PC survival game Rust making the jump to consoles

Survive, at all costs. Double Eleven’s open-world title Rust is coming to consoles this year, landing on the Xbox One and PS4 this spring.

Not too rusty

If you’re not familiar (and I’m really not, so I had to do some reading), Rust is an open-world survival game. It’s an incredibly popular open-world survival game, that’s still rocking on the PC. And thanks to publisher/developer Double Eleven, it’ll soon be doing the same on consoles.

In Rust, there is one goal above everything else: survive. 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. A game without rules, Rust doesn’t tell its inhabitants what to do. Players are free to be deceptive and aggressive with intense player vs. player combat, raiding and looting, but there is potentially even more to be earned with a team of friendly players by your side. 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.

Double Eleven

Billed as the “ultimate competitive survival experience on console”, the console version of Rust promises 100-player online games. It also promises much of what the PC edition offers in terms of gameplay, which means a tough and unforgiving experience. Apparently, Rust players are quite the cutthroat crew, and all you get to start out is a rock and a torch. So, yeah.

Rust on the Xbox One and PS4 has no release date just yet, but you can expect to see it wash up on the console-shores some time this spring.
