It was only a few months ago that we were announcing the release date for RWBY: Grimm Eclipse.  At the RWBY NYCC 2016 panel on Sunday, the crew announced that the game would be coming to Xbox One and PS4 sometime this winter.  The Roosterteeth Games team will be working with Panic Button Games, who brought Rocket League to Xbox One, to bring the games to life on console.

The current game for PC will be getting a $5 DLC that unlocks team JNPR (Jaune, Nora, Pyrrha, and Ren), and each character will have a skill that no other character in the game will have.  You will be able to upgrade Pyrrha’s counterattacks to string combos and Jaune will be able to buff his teammates to improve their performance.

The free DLC will include a Horde Mode, that is “stupid hard” according to RWBY writer Miles Luna.  In this mode you are fighting waves of enemies called Grimm.  By doing this you collect points and upgrade weapons to protect your bases.  You can check out the whole interview from the NYCC RWBY panel below.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
