Rust tasks you with staying alive in a dangerous open world. You will need to find resources, collect food, and build shelters. Up to 100 players can be on the same server, and how you interact with them (or avoid them) is up to you. The PC version has exploded over the past few months after some popular Twitch streamers started playing it. Rust had an average Number of Steam players nearly 118,000 at any given time in February.
The Rust Console editions will be a different experience than the PC version with a distinct roadmap. Double Eleven plans to regularly update the PS4 and Xbox One ports with its own improvements, as well as content from original developer Facepunch. The will be cross-play support for console versions, but you will not be able to access the same server as the PC players.
Get Rust running decently on consoles took a lot of work, according to Double eleven. He noted that the early PS4 and Xbox One units had processors equivalent to a 2013 MacBook Pro, which is a far cry from what you would need to run the PC version of. Rust.
When testing the console for the first time, it took up to 45 minutes to load the game’s huge map. Double Eleven managed to cut the load time down to about a minute, thankfully. Hoping Rust will trigger even faster on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
Pre-orders are now open for the Rust console editions. The standard version costs $ 50 and includes a pre-order bonus pack with weapons and tools. The $ 70 Deluxe Edition includes early access and closed beta entry, and a few other goodies. Go for the Ultimate Edition for $ 80 and you’ll get all the benefits of the other versions, along with 1,100 Rust Coins and a special skin pack.
