Wuthering Waves, the anticipated open world RPG from Kuro Game, has just released two new trailers featuring another Resonator and the freshly implemented weather system.
Wuthering Waves recently held a Closed Beta last April, and still doesn’t have a concrete release date. It will be free to play on PC and mobile devices. You can watch today’s new trailers on the Wuthering Waves YouTube channel. The first trailer centered on Aalto, a new character who also got a full profile page on the official site:
Each of the Resonator showcases has impressed, revealing some very distinct personalities with interesting motivations and some truly terrific performances.
Aalto is no exception, a so-called Information Broker, making them largely unpredictable. The voice acting is top notch, smoothly transitioning between playful banter and legitimate threat. Their combat, style, and backstory also make a compelling addition.
Aalto’s penchant for deception also comes through in their abilities, as he can create mist clones of himself to mislead enemies during combat. Mist is woven throughout their skills, including defense, and it’ll likely be a popular kit.
The second trailer that was released today reveals much less, though it’s no less spectacular. It shows off the game’s new weather system with gameplay footage, centering on slow landscape shots:
The addition of rain, rising suns, and other environmental details are just as satisfying as expected. Like the land and structures, these weather features are finely polished. They’re sure to improve immersion, an essential for any open world, since exploration and depth account for a lot of the genre’s appeal.
For those who remain skeptical, it’s important to note that the new showcase is still only a work in progress, so future trailers will continue to improve on any minute details that aren’t yet up to par. To revisit some actual gameplay, 11 action-packed minutes were revealed last March.
