled to get underway today, the video was hastily removed due to technical issues. Online chatter has since centred on an Earthquake affecting things, so first of all we sincerely hope everyone’s okay.

The Chinese broadcast did go ahead, however, and outlined the anticipated Silver Wolf and Luocha banners, while also confirming some new companion content and a login event with the opportunity to earn up to ten pulls for free. However, there was no mention of the PS5 or PS4 versions.

The wait goes on for the English language stream, then, which is now scheduled for 27th May, 2023. By way of apology, HoYoverse will be gifting everyone 100 Stellar Jade – or “apolojade” as the community has colloquially taken to describing it.

There will be more Stellar Jade available to redeem during the broadcast, and we’ll share all of the promo codes through here so keep your eyes peeled for that page. In the meantime, we’ve included the times of the rescheduled stream below:

  • North America: 8:30pm PDT / 9:30pm MDT / 10:30pm CDT / 11:30pm EDT
  • UK/Ire: 4:30am BST
  • Europe: 5:30am CEST / 6:30am EEST
  • Asia/Oceania: 12:30pm JST / 11:30am AWST / 1:30pm AEST

Original Article: Honkai: Star Rail, the turnbased RPG from Genshin Impact developer HoYoverse, has been out about a month on PC and smartphones – but there’s still been no word on when the release will be available for PS5 and PS4. However, later this week, on 26th May, the game will get its inaugural Galactic Roaming livestream.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the developer or its approach to Genshin Impact, it hosts broadcasts every six weeks or so to reveal the contents of the next major update. In this case, the livestream will include everything you need to know about Honkai: Star Rail’s first major post-release refresh, which will presumably feature new banners, events, and content.

With the update due out around 6th June, many are hoping for more information on the previously announced PS5 and PS4 versions. It’s unlikely HoYoverse will release the ports outside of a big update, so if there’s no news during this latest livestream, we’ll likely have to wait until v1.2 later in the year. If you’d like to watch the broadcast, we’ve included all the times below:

  • North America: 4:30am PDT / 5:30am MDT / 6:30am CDT / 7:30am EDT
  • UK/Ire: 12:30pm BST
  • Europe: 1:30pm CEST / 2:30pm EEST
  • Asia/Oceania: 8:30pm JST / 7:30pm AWST / 9:30pm AEST
