Should you pick male or female Rover (MC) in Wuthering Waves?

With the release of Wuthering Waves, players can dive into all the gacha goodness they've come to know and love from other huge titles in the genre like Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail. Like these games, the first choice you'll need to make is deciding whether to pick a male or female MC. The good news is there's really not a whole lot to worry about with this choice.

Which MC gender should you choose in Wuthering Waves?

To get straight to the point, the only difference here is aesthetic. If you prefer how the male Rover looks, go ahead and pick them. On the other hand, if you're all about the character design of the female Rover, then go ahead and select them for your adventure. There is no difference in how the story will play out in the game and there's no canon MC in the game either.

Much like Genshin and Honkai, you'll also be summoning a bunch of other characters to join your MC on their epic journey and having them help you out in battle. As such, your MC will, over time, fade into the background as you build up a party with characters you really enjoy playing with.

Can you switch between male and female MC?

While fans have noted on the subreddit and in comments sections that they'd love to be able to switch between the male and female Rover in Wuthering Waves, that is unfortunately not possible. Once you've selected a gender, you'll be locked into that choice for the remainder of your time in the game.

That's everything you need to know to help you make your decision on picking a male or female Rover in Wuthering Waves. Which gender did you go for? Let us know down in the comments below.
