  • Go to your desktop, right-click on the date and time on your screen, and select Adjust date and time option.
  • This will open the settings app, where you will see a bunch of different settings.
  • Turn off the Set time zone automatically and the Set time automatically settings.
  • Now, an option to change time will appear underneath the Set time automatically settings.
  • Click on it, edit the date, and set it to anywhere in the future before June 12.

The steps are similar for mobile devices, by the way. Just don't forget to unsync your clock first.

Now that your system's time is set, it's time to launch Wuthering Waves on your device.
