And it runs surprisingly well!
Given how Rust was originally meant to be played with a keyboard and mouse, it’s quite impressive to see Double Eleven make a seamless jump to controllers. Load times after dying aren’t that great, but there doesn’t seem to be any significant frame dropping in the video. It will be interesting to see how the actual game handles a higher number of players than what’s shown in the demo.
Before you make fun of how often the player died, Double Eleven wants to make sure you know that it was absolutely intentional. Double Eleven notes: “We wanted to be sure you would be able to see a good variety of different weapons and armour sets being used and how they behave in Rust Console Edition.”
This version of Rust doesn’t have an exact release date just yet, but Double Eleven confirmed it’s coming in in Spring 2020. Though an Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 version hasn’t been officially confirmed, we can expect it to be backwards-compatible. In the meantime, you can always head out into the wasteland and survive on your own on PC.
