At the time of writing this, Honkai Star Rail is not available to play on Mac. The game is only available on Mobile, PC, and eventually, will be playable on the PlayStation.

HoYoverse has yet to announce any future plans for Mac functionality. Due to the lack of a Genshin Impact Mac version, it is unlikely that Honkai Star Rail will ever come to the Apple platform.

That said, there are several workarounds players can do to gain access to Honkai Star Rail on their Mac.

How To Get Honkai Star Rail Running On A Mac

The first workaround is downloading an Android Emulator for your Mac. Doing this will make it possible for you to access the Google Play Store and download Honkai Star Rail. Then, you can play the game via the emulator from now on. 

Boot Camp is another way to install and play Honkai Star Rail on your Mac. Simply download and set up Boot Camp by following the on-screen instructions. Then, it will be possible to download Honkai Star Rail via direct download on the HoYoverse website or via the Epic Games Store.

Final Considerations

It should be noted that both of these methods open up players to possible account or IP bans. HoYoverse has stated that using any third-party applications surrounding Honkai Star Rail (including VPNs, emulators, mods, etc.) could lead to a temporary ban or account termination.

It is recommended not to use these methods if you plan on spending money in the game, as there is no way to know if or when your account will be permanently banned. 

So, if you want to play through the main story of Honkai Star Rail and are not too attached to your progress, this method is a surefire way to do just that. And that's everything you need to know about how to play Honkai Star Rail on Mac.
