Honkai Impact 3rd is a gacha action game by Genshin Impact developer miHoYo.

Honkai Impact 3rd is the fourth game by Chinese developer miHoYo, now better-known in the West for free-to-play action RPG Genshin Impact. Much like GenshinHonkai uses gacha mechanics to reward players with new Valkyrie characters, but it's a much more action-oriented game than Genshin is, featuring gameplay more akin to games like Bayonetta or Astral Chain. There are also minigames to enjoy, ranging from bullet hell shooting to platforming. Honkai Impact 3rd also regularly gets seasonal content updates that bring unique gameplay with them. You can grab it for free right now on PC and mobile devices.
