Now, streamers have resurrected the game on Twitch, and Rust has become a surprise breakout hit of 2021. Continue scrolling to keep readingClick the button below to start this article in quick view.
Employees from both the developer and publisher Double Eleven have been working from home, and adjusting to the obstacles that come from doing so, which is why Rust didn't hit its original 2020 release date. The survival game is simply delayed, and development seems to be making steady progress.
Even with the obstacles faced by Double Eleven and Face punch Studios, though, it appears that Rust will be releasing on Xbox consoles fairly soon. The PC version of Rust continues to get regular updates, which indicates the studio is still developing content at a steady rate.
Thankfully, the survival game is already available on PC, and Xbox users have some great alternatives to play while they wait. 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.
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. In April 2020, a closed beta for Rust appeared on the Xbox One store, though this was later confirmed by Garry Newman to be for internal testing only.

Face punch's survival game launched out of Early Access nearly three years ago on PC, but failed to impress at the time according to GameS pot's 3/10 Rust review. A big patch for Rust also recently launched, and the game now had Twitch drops for those watching it.
The popular survival simulator, which has been actively developing on the PC for 7 years, was supposed to be released on consoles in 2020. Recall that the Rust game reached its full release on PC only in February 2018, before that the project had been in early access for many years.
Rust is a multiplayer-only survival game that requires you to look for or steal resources to live as long as possible in the wilderness. You must manage your resources while maintaining your hunger, thirst, and health, while also dealing with any other humans you encounter, which will probably end in a fight.
Console players who have an interest in Rust will be happy to know that the game is set to come to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2020. Following the announcement, Face punch chief Garry Newman was interviewed on the PlayStation Blog about the development of the upcoming port.
After four years, Rust finally left Steam’s early access program last week, rewarding those players who helped during the development process with Frog Boots and offering a more polished experience than we’ve previously seen. Though Rust is far from being 100% completed, some fans may be wondering if there’s any word on an Xbox One release date now that the PC version is officially out of its early access phase.
Survival game Rust has res urged in popularity on Twitch, leading gamers to wonder if it offers cross-platform play between PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. Online survival game Rust was first released in early access in 2013 but it has seen a resurgence of popularity on Twitch thanks to a group of celebrity streamers who have flocked back to its servers.
Unfortunately, plans for that major addition to the title were pushed back to an unspecified date in 2021 due to the workflow interruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Face punch keeps the survival title interesting by throwing new crafting blueprints and items into the fray, which players can slowly gather resources to construct and bolster their forts.
Face punch has never specifically mentioned that it would include cross-platform play but similar games have incorporated the feature in the past, which means the developer could try to do the same. However, one of Rust's biggest competitors, the zombie apocalypse survival game Day, doesn't support the feature, even though it's available on PlayStation, Xbox, and Windows systems.
The company teased that it will have more news about the console release of Rust sometime in 2021, so fans will need to wait for that upcoming announcement to learn anything concrete. The popular survival simulator, which has been actively developing on the PC for 7 years, was supposed to be released on consoles in 2020.
Recall that the Rust game reached its full release on PC only in February 2018, before that the project had been in early access for many years. Despite having released all the way back in 2013 through Early Access, the PC survival game Rust is enjoying a new lease on life recently after numerous streamers started playing it again.
This uptick in attention has led to a huge spike in sales and revenue, according to Garry Newman of developer Face punch. Newman revealed on Twitter that Face punch made more than $1 million in gross revenue on two different occasions this week on Steam.
Conquer thirst and hunger, battle the elements, create clothing and stay safe against hostile forces including other players, scientists, bears, wolves or even succumb to fire, drowning or radiation poisoning. In the struggle for survival and supremacy, players can build tiny cabins in the woods to huge scrap metal fortresses in an attempt to stay safe, as well as craft a variety of weapons, bombs and traps.
Studio Double Eleven has published a blog post detailing its work on the console release for multiplayer survival game Rust. “We love making great games and bringing them to new audiences, but that sometimes means taking a bit longer to get it right than we originally planned and comes at the unfortunate cost of the disappointment and trust of those who were so keen to play it upon launch,” says the blog post.
