Rust makes better use of voice chat than any game I've ever played. You are naked and alone on the world's silliest island. There is no narrator or announcer, so instead you submerge in the quietude of the unkempt grass crunching beneath your feet, as you uselessly smash your rock against the nearest pine tree. Perhaps you've also harvested some mushrooms and a few bundles of flax; enough to stave off the hunger pangs and fashion yourself a burlap shawl to cover your shame. If you're particularly industrious, you'll have furnished a nice wooden shack a stone's throw away from some fresh water and reliable resources—the entry-level homestead necessary for any successful Rust campaign. But then you hear it. Faintly at first. Carried on the tip of the breeze. It's another idiot in Rust. I don't know what it is with this game. Maybe it's the fact that you spawn unclothed and uncensored, maybe it's the brutal vastness of the design, or maybe it's ...

Here, have some arms . I ve been alive for about 2 minutes, and the first player I ve met in Rust has just chucked a pair of severed human arms at my feet. I found them on a corpse just over there. I…may have killed him. But then I wasn t hungry, so you can have them. Here s some animal fat too. Rust is a strange game. (more…)

Multiplayer survival game Rust has finally left Early Access, increasing its price from $20 to $35 and tweaking its update schedule from weekly to monthly to ensure changes are properly thought through. There's now a testing branch, too, for those that want to trial new features before they make it into the game. And you can still expect a lot of new additions: creator Garry Newman said last month that the transition from Early Access to full release "was more like leaving Prototyping and entering Alpha". The biggest change to accompany that transition is a graphics refresh. Environment artist Vincent Mayeur wrote in a blog post that he has rethought the visuals "from the ground up, combing over almost every aspect of the game, striving for consistency". He said that visual consistency had been eroded throughout development because of the need for constant changes, many of which didn't match up, so he's "undoing what it has become and starting afresh". In pra...

…but not till early next week. As Early Access ended, there was a server wipe yesterday evening so I’m going to play a bit more now that I can build up my blueprint collection and base knowing that everything isn’t going to be snatched away from me. Rust‘s world of multiplayer survival can be harsh at the best of times, so it’s only fair that I find out if the promise of actual progress can lessen my sorrow. (more…)

The nasty, brutish and (often) short survival game Rust has finally crept out of its early access cave today and is sauntering around firing shotgun shells of joy into the sky and also into bodies of people it doesn t know and doesn t trust. That s a simplistic reduction of a five-year process which has seen this Prometheus of the survival genre go from being a janky axe-flailer to a more polished gunslinger. How can we possibly chart all the small changes that shaped this game s development? I know! By looking at its patch notes without context. (more…)

In Rust, everything comes from a single rock. From rifles to radiation suits, it s all thanks to a naked caveman hitting things with a big stone. Today, if you were to examine a family tree of the survival genre, you d see Subnautica and No Man’s Sky sitting on the same level. Distant cousins who can t stand to be in the same room as each other. Whether they like it or not, Rust is their common ancestor, their rock. Of course, you can trace Rust s lineage back further into DayZ, Minecraft and eternity. I just wanted a flowery intro metaphor so you d come and read an interview with its chief creator. Today, Rust leaves early access. So we spoke to Garry Newman, head of Facepunch, about survival, Plunkbat and whether leaving early access even means anything anymore. (more…)

After four years of nude murders, multiplayer survival sandbox Rust will be declared done enough to leave early access on February 8th. Development will still continue, mind, with future plans including improving farming, adding vehicles from cars to hot air balloons, radios, surrendering, and oh so much more. However, the game has settled into form enough over its time in early access that Facepunch Studios are now happy removing that label and bumping the price. (more…)

Rust, Facepunch Studios' famously nude survival game, is leaving Early Access on February 8th, after four years in development. The announcement was made in a blog post by Rust designer Garry Newman, which detailed what, exactly, the game's transition from Early Access to its version 1.0 release will mean. And that can probably be summarised as 'not all that much, beyond a price increase'. "We're not planning any big reveals, launch parties, around the world tours or cash prize giveaways for this event. We're not going to move staff onto other projects", explained Newman, "It's very much going to happen without much fuss. It's business as usual." Read more…

The multiplayer survival game Rust debuted on Steam in December 2013. Now here we are in 2018, and wow, it's still there. Not for much longer, however, because believe it or not creator Garry Newman announced today that it will go into full release on February 8. Predictably, Newman said that development will continue after the 1.0 release, but the update schedule will change from weekly to monthly, to help reduce the likelihood of "rushing in features and fixes that end up breaking something else." For those who prefer to live dangerously, a "Staging Branch" of the game with daily updates will exist alongside the stable main branch. It's basically a PTR—Public Test Rust, if you like—that never goes away. "You can have both versions installed at the same time, so our hope is that we'll get one or two servers on the staging version that are populated all the time and help test the updates that are coming to Main at the end of the month,&qu...
