A brand-new Honkai Star Rail event is departing – but what exactly is the Xianzhou Cruise and how can players earn an iPhone or PS5?
Honkai Star Rail update 1.2 is preparing to kick off, and in the leadup to the arrival of Blade and Kafka, HoYoverse isn’t letting the players rest for a moment.
The next major update is bringing two new areas, a new Echo of War, a story expansion, a new Stagnent Shadow, five new events and more to our favorite gacha title.
But before all that, it seems that HoYoverse has a new surprise in store for us all.
What Is the Xianzhou Cruise Event in Honkai Star Rail?
The Xianzhou Cruise event is a Honkai: Star Rail web event that tasks users with playing a Flappy Bird-inspired minigame in order to earn tickets to redeem for prizes.
In the event’s gameplay, players must tap their phone screen (or left click on PC) to cause their Trailblazer Starskiff to jump, avoiding obstacles in an attempt to make it as far as possible before crashing.
Each attempt will grant players the use of a new power-up to keep things fresh.
In addition, a Voice Control mode, allowing players to use their voice to pilot the Starskiff, will be launching on mobile devices on July 19, 2023.
By playing this event, all players will be able to earn an exclusive Avatar Frame and up to 90 free Stellar Jade. However, the more exciting draw is that players can also earn Exploration Tickets which can be used to participate in select reward pool lotteries.
These lotteries will allow players a chance to earn a number of prizes, including an iPhone 14 Pro, a PlayStation 5, and more.
