Honkai: Star Rail takes players aboard the Astral Express in a final stretch before the official launch. The final closed beta test for HoYoverse’s upcoming turn-based RPG just launched on January 24, 2023, with recruitment runs until February 2, 2023. Lucky players will be chosen to experience first-hand the thrilling journey across the galaxy, from landing on the Herta Space Station to Jarilo-VI and the all-new Xianzhou.
Players can sign up for the closed beta by visiting the official recruitment page, where they must log into their HoYoverse account, which is shared by all of the developer’s games and HoYoLAB. Click the Register button and fill out a little survey to seal the deal. Players must provide their Discord ID so that HoYoverse can contact you later.
In addition, players can participate in the pre-registration event to get an exclusive HoYoLAB avatar frame, which they can claim above the sign up button on the recruitment page.

Lucky players who qualify for the closed beta will be randomly chosen and notified via email, HoYoLAB, or Discord, so make sure to keep those channels open. While recruitment is random, avid players can increase their chances of winning by participating in Pom-Pom’s Galaxy Travel Guide web event, where 500 guaranteed spots are awarded to active players.
As part of the festivities, HoYoverse also released an awesome closed beta trailer titled Space Comedy. It introduces players to the daily life of Honkai: Star Rail’s colorful cast of characters, including a taste of new friends they can meet in Xianzhou. The lighthearted trailer is a testament to the fun in-game interactions players can expect while traversing the galaxy. Enjoy the video below and get excited about what the beta has to offer.
