RWBY: Grimm Eclipse is a four-player, online co-op, hack and slash game based upon Rooster Teeth's RWBY series.

Fans and players will experience RWBY like never before with new locations, new enemies and a brand new storyline that keeps the combat intense and the action nonstop.

With an original storyline stemming from the series, RWBY: Grimm Eclipse is a fast and powerful brawler packed with nonstop action. Players take on the role as one of the four Huntresses – Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang – and fight against the mysterious Dr. Merlot who has returned to wreak havoc on the World of Remnant with his mutant Grimm creations.

The World of Remnant is crawling with ravenous beasts bent on destroying mankind. Fortunately, where there are monsters, there are monster hunters. Huntsman and Huntresses of all shapes and sizes brandish deadly weapons in their quest to protect the people of the world. Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are four Huntresses in training at Beacon Academy, one of the world's most prestigious combat schools. Together, these girls form Team RWBY, and the challenges they'll face together will put their teamwork to the test.

“Since its inception in 2013, RWBY has developed a highly devoted fan-base from around the world, with more than 150M+ views. Rooster Teeth, along with our development partner Panic Button, are really excited to deliver RWBY: Grimm Eclipse on PS4™ and Xbox One and offer fans a whole new way to experience the RWBY universe,” said Michael Hadwin, Games Director, Rooster Teeth.

Rooster Teeth is also offering Team JNPR, downloadable content (DLC) for both PS4 (available today) and Xbox One (available January 18th) for $4.99 USD, €4.72. Team JNPR features four fan-favorite characters - Jaune Arc, Nora Valkyrie, Pyrrha Nikos, and Lie Ren. These all new, fully voiced characters can be played in the Story campaign and in Horde Mode. Each character has its own unique combat style, upgradeable skills, and new trophies to collect. 

“It has been an amazing experience to work with Rooster Teeth to deliver RWBY: Grimm Eclipse and the mega-popular RWBY property to the console gaming community,” said Adam Creighton, Studio GM, Panic Button. “The frenetic combat, online teamplay elements, and nonstop action of RWBY: Grimm Eclipse make it a fun, engaging way to experience the world of RWBY.”

The gameplay takes inspiration from Dynasty Warriors and Left 4 Dead offering over-the-top combat along with engaging missions and storytelling.
