According to some under-the-radar reports emerging out of the Unreal Fest in Shanghai, hotly anticipated Genshin Impact-esque gacha game Wuthering Waves will release on PS5 and PS4. The title – which will receive a second closed beta test imminently – has been quietly rebooted behind-the-scenes based on user feedback, with almost 90 per cent of the release’s lore allegedly rewritten since its first beta.
According to a translation of Hong Kong developer Kuro’s presentation, the PS5 version of the game will be on par with the PC edition running on Ultra graphics settings. Meanwhile, the PS4 version will offer visuals a tier or so above the best possible mobile presentation. A big feature of the project is its scalability across a variety of different hardware tiers.
The game itself doesn’t have a release date but does look alarmingly similar to Genshin Impact, with the HoYoverse hit leading to the creation of several copycats. It’ll be interesting to see if it can match the success of the established fantasy role-playing game, but based on the anticipation we’ve seen for it around Asia, it’s surely got a shot at snatching a few players away.
