The only aim in Rust is to survive. To do this you will need to overcome struggles such as hunger, thirst and cold. Create alliances with other players and form a town.

Developer Face punch Studios and publisher Double Eleven have announced that the former's incredibly popular competitive multiplayer survival game, Rust, is coming to PS4 and Xbox One in 2020. Initially created as a clone for Day, with elements of Minecraft thrown in, Rust changed a lot during its time in Early Access.
At the moment of publishing -- beyond PS4 and Xbox One -- there's been no word of any additional ports, such as mobile, Nintendo Switch, or Google Stadia. Face punch and Double Eleven have today announced that the hugely popular online survival game Rust will be released on PlayStation 4 next year.
We found some time to speak to Face punch chief Garry Newman and pick his brain about Rust and what the announcement means for players. A dumb move and you can lose hours, days, weeks or progress.
Skirmishes happening miles away, animals going about their business, lots of unexplained stuff, radioactive areas of great interest. We’re also huge FPS players, so the obvious stuff like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike and Battlefield.
While it was in early access we felt we had a promise to fulfill for everyone that supported us, so PC was our main priority. We came out of early access in 2018, so at that point we felt we could start looking at the console version, but at the same time it isn’t something we wanted to rush out.
What are the key things you want to focus on when releasing a game like Rust on console? So the only thing we have to do to make Rust the best Console survival game is avoided tripping over ourselves in terms of controls and performance.
Rust ’s world doesn’t present you with an immediately obvious storyline, but the post-apocalyptic environment is littered with both American and Russian imagery and references– is there a hidden story there? We don’t share any of that directly because we want to avoid the Star Wars situation where we can’t do something without contradicting five-story things.
Every Rust player I’ve ever spoken to in real life has these stories. So he had this situation where he had to throw all his guns, clothes, and ammo one by one up in the air for his squad mate to catch and keep safe for him.
Rust is currently in a bit of a purple patch, having just recently had its most popular day in its history with a record amount of players, as well as featuring consistently in Steam’s top 10 most played. At its essence, Rust is a game about crafting yourself a sturdy base to protect it from other players’ raids and also collecting all the loot to do your best Smug impression.
There are survival elements, such as a need for food and water as well as dangerous wild animals to contend with, but Rust is all about taking on other players for their fortunes, whether alone or as part of a group. Developed by the minds behind Garry’s Mod, Rust began life as an eerily similar game to Day when the survival genre boom was really kicking off.
According to Garry Newman, Face punch head honcho, the studio are looking to avoid a lot of the mistakes that previous developers have made when porting their survival games to console. “…there’s a lot of rushed, short-sighted low frame rate survival games on console, and we didn’t want to be in that group.
This instantly brings the likes of Day to mind, which was an absolutely disastrous port that didn’t do the game itself justice, though its PC version is hardly a shining beacon of optimization, either. At a guess, we’d expect the graphical quality to be pared back and for things like draw distance to take a hit, as well as for the map sizes and max player counts per server to be limited a little.
This is because Rust is a CPU vampire and asks a lot of really powerful PCs as is, so with current generation consoles being a little under powered, they may need to cut some things down.

There will be no “big reveals, launch parties, around the world tours or cash prize giveaways for this event.” Staff will not be moving onto other projects, the game will simply release on February 8th. The developers have described this transition as the ‘prototype’ version of the game finally entering its ‘Alpha’.
Rust has been updated with animals, new draftable, and more, including female characters. When female characters were first added in 2016 the game’s three-year long sausage-fest came to an end, only to be met with drama.
Players spoke out about being forced to play as female characters at first, but the drama fell into obscurity over the last two years. The highly popular survival game is making its way to the PS4 after years of fans clamoring for it and much discussion over whether it would happen at all.
“So the only thing we have to do to make Rust the best Console survival game is avoided tripping over ourselves in terms of controls and performance. Supplies can be obtained or stolen to give you a fighting chance, and there’s also the perennial threat of bears, wolves, and there hostile wildlife to contend with, while combat features firearms and primitive melee weapons.
Crafting is also a major component in Rust, and players can increase their chances of survival by constructing bases and joining clans. Raiding is an integral part of the game too, coughing up valuable opportunities to loot essential supplies.
Rust was released in Early Access back in 2013 and left the program in February last year. The update is expected at the normal time (2pm EST / 7pm GMT) and will feature a full wipe along with some other goodies.
This is due to the addition of tech trees in December, but is also great timing given the recent influx of players (see below). This wipe means everyone on every server will have a completely fresh start after the update hits later today.
It’s awesome to see the game continue to thrive, and we offer a warm welcome to any newcomers. If you fall into this category, make sure to check out our guides section if you need any help with getting started.
Given the forced blueprint wipe today is due to the new progression system added last month, I thought it makes sense to give a quick recap on how tech tree’s work along with the most recent complete trees. If you’ve ever played a game with tech tree’s before, you’re not going to be surprised to hear this is a linear progression system allowing for the unlocking of various items down the chain.
That said, you cannot continue down a tech tree line unless every previous item has already been unlocked. Earlier this week, Face punch announced the update will be accompanied by a new round of Twitch drops.
If you’re not familiar, this means you’ll receive exclusive in-game items by watching people stream Rust on Twitch (for a certain duration). Edit: Information on the specific Twitch drops for this week have been released here.
Edit: The Sofa DN Hobo Barrel are two of the general Twitch drops going live today. Edit: This can be obtained by watching any Rust streamer this week for 2 hours.
Edit: This can be obtained by watching any Rust streamer this week for 8 hours. The team has added a small but useful quality of life shift around bag placement.
If on its own cool down, sleeping bag placement guides will continue to be blue. If they are close to another spawn point, however, the placement guides appear orange to signify the shared cool down.
The chance of weather events has now been reduced, forecasting much more clear days than previously experienced. Previously, if you needed to sync bans across multiple servers, you’d have to manually do it, custom code something, or use a 3rd party.
