Last week it was announced that the popular sandbox survival game, Rust, will be making its way to consoles. later this year Today, we have finally received a release date for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports –or at least a release window.

Rust Console Edition

Rust: Console Edition is set to launch this spring following a closed beta this month. The beta is current ongoing and will be for the next few weeks, so the game’s launch might not be too long after that. That being said, the press release does use the phrase “when the game hits in a few months”, so it might be a little bit further out then that.

According to the press release, the console edition will allow up to 100 players to get the “ultimate competitive survival experience”. 

“Waking up on a mysterious post-apocalyptic island littered with dilapidated industrial monuments and probing scientists, it’s up to you to figure out how to keep yourself alive in a world where everything wants you dead.”

The console edition of the will is being developed and published by Double Eleven, independent from the PC developer, Facepunch Studios. Double Eleven is a British video game developer and publisher, having previously worked on titles like Crackdown 3, Lego Harry Potter, and Goat Simulator. They are also currently working on Minecraft Dungeons and Prison Architect, alongside Rust Console Edition.

Here is the description for the game:

“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.”
