Is Rust coming to Xbox One?

Xbox One


Another open world survival title that could be coming to Xbox One is Rust. Rust is a survival game created by Facepunch Studios. Inspired by games like DayZ, Minecraft and Stalker the aim of the game is to survive by gathering resources.

The basics (Taken from the official website):

  • Hitting a tree with a rock will give you wood, hitting a rock with a rock will give you rock and ore. You can then craft a hatchet from the wood and rock, allowing you to gather faster. You can go out and hunt a variety of wildlife such as boars, chickens, rabbits, bears, wolves and deer. Once you have killed an animal you can butcher it to gather its meat and skin. You can craft a fire using wood and cook the meat inside the fire. Then you can eat.
  • Rust is a multiplayer game, so there will be other players trying to survive in the same way that you are. Unfortunately for you they can find you, kill you and take your stuff. Fortunately for you – you can kill them and take their stuff. Or maybe you can make friends and help each other survive. Rust’s world is harsh – so you might need to make friends to survive.
  • The environment is not kind. Bears and wolves will chase and kill you. Falling from a height will kill you. Being exposed to radiation for an extended period will kill you. Starving will kill you. Being cold will kill you.

Sounds intriguing, right? Well just before the weekend began and we all rushed home from the office to play the Titanfall BETA, Garry Newman posted on the Facepunch Studios Blog that they now have devkits for the Xbox One… and PS4.

We recently got some devkits. I want to explain where we are with consoles.. because there’s been a lot of speculation on the forums and on twitter. So with Rust, we are planning to port it to consoles. We haven’t started that process yet. We’re not planning anything until we’ve tried to get it running on one of the consoles and know what problems we’re going to face. It’s important to emphasise here that we’re porting TO consoles. We’re not making a dumbed down console version and then porting it back to the PC. So might happen, might not. Depends on a bunch of stuff. Either way neither the PS4 or XBone have any kind of early access program as far as I know, so it will be a while away.

He went on to promise fans that the PC version was still the studios main focus and any port to consoles that might follow wouldn’t receive any exclusivity etc. That’s fine by me, always happy to receive more titles, especially survival based online titles on the Xbox One.  We’ll keep you up to date as more news comes in over the coming months.

    This would be so awesome. I watch many YouTubers play this game but my PC is not able to run the game. Would love to have it on my Xbox One.

  • Me too Zippity. I am hoping we’ll see a number of PC only titles make their way onto the X1 over the coming 12-18 months. I miss my gaming PC. 🙁

  • Chris

  • molon_labe

    This game is amazing, but I don’t have the computer to play and can only enjoy it when i hang with my brother. If it was on Xbox one, shut up and take my money.

  • Jean

    I really want to see this game on Xbox One and Ps4 in 2017. I hope to see more news, before 2017, this game is looking likes a must have for me on console!!

  • IWas ForceFed

    I may be wrong but doesn’t Xbox One have an early access program? Ark Survival Evolved has been in early access for months on that console.

  • Brandon Flores

    i honestly think that they should bring it to xbox one because we dont have many open world games that we always got for free to download every time sighed. We still do but, if you guys agree say I and let the fans and decide if we would want Rust and most but not least H1Z1. H1Z1 is a survival game just like Ark the dinosaur game but, H1Z1 is a pvp and zombie apocalypse game that when and if u die u have to kill others to get loot or find them anywhere you can find them.

  • kieran

    well xbox 1

  • CyborgGuy

    Why did this stop, I really want to know what’s going on with it

  • Chris Burke

    Rust is an amazing game. It takes time skill patients and a sense of humer. Everyone literally even your best friends are out to get you. Maybe not right away but at some point he/she thought about blowing your head off from behind and robing that beautiful rifle. The building is fairly easy to get the hang of. The guns in official servers are a little difficult to come by. It is a very time demanding game reason being when your offline people are more likely to raid you. Its easy to offline someone whereas online raids req a fuck ton of resources if the defenders know what there doing. I can’t wait for this title to come to console for a whole new group of newbs.
