What Is Rust?

Originally conceived as a DayZ clone, Rust is an action-adventure game with a heavy emphasis on survival. Players are placed out in the wilderness and must fend for themselves, managing factors such as thirst, hunger, and health. Supplies can be obtained or stolen to give you a fighting chance, and there’s also the perennial threat of bears, wolves, and there hostile wildlife to contend with, while combat features firearms and primitive melee weapons.

Crafting is also a major component in Rust, and players can increase their chances of survival by constructing bases and joining clans. Locations are largely procedurally generated, although there’s a pre-built map available in the shape of Hapis Island. Raiding is an integral part of the game too, coughing up valuable opportunities to loot essential supplies.

Rust was released in Early Access back in 2013 and left the program in February last year. The game is currently available on PC and MacOS, and has sold over five million copies worldwide.
