Rust Console Edition Spotted With An ESRB Rating

Time to Get Rusty

In the Twitch-scape, everyone and their mothers are streaming Rust it seems. The game was released in early access in 2013, officially released in 2018, but its popularity has recently skyrocketed. Rust is often described as Minecraft meets DayZ, but clearly there is something about it that people are drawn to. Just as clear, this game has room in its audience to expand. That is why Facepunch Studios is serving up Rust Console Edition, which we have just seen rated on the ESRB’s website.

Rust Console Edition

Rust Console Edition has been given an M rating by the ESRB. Players of this game are very familiar with the reasons for this, like the violence, the weapons, the weapon creation, hunting, and the overall kill-or-be-killed atmosphere. They also mention the option players have to mutilated dead players and animals for resources, but it’s for survival, so that makes it all better. Though the game has seen its spike in popularity quite recently, Facepunch Studios have actually been planning a console release for Rust as early as 2019, so now is a good a time as any to push it through. The consoles that the ESRB has rated Rust for are PS4 and Xbox One.

Of course, this rating is just one step in a full console release, so hopefully we will get a more detailed announcement from Facepunch Studios about Rust Console Edition’s launch. Rust is available now on PC, and will hopefully be out on PS4 and Xbox One in a reasonable amount of time.
