Summary

Plot

The game follows the story around Volume 3 and is set as an adventure involving the development of the ATS (Aura Training Simulator) and its carrier, the Saints, by the Schnee Dust Company and Kingdom of Atlas.

Atlas and the SDC were secretly developing the ATS, a large-scale technological instrument capable of simulating Aura battle environments, requiring large amounts of Dust to activate and maintain the ATS' operation. The ATS is located at the Saints, and it was near the north of Vale to participate in the Vytal Festival where four girls from the Saints participated in the battle against the Grimm.

Gameplay

Characters

Characters have no difference in rarity. Characters and skins can be directly purchased without the need for gashapon. Points gained from battling can also be used to buy the characters.

Combat System

Combat is accomplished using analog controls, and the screen moves like a 2D sidescroller. A movement wheel controls the 2D movement of the character while a separate skill wheel also provides shortcuts to use up to three items. Skills, which number up to three excluding normal attacks, have cooldowns, which are shown in percentages. Some skills appear to be able to chain together to create combos, and depending on the stats, damage from attacks can be critical.

The player name, avatar and health can be seen on the top left of the screen while boss HP and MP are shown on top of the screen; otherwise, enemies do not appear to have any indicators.

Map progress and drops are shown through markers on the top right of the screen.

Lootbox System

The lootbox system that is implemented in the game is unrelated to equipment, card draws or other unlockables.

Currencies

There are at least two currencies in the game: Remnant Points gained from battling are used to unlock characters and skins and Lien which are used to buy items.

Development

Bilibili announced that it obtained rights to develop a game using the RWBY IP during AGC 2015, on July 28th.[4] On September 22nd of the same year, Rooster Teeth staff also visited Bilibili, presumably for the game.[5]

On November 14th, 2017, the official Weibo account of the game entered the auditing stage and was verified as a result.[6]

On January 8th, 2018, the first PV for the game was released on Bilibili and Weibo.[7] The official website also opened up pre-registration for iOS and Android for Bilibili users.[8]

The RWBY game's project team consists of a development and operations team.

The first closed beta limited to 2000 participants for Android began on February 7th, 2018, and lasted until February 14th, 2018.[9]
