Rust - Xbox One & PS4 Release Date Announced

 In the fall of 2019, at the X019 exhibition, it was announced that Rust would be released on the console. And just recently British development studio Double Eleven announced the release date of the game - May 21. The release is scheduled for Xbox One and PS4.

Developers had to face an important optimization problem while reducing the minimum requirements to run Rust on consoles. Double 11 said and that now the number of the required amount of RAM has decreased from 10 GB required for the PC, up to 4.5 GB. For this achievement, most of the game had to be rewritten in the Unity engine and this led to the fact that the first launch of the game lasted a whole 45 minutes. But after a long work with optimization, the developers were able to reduce the time to 1 minute.

Rust - Introducing the Musical Instruments DLC

 The DLC will be installed on game servers on December 5, and its cost is $ 10. A developer blog on Twitter states that specifically for these instruments, the Facepunch Studios team has developed a unique system of playing notes to individual keys on the keyboard. In other words, you will be able to create your own tunes and not just listen to the options downloaded by the developers.

Those who don't want to pay $ 10 for an add-on will still be able to play the instruments. To do this, just kill the owner and remove him from the corpse, or ask a friend to craft something from the list.

Bloody and A4Tech mice weaned from Rust

 Many gamers prefer Bloody and A4Tech gaming mice, and their manufacturer lures consumers with a wide range of software functionality, which sometimes comes close to the border with cheats. The studio Facepunch Studios is also concerned about the situation, having decided to protect its extremely popular survival simulator Rust , which is preparing for release on consoles, from dubious users.

The developers suggest that they close the game, disconnect the Bloody or A4Tech mouse, connect any other and continue to fight for survival in Rust. And the whole point is to compensate for the recoil due to the built-in memory. Affected players are clearly not happy with this decision, some are demanding a reconsideration or a refund, while others just set about bombarding Rust with bad reviews on Steam.

The move is radical, but it makes sense, and the majority will most likely support the decision of the project team.

Rust - Own boat and trendy haircut - what more could you ask for

 Sandbox-survival Rust recently received a major update that brings Chinook, a new helicopter, forests, caves, PvE monuments and more to the game. However, perhaps the most interesting innovation was the motor boat. You can fit in with your friends and explore the area. Note that without fuel, your vessel will be useless, but from the shore, or from another boat, you can easily be shot. On the other hand, there is no more dangerous threat than an ally, and therefore do not sit in the same vehicle with unfamiliar or too familiar people. Enemies will not sink, so friends dig the bottom with a stick.

In addition, birches, oaks and beech trees grew in the forests, and the rest of the vegetation, including on the head, received small changes. Yes, yes, now you can get a fashionable hairstyle, of course, if random loves you, otherwise you will have to go bald, then unshaven in other interesting places. The developers also worked on the graphic component of the game, adding reflections in the water, anti-aliasing and more realistic shadows in the foliage of the trees.

Not without bug fixes, map detailing and other improvements. Along with all these changes, Rust has become, in a sense, unrecognizable. We hope that the developers will continue to delight their fans in the future.

Safe Zones added to Rust

 Recently, the developers of sandbox-survival Rust have released a new update , the main feature of which is “safe” zones. In them, users can get together without fear for their lives, use various useful equipment, such as resource exchangers, vending machines where you can buy simple clothes, and much more.

However, it is worth considering the fact that in such places there are strict rules, you are forbidden to use weapons, kill other players, and also sleep in the zone itself and its immediate vicinity. Users who break the law will become hostile for five minutes, and all NPCs will start attacking them using heavy weapons.

In the future, the developers plan to continue to develop the concept of peaceful zones so that they fully meet the requirements of the game.

Meet the release of the Rust project

 Sandbox-survival Rust has been in the early access zone for a long time . For several years, the British studio Facepunch, of which Harry Newman is the head, introduced all sorts of changes to the gameplay, corrected errors, rules of mechanics and optimized the project client.

But then it became known that the long-awaited release of Rust took place . The team did not forget to release the patch as well. New boots have been added - Frog Boots. Introduced new trees and tutorials. Improved the visual component of the game. And now 2 pieces of scrap metal fall out of loot barrels.

Therefore, if you want to evaluate this creation from Facepunch personally, then immediately be prepared for the fact that a crowd of naked characters with stones can attack you and take away all your property.

Rust goes out of early access

 The developers of survival-action Rust have announced that their project is finally leaving Steam Early Access. The full release will take place on February 8, 2018. This event will not be accompanied by loud announcements, events, holiday giveaways or anything else. But the team will not move to other projects, but will continue to develop Rust. The release version will receive stable updates once a month. A beta version of the game will also appear, in which all innovations and edits will be tested before going to the base.

The developers themselves say that a new stage for them is the transition from prototype development to alpha version. Early Access became a tool for them to experiment with the game, receiving feedback from the gaming community to determine the direction of further development. Initially, for example, there were zombies in the game, but it was decided to abandon them. Now the creators of Rust already know what they want to create, so they decided to announce the official release.

The cost of the game will almost double from $ 19.99 to $ 34.99. Prices for other regions will be announced at a later date.

Rust - How many players have requested a refund per game

 Since Steam gave you a refund for a game in which you played less than two hours, many players have been able to give up on rash and disappointing purchases. In the case of sandbox-survival Rust , the number of dissatisfied buyers turned out to be very impressive.

Game developer Garry Newman posted an interesting screenshot where you can see the total number of Rust returns, as well as the amount of compensation paid to players. As it turned out, about 330,000 players were unhappy with the project and returned over $ 4,300,000.

According to SteamSpyThere are over 5,500,000 users of Rust, but despite this, the developers had to pay a fairly large sum. The most common reason for refunds is “poor performance” and “boring”.

There are tens of thousands of refunds made on the Steam platform every day. This service is especially relevant now, during the summer sale. Indeed, in the last 24 hours alone, more than 220,000 players have been asked to return their money.

Your character's gender in RUST will be randomly determined

 A survival game called RUST , which is in Early Access status on Steam, has amazed players on more than one occasion. So, last year, RUST characters had masculinity, and its sizes varied depending on the Steam ID. Next, the developers decided to add a female character, but now it turned out that the gender of your character will be randomly determined, depending, again, on the Steam ID.

It happened after the last update and now it's not up to you to decide whether your character will be a man or a woman, everything will be decided by a great random, starting from the Steam ID. Many players, especially those using voice chat, are upset. However, in real life, we also do not choose who to be born, as well as the size ... of the merits.

“We would never go against you. However, in life, you also do not always have a choice. In addition, the male voice coming from the female character is no stranger than the voice of an eight-year-old boy from an adult character, ”the developers say.

“Rust is a multiplayer survival computer game developed by the independent British studio Facepunch, which previously created Garry's Mod. You have to collect resources, as well as kill animals and other players for the sake of the coveted loot (or just like that). The game features a fairly advanced crafting system. And you will have the opportunity to create houses, equipment, various furniture and much more. ”

Rust - The game has lost the character leveling system

 The new patch for sandbox-survival Rust brought noticeable changes to the mechanics and gameplay - the game lost the experience and leveling system.

The developers from the Facepunch studio explained their decision by the fact that this system removed from the game such elements as "constant new meetings and enjoyment of the game," focusing the players' attention more on the process and optimization of pumping. This made the game boring after the player reached the maximum level, which threatened to reduce the player base.

Instead of an experience system, players are now offered a new mechanic that allows players to create whatever they want from the very start of the game. This means that there will no longer be any items or blueprints locked behind the XP wall. However, rarer items will require various components for crafting, which must be independently searched for on the map and which cannot be obtained in any other way other than gathering.
