Following yesterday's tease, Chinese developer Kuro Game launched the registration for the closed beta of its open-world action RPG Wuthering Waves and shared more details.
Players can register with this online form and the deadline is April 14. The beta test will happen on PC, iOS, and Android with the following requirements:
[Android] Android System of 5.1 version and above, snapdragon 855 and above, and with storage of 10GB and above.
[iOS] Model of iPhone 11 and above with storage of 10GB and above.
[PC] Device references:
<System> Windows 7 64-bit
<CPU> Intel i5 -7th generation/Ryzen 2700
<Graphic Card> Geforce 1060/RX 580
<Storage Remains> 40G
Interestingly, there won't be an NDA and footage from the beta can be shared freely on social media, so we can expect to see plenty when it starts on April 24.
Alongside the details, we also get a trailer, albeit it doesn't show gameplay. You can watch it below.
If you want to see more, including gameplay, recently the developer released another video focusing on the "Echo System" showing how monsters are attracted by humans and Resonators (the definition of the players in Wuthering Waves), so prolonged battles in the wilderness using much Resonance power can attract even more monsters.
When players defeat a monster, their abilities, named Echoes, become collectible. There are many Echo skills that players can collect including offense, defense, movement, and healing. The developers are planning to turn his system into one of the core parts of the game's gameplay experience.
Wuthering Waves doesn't have a release date just yet, but we know that it will be launched at some point in the future for PC, iOS, and Android. It was announced back in May 2021 and it was recently showcased at Tokyo Game Show, where it was welcomed by the crowd with interest. I actually wanted to play the demo build but the line was way too long. That being said, what I saw from others who were playing was definitely promising.
While there certainly are visual elements that create a comparison with the ultra-popular Genshin Impact, it remains to be seen just how similar it'll really be to the big daddy of free-to-play RPGs from China.
