Rust, the competitive multiplayer survival game, will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Spring. A closed beta has been going on for a little while now and will run through the next few weeks. Today's announcement of a release date is accompanied by a new trailer from Double Eleven. This release is not being handled directly by the game's original developer, Facepunch Studios.

The console release of Rust will retain the same sort of player counts seen on the PC release. That means that up to 100 players will be able to survive on one server.

Rust has been available through Steam, originally on Early Access, since 2013. It has, somehow, become one of Steam's most played games in all of that time. Players are able to loot and craft gear and weapons to use against their foes.

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.

Rust is not for the faint of heart: the game boasts a steep learning curve and a huge, killer community of players. Befriend them, kill them – the choice is yours. Players will start out alone with nothing but a rock and a torch, finding and learning blueprints to make new and higher-tier weapons, armour and defenses, building a growing arsenal to give you and your friends chances of survival. Rust will throw a barrage of challenges at you but players can fight back with craftable weapons starting with a rock in your hands, to a spear or bow, through to heavier artillery like assault rifles and rocket launchers.
