HoYoverse has exciting news! They’re making big improvements to the games Honkai: Star Rail and Genshin Impact for the brand-new iPhone 15 Pro. This new iPhone has a super-fast A17 Pro chip, which means players can do cool things in these games that they couldn’t do on older phones.
HoYoverse’s game Genshin Impact became very popular when it came out in September 2020. Many people started playing it or came back to play new parts of the game.
Because of Genshin Impact’s success, HoYoverse made another game called Honkai: Star Rail, which is a sci-fi game where you take turns in battles. They said they would update it like they did with Genshin Impact.
When Honkai: Star Rail came out in April 2023, it was one of the most downloaded games, with over 20 million downloads in one day. Right now, the latest update for Honkai: Star Rail is version 1.3, but they will have another update when Apple releases a new product.
At the recent Apple Event on September 12th, they talked about two games, Honkai: Star Rail and Genshin Impact. HoYoverse said that they will make big improvements for them on the iPhone 15 Pro.
For Honkai: Star Rail, they are going to make the water in the game look much better with new updates. They showed a video of the game running on a powerful A17 Pro chip, and it looked amazing with improved water animations and textures.
Also, the iPhone 15 Pro will let players use the highest graphics settings, which usually need a lot of power, even on a mobile device.
Meng Wang from HoYoverse thinks the iPhone 15 Pro has a really strong graphics processor (GPU). They showed how the game Genshin Impact looks and works well on this phone.
They’re also going to make Genshin Impact look even better on the new iPhone by improving the graphics. Plus, they mentioned that a special technology from Apple called MetalFX will make the game run faster and respond quicker when you play it.
They also talked about another technology called FidelityFX Super Resolution from AMD, but that’s for the computer version of Genshin Impact, not the iPhone.
We don’t know exactly when the new updates for Honkai: Star Rail and Genshin Impact will come out. They might be available after the iPhone 15 Pro launches on September 22, but they could also be released with the new iPhone.
To stay informed, fans should check HoYoverse’s official channels for updates because HoYoLab regularly shares information about new features and updates.
Leaked information about Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.4 indicates that it might come out in early October. That means people who have the new iPhone 15 Pro can enjoy the new stuff in the update at the same time as players on other devices.
As for Genshin Impact Version 4.1, it’s set to be released on September 27, bringing new storylines, characters you can play as, and fixes for any problems.
