Yes, Wuthering Waves will be free to play when it releases. The game is in development for PC, iOS, and Android devices. This means players will be able to download it from the appropriate store page without spending any money.

This currency will be used to purchase the required items needed to use on the gacha system to unlock new characters and weapons.
