Gamescom 2023 is slowly filling up with big names from the video games industry and Chinese publisher and developer HoYoverse is the latest company to join the list. The highly successful studio behind global phenomenon Genshin Impact, more recent triumph Honkai: Star Rail, and highly anticipated Zenless Zone Zero is coming to Cologne, Germany, as well.

All three titles as well as Honkai Impact 3rd, the eldest game of the quartet, will be present on the showfloor with specially decorated booths for all of them. The PS5 version of Honkai: Star Rail, which is due to launch later this year, will be playable for visitors alongside Zenless Zone Zero.

The sci-fi action RPG doesn’t have a set release date yet, but it’s a good sign that HoYoverse is ready to publicly show off the title at a convention like this.

It’s an exciting summer for HoYoverse’s flagship games: Genshin Impact 4.0 will arrive in August with the Fontaine region and a flood of additional characters, beginning the next grand chapter of the story. Honkai: Star Rail 1.2 is coming out in July, adding the most anticipated characters yet and expanding the game’s content in every direction imaginable.

HoYoverse joins heavyweights such as Nintendo, Microsoft, and Bethesda in Cologne from August 23 to 27, 2023, for Europe's biggest video game convention.
