RWBY: Grimm Eclipse Launches For Consoles Jan. 17

RWBY: Grimm Eclipse has been on Steam for quite a while, but it is now com­ing to con­soles on Jan­u­ary 17. 

The news comes straight from the Roost­er­teeth twit­ter account. They also released a con­sole launch trail­er that shows off the hack and slash game­play along with many of the environments. 

The game has been con­firmed as dig­i­tal down­load only and will not be avail­able for pre-order. A price has yet to be giv­en how­ev­er it will like­ly be $19.99, the same price as the Steam release. 

RWBY: Grimm Eclipse let’s play­ers take con­trol of the char­ac­ters from the ani­mat­ed web series of the same name. Up to four peo­ple can play togeth­er through a sto­ry cam­paign or a horde mode. Com­bat is described as fast paced like the Dynasty War­riors series with “team play ele­ments from Left 4 Dead”. The sto­ry is entire­ly new and takes place between sea­sons 2 and 3 of the show.

On Steam the game has received most­ly pos­i­tive reviews over­all.  Most of the pos­i­tive reviews high­light the abil­i­ty to play with friends, the sim­ple yet fun com­bat and casu­al friend­ly game­play. Despite the pos­i­tive reviews, the most help­ful reviews in the past 30 days are most­ly neg­a­tive. These reviews most­ly high­light how repet­i­tive the com­bat and ene­mies are, the short cam­paign and lack­lus­ter story.

 Of course you can find out your­self whether you like the game when RWBY: Grimm Eclipse launch­es Jan­u­ary 17 on PlaySta­tion 4 and Xbox One.
