Survivors, the first free content update for Rust Console Edition, Devastating destruction, is coming November 25! This exciting new update contains brand new mechanics such as tech trees, gestures, weapon handling settings, aim assist, and tons of quality of life improvements and bug fixes!
Tech trees are fundamentally changing the way players progress. Rust Console Edition… You no longer have to waste your scrap on a random tiered blueprint at the workbench – you can now unlock the items you need the most. Collect scrap from all over the map and build a workbench to gain access to the level 1 research tree. From here you can use scrap to open different branches of items depending on your play style. Do you prefer to build and strengthen your base? Unlock defenses and traps to put your foes to shame! Or do you prefer a more direct approach? Then unlock weapons and ammo to take out your competitors more effectively!
Each item has its own level, so you will need to collect more scrap and build a tiered workbench to unlock more items at the end of the game. You can always try your luck on the Bandit Camp spinning wheel looking for extra scrap, but remember, home always wins …
You will still be able to research items from the research table as before, so there are now multiple paths to progress. The goal of adding Tech Trees is to bring the game more in line with the core Rust experience by removing the random system we have had so far to unlock new blueprints. This will give everyone more variety in the way they play.
Devastation Unleashed also has an exciting Gestures feature that allows you to use different emotes using a radial menu to better express yourself in the game. Is someone too far away to be heard in voice chat? Wave to them … or something less friendly!
This update also includes new map seeds, bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and new skins to celebrate this update! We are working hard to make as many updates and improvements as possible to Rust Console Editionand this is just the first of many content updates. Hope you all enjoy it! See you at the beach, survivors.
