Wuthering Waves is the latest gacha game on the block, and one that - so far - looks as though it could honestly give Genshin Impact a run for its money. With a slightly better pity system and satisfying combat, Wuthering Waves has definitely appeared to build on the game’s it’s so clearly inspired by.

It comes as no surprise that the gacha system in this game is how you unlock new characters and weapons in Wuthering Waves then. On this page, we’ve detailed all of the characters - Resonators - you can expect to spend your pre-registration rewards on trying to unlock once Wuthering Waves releases on May 23.
