The entirety of the human race faced an imminent threat from the deadly monsters known as the Grimm. If it were not for the brave Huntsmen and Huntresses who stepped up to protect the humans, the Grimm would have long destroyed Remnant and taken over.
These warriors are in charge of ensuring that the Grimm and all other threats are timely neutralized to protect civilization. These warriors receive training and are put into teams at schools such as Beacon Academy. At Beacon Academy, Ruby meets Weiss and Blake and, along with her half-sister Yang, form team RWBY. Team RWBY is hard at work to ensure they become the best Huntresses the world of Remnant has ever witnessed. However, the young girls are soon made aware that a horrifying threat awaits them.

The trailer reimagines various scenes from RWBY Volume 1. However, what sets this version apart from the previous ones is that RWBY ICe Queendom will take its viewers on new adventures they have not previously seen.
