Rust Console Edition was released in 2021 and costs around $49.99. Unfortunately, Facepunch Studios have a strict policy when it comes to pricing, so you’ll rarely get discounts from them. Even when you do, it will be something like 10%. So if you want to play the game, you’ll have to buy it for what it’s worth.
Rust is a survival game designed by Facepunch Studios. However, it’s not a typical survival game. Quite the opposite. In Rust, you get to experience the feeling that ancient humans and tribes must have experienced. The world is harsh, you can’t trust anyone, and death can come at any time, in any form.
Rust has Battle Royale features, such as the ability to steal a player’s loot after you’ve killed them. This means that killing is incentivized, and that’s a scary thing that pretty much removes all forms of trust outside of well-established groups.
If you’re not friends with the players outside the game, you’re not very likely to become friends with them inside the game. This is one of the fundamental principles of Rust: don’t trust anyone.
Playing Rust on Console
Rust is primarily a PC game but that doesn’t mean you can’t play it on console. Facepunch Studios have made it available for both PS4 and Xbox One. For both of these consoles, the experience is smooth and doesn’t differ all that much from the one on PC.
Rust Console Edition Double allows you to play the game on both of the consoles mentioned above. However, if you own a good PC, you should probably still play the PC version because this is a survival shooter game that will require you to aim well. What better device for that than a mouse?
The current PC version of Rust is the one that got released in February 2018. Since then, the game has been refined numerous times. And in its current form, it’s perfectly playable and full of challenges. But if you prefer PlayStation, go ahead!
It’s not a surprise that more than 1 million people still play this game to this day on the official servers, as well as custom servers, against other players who love to survive and find ways of finding weaknesses in other players’ strategies.
One of the fun parts of Rust is its skins, which you can find in abundance.
