| Rust is an open world MMO zombie survival game designed by Facepunch Studios. It takes inspiration from games like DayZ, Minecraft, and STALKER. To survive in Rust you may choose to work together with friends and strangers, scavenging for supplies and building giant bases, or go at it alone, killing other players for loot. Rust aims at being a game that gives players the freedom to play the way that they want, and that doesn't involve a hero and bandit system. With Rust, you will have to use your instinct, not a humanity number, to figure out if you can trust people.|
Rust is running on Unity. When you first load Rust you will have to download the Unity Web-Player. The developers are still deciding if the game will be Web-Player only, or if they will release a downloadable client. It looks like Rust will be running on the Web-Player for the Alpha phase of the game.
The game is currently in closed alpha.
This game is rapidly developing and I'm extremely excited for it! It's a mix between DayZ, Minecraft and STALKER and is currently in a closed alpha state. That means it's currently impossible to play the game, but I expect this to change very soon. I'd love to team up with some of you when the game hits Alpha, but in the mean time there's plenty of videos on youtube and plenty of people streaming on twitch for you to watch!
