You can now experience Honkai Star Rail in VR for only $3,500 Dot Esports

One of the biggest new RPGs is now able to be experienced in a new, more realistic way—if Honkai Star Rail players can afford the cost of the necessary device.

The iOS version of Honkai Star Rail is available for owners of the new Apple Vision Pro to play in a new, immersive way, following a teaser of the compatibility mode from Hoyoverse last week. It has not yet been indicated this version will be made available for other VR headsets, locking this experience behind the hefty $3,500 price tag for the Apple product.

Players will be able to use the Apple Vision Pro to jump into battle alongside their favorite characters from the turn-based RPG’s growing universe of characters, in all of the locales they have enjoyed over the past year—including the upcoming release of the newest world, Penacony, in Honkai Star Rail’s anticipated 2.0 update.

However, the cost of the Apple Vision Pro will likely limit the usage of this feature within the game’s playerbase to a very small number of players—though there does not appear to be any additional benefits given to players who access the VR experience. Should players wish to use a controller alongside their Apple Vision Pro, they can sync a PlayStation DualSense or compatible Xbox controllers via Bluetooth.

To celebrate the release of the Penacony story and its unique cast of characters, players can enjoy a plethora of rewards upon simply logging into Honkai Star Rail over the next month, including Stellar Jade and Special Passes for summoning new characters like Black Swan or the returning Dan Heng-Imbibitor Lunae.

Honkai Star Rail’s 2.0 update, featuring the first foray into Penacony as the intergalactic story continues, is scheduled to launch over the next several hours.
