I'll try not to abuse the 'Skip' button.

Wuthering Waves studio Kuro Games has actively been working on improving the game since its launch. Many improvements are coming in the future, but the major one is that they plan to tackle the number of unskippable cutscenes.

Like for many others, my main issue with Wuthering Waves has been the number of unskippable cutscenes. For example, I like Scar as a character, but I have to admit his Shepherd and sheep stories didn't really hold my attention. Afterward, I had to guess most of the answers to his questions.

The story of the game isn't bad at all, but sometimes you just want to go around fighting and exploring without having to be stuck in a cutscene. It's good to have an option to skip even if you don't use it all the time.

To make this aspect of Wuthering Waves better, the developers plan to:

  • Redesign the Skip function button.
  • Increase the number of skippable cutscenes for the main quest story.
  • Introduce support for skipping character dialogue outside of cutscenes (I am excited about this since I read very fast and the characters sometimes talk too slowly).
  • Add the Companion Story for Resonator Yinling to the game soon.

However, the cutscenes aren't the only thing that Kuro Games plans to improve on. They will also optimize the combat experience of players. I have actually enjoyed fighting in the game quite a lot, especially the chaining of attacks with your Resonators. However, there is always room for improvement.

Lack of signification of combat actions and visual feedback from your actions will be optimized. Additionally, they will work on improving the controller experience with combat for those who prefer it over the mouse and keyboard.

Kuro Games will also be providing us with a voucher to make up for any disappointment during the Beginner's Choice Convene event. The Voucher of Reciprocal Tides is a free pull for a single 5-Star Standard Resonator of your choice (I'll definitely be grabbing Jianxin). So, make sure to log in and claim the voucher!

On top of the voucher, we will also receive Radiant Tide x 10 as compensation for all of the issues affecting the game. This reward can be claimed by everyone who reaches Union Level 2 by July 3, 2024. You'll have time to progress in the game and get cool rewards.

Wuthering Waves will also be getting new content in the future, including optimization of some NPC art assets, a layered map display function, and more Echo transformations. I haven't had any issues with the game's map so far, but I'm interested to see what the layered layout will look like.

Even though the game has only been out for a few days, I appreciate the amount of effort the developers have put into already improving it by listening to their community's feedback. The future seems bright for Wuthering Waves.
