Honkai: Star Rail is the latest game from miHoYo, creators of Genshin Impact, Tears of Themis, and Honkai: Impact. A free-to-play tactical RPG set in the Honkai universe, Star Rail is set to take players on a cosmic journey across the stars. And now, you can join a new beta testing program called the Galaxy Explorer Program.
The Galaxy Explorer Program was announced on the morning of March 10, with a post on the game’s official Twitter. miHoYo specified that this is a little different from the closed beta in that the tests are separate and on a smaller scale. Additionally, the Galaxy Explorer Program will allow batches of players who applied to join instead of one big wave.
How to sign up for the Honkai: Star Rail beta
Simply head to the official HoYoLab website and check out the terms and conditions to sign up. There are a few requirements for joining the Galaxy Explorer Program beta, and once you’ve checked them out, you will be directed to the survey site.
The survey will ask you a few questions designed to figure out which batch of the Galaxy Explorer Program is best for you. Even if you apply for the Galaxy Explorer Program now, there’s no guarantee you’ll be let into the next beta test. You’ll also need to sign the Testing Service Agreement, a kind of NDA for the service.
The next beta test deadline featuring the Galaxy Explorer Program is on March 14, 2022, at 05:00 am ET. You’ll have to sign up before that time to be let into the next round of beta testing. But, as the site explains, there is no guarantee you’ll be let into the small-scale beta tests. However, your application could be retained, and you’ll be more likely to be allowed into subsequent tests. Good luck!
