miHoYo will release the PC version of Honkai Impact 3rd via its official website on December 26 in North America, Europe, and Korea, the developer announced.

Honkai Impact 3rd is currently available worldwide for iOS and Android, and has been downloaded over 200 million times. Here is an overview of the game, via miHoYo:

Set in the world plagued by cataclysms caused by “Honkai,” an arcane energy that can synthesize, imitate, or mutate substances natural or artificial. By infecting and transforming selected individuals into “Herrschers,” its empowered hosts, Honkai threats the very existence of humanity. To save the world from tyranny and annihilation, the international organization “Schicksa” has been training and deploying female warriors known as “Valkyries”, to combat Honkai and defend their faith.

Players will command a team of up to three characters (“Valkyries”) armed with unique attack, combo, evasion, and ultimate skills, freely switch between them on the battlefield to counter different enemy types. Valkyrie stats and skills can be customized and enhanced with a diverse arsenal and a level / rank-up system to suit each player’s style.

“The PC version will retain the authenticity and immersion of [Honkai Impact 3rd], meanwhile adding optimizations on controls and UI to ensure the smoothest gameplay possible,” said miHoYo CEO Forrest Wei Liu in a press release. “Cross-platform compatibility will also be realized for the PC version, which means one account can be used on both PC and mobile, and players can enjoy this title wherever they please.”
