Wuthering Waves will feature updated dialogues and an entirely new region to explore, which is sure to please returning players.

There are also new characters, like Chameleon and Chang Lee, who have been introduced with stunning models. But it’s not all friendly faces around here; prepare for challenging new bosses, including a female version of the Countess.

Exploration remains largely the same but with added gap points for faster traversal, which is always welcome when you’re grinding EXP.

There have also been significant updates to the Echo system, with the following being the most significant:

  • Reduced Stamina consumption: Earn echoes and materials without heavy stamina usage.
  • Less wait time: Collect echoes faster.
  • Echo combining: Combine five echoes to create higher-quality echoes.
  • Recycle for materials: Recycle old echoes to reclaim some materials for new ones.
  • More mobs: Increased mob presence in the open world for more echo drops.
