Rust (PC) is an online, open-world survival game with strong focus on crafting and player interaction. You wake up naked in an unfamiliar place with little to your name but a torch and a rock you can try to fruitlessly defend yourself, mine resources, and start making the best of your new situation.What will happen to you? Or more accurately, what will you allow to happen? Hunters become prey and vice versa in an ongoing struggle to survive in an environment determined to kill you.
Rust does not pull any punches. You start out with nothing, and if you don’t play your cards right from the very beginning, soon you’ll find yourself dead and respawned without anything you may have gathered. But play wisely and soon you’ll control your respawn points, have a safe stash for tools and resources, and in time, a personal fortress to protect your unconscious avatar when you are out roaming the real world.Do you have what it takes to carve out a piece of Rust for yourself?
Rust has several dozen crafting recipes for you discover. From basic survival utilities, like campfires and hatchets, to high-end weapons and armor giving a definitive edge over less-proficient players.Team up with friends and together work on projects that would overwhelm any lone wolf. The best things you can make are too hard for any lone wolf to complete them before the someone takes your resources by force. Create fortresses of wood and metal, and claim land as your own.

Whether you fight against the wildlife with a measly spear, hold other player at gunpoint, or set explosives under a metal fortress of your sworn enemy to rob and pillage, Rust thrives on conflict and uncertainty.Wherever you go, Rust gameplay keeps you on your toes and never lets you think you are the biggest fish in the pond.
