Mihoyo’s Honkai Impact third motion RPG launched on PC again in 2019 with its own launcher, absent of any reliable announcements to enlarge to other storefronts. Perhaps that may not usually be the case though, as gamers in China determined a mention of Steam in the consumer thru Mihoyo’s test server.

Redditor hzy980512—who also noted the Genshin Impact Epic Games Store leak returned in March—highlighted a publish on Keylol in which a screenshot of Honkai’s take a look at patron surfaced that appears to mention Steam. The actual photo lists trademarks, the identify on the left is where Steam is cited, with the call indicating it’s for a “restrained-time download.” The badge at the proper just seems like an average reward for Honkai’s 5th yr anniversary, that is developing in October.

The 2nd photograph thru the Keylol post shows the real take a look at client, detailing the bonuses for the primary player brand that mentions Steam. Honkai Impact third has given out emblems for anniversaries inside the beyond, and we’ve got additionally seen a few for other login events, so the second identify exams out. However, the put up mentions the listing has already been patched out of the sport, making it not possible to verify proper now.

For now, it is only a rumor, however context around Mihoyo’s previous moves lend it credibility. Back in May, Mihoyo updated its Honkai Impact 3rd PC launcher to work like Genshin Impact’s consumer. Honkai is the older of the 2, having firstly simply launched on cell in 2016 earlier than making its PC debut. Genshin Impact later got here to the Epic Games Store in June, making it the first western PC storefront Mihoyo supported.

Mihoyo didn’t verify the Genshin Impact launch with Epic till the week earlier than, so it is able to be some time earlier than you spot something come of Honkai’s Steam rumblings, if it even takes place at all. The rumor sparked remarks that there’s wish Mihoyo will give Genshin Impact the same remedy, making it to be had on both PC platforms.
