RWBY: Grimm Eclipse - Foxygen_Prime
Hey Huntresses and Huntsmen! The end of 2018 was a wild ride; we launched Bendy and the Ink Machine to console, hit some major game development milestones on our unannounced project, and have been laying the ground work for a whole slough of new community projects and focused content (our new Community Discord, Community Beta site, weekly streams, weekly community game nights, Office Hours, watch parties, etc!) Interested in joining the new Discord? Jump into the conversation HERE at the Official RT Games Discord: https://discord.gg/kf2BfjX

As for the new RWBY: Grimm Eclipse update, we ran into a few snags with compatability issues between the older version of Unity that was used to create the game and the version used in the outset to create the new DLC (which caused some bugs, ie the dark screen that was patched when the Unity version was rolled back.) This created a few additional complications with our port and a lot of work for our dev team and third party partners on top of trying to balance this against our other projects. We are happy to tell you the new content should be available to consoles this upcoming month! Once we flip the switch on PS4 and Xbox One, we will also be rolling out the new game mode on all three platforms!

It's been a wild ride and lots of learning, juggling priorities and growth for our team. We are SO excited to FINALLY put this in your hands and are very grateful to everyone who has shown as so much patience, understanding, and support.

Please watch Twitter and the Community Discord for the fastest way to receive updates and news! We hope the new year treats you well and is filled with wonderful games and gaming experiences.

Thanks again, and we'll see you back on Remnant in no time!!!

Hello fellow Huntresses and Hunters!

The new hot fix is out now. This patch fixes the issue on Windows where some monitors have darkened graphics when playing in fullscreen mode.

Thank you for your patience, and please report any new issues in the Bugs/Reporting thread.

Thank you and happy hunting!

Hello fellow Huntresses and Huntsmen! Gather around the campfire friends; we’re bringing the bacon back to Beacon and have got some exciting specifics to share about the new RWBY: Grimm Eclipse update and DLC!

First, we want to thank you for waiting on these updates so patiently. To know people want to see and experience more RWBY: Grimm Eclipse content is incredibly exciting for us. Nothing feels better than being able to control your favorite characters and see them come to life by the power of your own fingertips, and taking on hordes of Grimm in beautifully animated combat sequences is the closest thing to being in the world of Remnant yourself.

Speaking of Remnant, we’re opening up two more maps and opportunities to further explore the world of RWBY! We’re introducing Dr. Merlot’s Island and Dr. Merlot’s Laboratory as your new battlefield and proving grounds. Explore Beacon Academy’s titular adversary’s home base and take Grimm to task with your friends. This update is FREE to all players who own RWBY: Grimm Eclipse!

If you were lucky enough to attend RTX or RTX London, you’ve probably seen the next new piece of DLC content we’re rolling out: new character cosmetic packs! Take your favorite member of team RWBY or JNPR out of bed for a midnight snack and slay some Grimm along the way in your nighties. We’re introducing the Pajama Party Pack for $1.99 for each team! If you’re looking for something a little more battle-ready, then why don’t you check out team RWBY and team JNR’s Timeskip Costume Packs, $1.99 and $1.50 respectively (Pyrrha: rest in peace.) Jump ahead after season 3, and take some fresh new threads with you.

Enjoy 50% off RWBY: Grimm Eclipse and our Halloween Sale on Steam from October 18 - October 31! What a great way to introduce new friends to RWBY: Grimm Eclipse while you show off your new cosmetics.

This exciting new DLC is ready for you October 18, 2018 on Steam and on console late 2018. We’ll have even more new content ready then, so stay tuned!

Happy hunting, and we’ll see you in Remnant! Don’t forget to catch the premiere of RWBY, season 6 with us October 27 on www.RoosterTeeth.com!

Hellooo team,

It's been far too long, fellow hunters. A lot has changed around Rooster Teeth Games since last we spoke. Our development team has more than doubled, we have a publishing branch (Bendy and the Ink Machine), and, more specific to this post, we brought on a focused community manager! I’ve been given the opportunity to move over to lead the charge on all of our board game efforts (Million Dollars, But..., Achievement Hunter HEIST). Your ol’ pal Skilltacular will still be around, lurking in the forums occasionally dropping hints about the unfound easter egg. I’ve truly enjoyed chatting with you all off and on for the past 3+ years. It’s been a good ride so far and it’s only getting better!

Please join me in welcoming our new teammate and the new voice of RTG, Cricket!

Hello Rooster Teeth Community! My name is Cricket, and I’m the new RTGames Community Manager. I’m so thrilled to be joining the amazing community management team and, most importantly, getting a chance to serve you.

I remember seven years ago sitting at home in Alaska at -52 degrees fahrenheit listening to the RT Podcast and deciding on the fly to move to Austin. Never could I imagine that a year and a half later I would find myself in Austin- working toward my dream of working at Rooster Teeth. And today here I am.

