What is Rust?
Rust is a multiplayer-only survival video game that was both developed and published in February of 2018 by a British independent developer and video game publisher Facepunch Studios. The game's concept originated from a mod for another popular video game, ARMA 2 called DayZ, and features the elements of crafting games such as Minecraft, and more recently Obsidian's Grounded. The core mechanics of the game revolve around managing players' needs like hunger and thirst as well as health, creating bases, and fighting off various types of enemies. Among them are the AI humans that will attack the players on occasion, wild animals such as bears and wolves, as well as other, well-equipt and well-armed player-controlled characters that will be trying to eliminate you and steal your hard-earned supplies. The game is available on multiple different platforms among which are included PC Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux.
