State of Play

With the very recent announcement of the game’s official release date, it is certainly safe to assume that Version 1 of Wuthering Waves has very nearly reached its final state.

Most changes detailed during the special program involved minor audio issues, improved cinematic cutscenes, and better rewards for the Rovers who are out exploring the Tacet Fields. Below, we’ll go over every change Kuro Studios is planning to implement before the game’s official release date!

Echo System Adjustments

During the CBT2, most players complained that you could not recycle useless Echoes. Kuro Games has listened to the feedback and is implementing a system wherein players can recycle 3 useless Echoes into a single, more powerful Echo.

Additionally, Wuthering Waves will allow for players to skin their regular variant Echoes with their Phantom variants, effectively allowing us Wuthering Wave players to pseudo-shiny hunt!

New Story Encounters

Kuro Games has also been listening to criticisms about the story feeling somewhat flat during some parts of the story. To solve this, they’ve decided to re-work some parts of the story, while adding new enemy encounters during story segments!

Improved Lip Animations

Many players in the CBT2 complained that character animations seemed stiff during story segments because of the lack of lip animations, and just animations in general. Kuro Games has decided to address this and work on adjusting and adding lip animations!

Events

With the number of pre-registrants for Wuthering Waves climbing up to a massive 16,000,000 players, the developers of the game have decided to incentivize further pre-registrations by granting players like us a bounty of rewards for hitting pre-registration milestones!
