Hit Survival Game Rust Lands on Consoles Next Year

Rust, the popular online survival game from Facepunch Studios, will be launching on Xbox One and PS4 next year.

Rust was originally released for PC via Steam Early Access way back in 2013, and has since become one of the most played games on the platform, with almost 8 million fans fighting for survival in its harsh and brutal open world.

Soon console players will be able to join the mayhem. The announcement was made at Microsoft’s X019 event yesterday that Rust will be available to players on Xbox One and PS4 at some point in 2020.


With survival your only goal, it’s up to you how you want to face the unforgiving world of Rust. Other players may want nothing more than to kill you and take your stuff. So go it alone or forge uneasy alliances, keep your word or betray your fellow players, the choice is yours.
