Join forces to take on fierce villains and slay monstrous Grimm!

Be Ruby Rose and rise to victory with her Crescent Rose; slice and dice the Grimm as Weiss Schnee, wielding her Myrtenaster; join in and fire from afar as Blake Belladonna with her Gambol Shroud; or leap in and create massive explosions as Yang Xiao Long with her Ember Celica.

RWBY: Combat Ready is an exciting cooperative game for 2-5 players that captures the flavor and excitement of the series, with fast-paced battles where all players are actively involved and engaged at the same time.

Players play as one of the four main heroines in team RWBY: Ruby, Weiss, Blake, Yang, or as Penny Polendina! Each player has their own separate deck of cards representing their attacks, actions, and moves. Each character plays a little differently, using their own unique tactics and strategies.

Battles are fought in a series of duels against a particular villain, with objectives, and sometimes special rules. No two battles are ever the same! During each duel, one player is the Active Player fighting the villain, with the action focused on that player.

The Active Player chooses and plays an attack from their hand. The player has a hint of what the Villain is going to do based on the stance shown on the Villain’s card –Subtle cards tend to have lower Speed, Balanced cards are mid-ranged, and Aggressive cards have higher Speed attacks!

After the Active Player chooses a card each of the other players will choose their actions. The other players can support the Active Player, by performing powerful combos against the Villain, or by assisting the Active Player with special abilities.

Alternatively, the other players can tackle some of the scenario objectives –like attacking the Grimm, taking out snipers, or finding Zwei! Teamwork is necessary! Players will collaborate while making these choices and work together to defeat the Villain!

After all players have decided upon their course of action, the villain’s card is revealed and the attack is resolved. Each attack has a speed in its upper left corner. The two attacks’ speed values are compared, with the faster attack hitting and inflicting its damage on the opposing character. If the speeds are tied, the round ends in a draw.

The Duel continues with the Active Player fighting head-to-head against the Villain, until the duel is ended by the Villain reaching the end of the Fury track, the Active Player running out of cards, or until one of the combatants is bashed!