First, I’d like to let you know a little bit about myself. Growing up as an Army Brat, I spent a lot of time traveling growing up and living in the European Union and United States. Eventually, my parents settled in Alaska, which is where I spent most of my teenage and young adult years. Like many people who grew up in northern climates, I love playing winter sports and winter activities: ice hockey, skiing, snowmachining, snowshoeing, and geocaching. I love live music, film, and most importantly- I love gaming.

Gaming communities really have been my home for as long as I can remember. No matter how many times I have had to pick up and start a new life in a new city or country, the memories I have created and friendships forged in online communities has been the single most important constant in my life. Gaming has helped me transcend language barriers and make friends in unlikely situations, like the time I spent playing Final Fantasy VIII with Italian-only speaking kids at a dinner party- and the time I met one of my best friends on Reddit while looking for a roommates to live with here in town. Gaming has also spared me from spending many cold winter days and nights alone. No matter where I go, my love of games has given me a sense of belonging and community.

Before coming on board here with Rooster Teeth, I spent several years working in games and social media community spaces with over 35 independent contracts on the books, managing everything from communities to events and digital marketing for indie, VR/AR, and AAA games. I’ve worked with special interest groups to promote diversity and workforce development in games and participated in dozens of online gaming communities ranging from flourishing MMOs to obscure indie puzzle games. I’ve built and managed social platforms for hundreds of small businesses across the Americas. Now I have a chance to work with some of the best community leaders in online and gaming spaces, and I can’t even begin to tell you what a privilege that is.

My commitment to you is to champion the community voice and help lift up your ideas, perspectives, and aspirations. I’ll do my part to promote a space that is inclusive, welcoming, respectful, and fun. I’m so excited to get to know all of you more, and I hope you’ll join me for community game nights (in person and online), to learn about our future gaming projects as they grow, and most importantly: to share our mutual love of gaming in all of its wonderful forms!

Hit me with your personal pronouns, meme dreams, and headshots. Hit me with your shared love of Rooster Teeth and gaming. Hit me up when your questions, ideas, and personal stories about how gaming has impacted your life. RTGames has a lot of work ahead of us, and I’m excited to bring you with us on the ride.

Let’s do cool shit together,
Cricket

Hello Team

It’s been a little while since our last update, but it’s great to see so many folks still active in the forums and itching for news. This is a short update, but it’s an important day for RWBY:GE, so we wanted to pop in and say hello.

July 5th 2016: Never Forget
Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the release of RWBY: Grimm Eclipse. To celebrate the anniversary and to say thank you to our amazing community, we have a small announcement - we’ll be releasing Steam Trading Cards, Backgrounds, and Emoticons! These have been requested many times before and many times we said “we’d love to...someday.” Well, check your calendars, because ‘someday’ is soon! Actually, “soon” is when they get approved by Steam (so, legit soon).

Jordan Scott’s Arbiter
Kickstarter Link
As many of you know, Grimm Eclipse was born from a fan project of the same name by the extremely talented Jordan Scott. Since his time with Rooster Teeth, Jordan has been busy on a project of his own, Arbiter. Jordan’s new game is currently live on Kickstarter. Swing by the campaign to support and share his awesome new project. He’ll even be demoing at RTX in Booth 646!

RTX Austin 2017
Schedule Link
If you’re coming to RTX this weekend, be sure to say hello. We all love this time of year when we get to meet the fine folks on the other side of our PC monitors (you). This year, some of the members of RT Games are hosting panels.
  • Friday: Jeff’s “Gaming Year in Review”: Game developers and game players have a friendly (maybe) debate about some of the biggest gaming news of the past year.
    5:00PM @ ACC-MR6
  • Saturday: Brian’s “What to Expect When You’re Expecting (to graduate)”: A panel of creatives talk about going to school, getting their foot in the door, and drop a little advice for the next gen of game/ art/ film makers.
    10:00AM @ ACC-MR6
  • Sunday: Casey’s “How to Start a Game Company”: Come listen to several folks who have been there and done that when it comes to starting their own companies.
    3:30PM @ ACC-MR6


Happy hunting, team!

Hello again team,

Whew! Long time no chat. Things aren't quite done with the console versions of RWBY: Grimm Eclipse, but that's what we've been up to these past few months. If you have the chance to either go through console submission or eat jalapenos every meal for a week, might I recommend the peppers?

We could dive more into the details of the past few months, but we know why you're here, to hear about what's next with RWBY: Grimm Eclipse.

Many of you have noticed a video that was recently posted to RoosterTeeth.com. In the video, you'll see the voices of team RWBY playing AS team RWBY! At a few points, you can see what we've been working on: NEW COSTUME PACKS!
Check out the video for yourself!
