Wuthering Waves is finally out, and players who pre-registered for the free-to-play game will want to know what rewards they can claim and how.

Kuro Games finally released Wuthering Waves, the much anticipated free-to-play game that combines Genshin Impact’s gacha mechanics and charm with Soulslike combat. Before its launch, the game ran a campaign to have players pre-register, offering rewards for those who officially signed up before the release date.

However, logging into the game for the first time isn’t enough to claim the pre-register rewards. Here is every reward players who pre-registered for Wuthering Waves can claim and how they can claim them.

Full list of Wuthering Waves pre-register rewards

Players who pre-registered for Wuthering Waves are eligible to claim multiple rewards including Shell Credits and Lustrous Tides.

Much like other games that run pre-registration campaigns before launch, the more players who pre-registered, the better rewards players got. Fortunately, Wuthering Waves received much attention thanks to its constant comparisons to two major, established franchises in Genshin Impact and Dark Souls. 

The pre-register rewards

Here is the full lineup of pre-register rewards for Wuthering Waves:

  • Shell Credit x 80,000 (5 million pre-registrations)
  • Advanced Resonance Potion x 10 (10 million pre-registrations)
  • Astrite x 200 (15 million pre-registrations)
  • Sigil: En Route x 1 (20 million pre-registrations)
  • Lustrous Tide x 20 (30 million pre-registrations)

In addition to these rewards, players can also receive a Rangers’ Series weapon of choice. This extra reward is thanks to the Wuthering Waves social media platforms reaching the milestone of five million followers.

How to claim pre-register rewards in Wuthering Waves

After completing Wuthering Waves’ tutorial, pre-registration rewards can be claimed from the in-game mail.

Players need to go through a tutorial at the start of Wuthering Waves, which teaches players the general mechanics while introducing key characters and story threads. The tutorial ends with a boss fight against the Overlord-level Crownless. Pre-register players can claim their rewards after fighting the Crownless.
