Rooster Teeth has officially launched a new free-to-play digital card game on the Play Store that's unimaginatively titled RWBY Deckbuilding Game. It's designed around the six-season strong supernatural anime series RWBY. This is a release described as a "new breed of digital card game," and it actually contains a few unique elements that separates it from the competition, such as building your decks during battle, co-op raids, and a lack of booster packs that allows each expansion to offer a complete experience.
RWBY Deckbuilding Game is clearly a digital card game, and it takes place in RWBY's futuristic fantasy world Remnant. Fans of the web series will be able to battle with many of their favorite characters, such as Ruby, Weiss, Blake, Yang, Jaune, Nora, Pyrrha, and Ren. The goal of the game is to upgrade your decks for victory by purchasing cards during each battle from a shared pool. By taking advantage of the powerful synergies created with those cards you'll have a better probability of toppling your opponents and defeating the game's many bosses.
If you're into free-to-play digital card games that contain a clear anime theme, then you're probably going to enjoy Rooster Teeth's latest release. It offers some interesting mechanics with the way you build your decks in battle, and it's also nice to know players won't be nickel and dimed for new cards since there are no booster packs included in the title. So while RWBY Deckbuilding Game may first appear to be yet another digital card game with a popular brand slapped on top, it actually offers something a little different that fans of the genre may appreciate.
