Devastation Will Be Unleashed Upon Rust Console Edition

Survivors, the first free content update for Rust Console Edition, Devastation Unleashed, is coming November 25! This exciting new update brings brand new mechanics like the tech tree, gestures, adjustments to the gun handling, aim assist, and a host of quality of life improvements and bug fixes!

The Tech Trees fundamentally change the way players progress in Rust Console Edition. No longer will you have to rely on spending your scrap on a random tiered blueprint at the workbench – you can now unlock the items you need the most. Collect scrap from around the map and construct a workbench in order to access the Tier 1 Tech Tree. From here, you can use scrap to unlock different branches of items depending on your playstyle. Do you prefer to build and fortify your base? Unlock defenses and traps to confound your enemies! Or do you prefer the more direct approach? Then unlock guns and ammo to eliminate your competition more efficiently!

Every item has its own tier, so you’ll need to collect more scrap and build a higher tiered workbench to unlock more end-game items. You can always try your luck on the Bandit Camp spinning wheel for some extra scrap, but don’t forget, the house always wins…

You will still be able to research items from the Research Table as you could before, so there are now multiple paths of progression. The aim of adding Tech Trees is to bring the game more in-line with the core Rust experience by removing the random system we had up until now to unlock new Blueprints. This will give everyone more variety over the ways they can play the game.

Also coming with Devastation Unleashed is the exciting ‘Gestures’ feature, which allows you to perform various emotes using the radial menu to better express yourself in game. Is someone too far away to hear in voice chat? Give them a wave… or something less friendly!

This update also includes new maps seeds, bug fixes, quality of life improvements and new skins to celebrate this update! We’re working hard to bring as many updates and improvements as we can to Rust Console Edition, and this is only the first of many content updates. Hope you all enjoy it! See you at the beach, survivors.

Devastation Unleashed will be available for Rust Console Edition on the November 25!

Rust Console Edition Tips and Tricks

The island of Rust Console Edition – available today on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S — is a harsh place. Literally everything here wants to kill you; the local wildlife, other players and even the island itself will try their best to eliminate you and take your things, so what can you do to get a head-start? Hopefully, these tips will help you get a foothold in this unforgiving survival sandbox.

Make a sleeping bag – This should be one of the first things you do – collect 30 cloth from the green h emp plants you see growing around the island and craft a sleeping bag. Place it in a location near where you want to build, and you can respawn back there – this makes it easier to not lose track of a good spot when you die. And you will die… a lot!



Explore the island before building – It might be tempting to start building straight away, but it’s always worth exploring the island before you decide to put down roots; to get a good look around and find out where other monuments and bases are located. You don’t want to build near a huge clan as a solo player!



Base location is important – Even if you’re part of a huge Zerg clan, building a massive base in the middle of an open field is bound to attract the wrong kind of attention. Look around and choose a decent location for your base. B uilding at the top of a hill will give you a high ground advantage or building a small stone base on a cliff side blends in well, or even having one wall of your base built against a rocky outcrop, so it’s impossible to raid from that direction is a good way to protect your possessions early on.



Lock your Tool Cupboard – Once you’ve built some form of base and placed your Tool Cupboard down so that no one can build near you and your base won’t decay, craft a basic lock and place it on your Tool Cupboard. Now, even if someone gets inside your base, they’ll have to waste extra resources breaking into the Tool Cupboard. This also applies to small and large storage crates; lock them up to frustrate your raiders!



Build an airlock – Even if you can only afford to build a small wooden 1×1 base, it is extremely important to stick an extra triangle foundation, walls, roof, and door on it. This means that even if someone kills you and your front door is open, the airlock and second door prevent them from getting into your base. Placed in such a way, you can also use the doors in the open position to block raiders or base campers from getting in, while still allowing you to shoot out. Just don’t forget to close the outside door!



“Honeycomb” your base! – Once you’re established and start to expand your base, it’s a good idea to put bracing walls around the central area. This is known as ‘honeycombing’; where you place walls to create a solid perimeter around the main part of your base. These spaces are often left inaccessible, but this makes it a lot harder for anyone trying to raid you, who will have to waste more time and resources to blow through the protective walls.



Get easy Low-Grade Fuel! – Low Grade Fuel is a highly sought-after resource early in the game as it’s needed to build a furnace. It’s mostly obtained by crafting it from Animal Fat, but animals can be hard to come by and most will either attack on sight or run away, making it somewhat of a challenge to get hold of.

Make life easier for yourself by looking out for the Red Barrels that can appear at Trash Piles around the map or most commonly at the Dome monument. These barrels will give you a small amount of Low Grade Fuel as well as Crude Oil, which can be refined in a Small Oil Refinery, one of which is also located at the Dome.

For a super-safe time farming Low Grade Fuel, you can look out for the floating platforms out at sea, which also spawn Red Barrels. These platforms aren’t often explored, making them a less dangerous option to loot.


If you find a useful item, keep it and research it! – It might be tempting to use that brand new MP5 you’ve just looted, but wouldn’t it be better if you could craft more of them for you and your friends? You can research how to craft many items in the game, so if you find something you think might come in useful, but you only have a small amount of, you can make a Research Table and pay an amount of Scrap to learn how to craft the item. Good examples of this are higher-tiered healing items or ammunition, which are quite hard to come by in early game.


This is by no means an exhaustive list or the only way to play – explore, build, fight, or survive! Hopefully, these tips and tricks will elevate your early game and at least prolong your survival in the harsh world of Rust Console Edition a little bit longer!

Rust Console Edition release date: Launch time locked, server issues latest

Rust Console Edition has seen several testing phases, and all of them have seen some kind of server strain.

So with the full release date now set for the next 24-hours, the Rust Console release time could see a huge spike in server traffic.

For those who might not have played it yet, Rust is a popular survival sim that offers plenty of scope for experimentation.

Gamers can band together to build massive structures, and they can also duke it out across PvP servers.

Rust has grown in popularity on PC in recent years, and 2021 has been the first time console gamers have been able to jump in.

But while it is called Rust Console Edition, it should be noted that this version is primarily focused on Xbox One and PS4.

On Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, through their respective backwards compatibility modes, the game will work.

However, the development team have not completed its implementation of these compatibility modes, and as such, gamers may experience higher levels of instability and unexpected behaviour.

Rust gamers with early access have already seen some of that, with a flurry of new updates expected over the coming week.

But for now, most fans are focused on the Rust Console Edition release date, which has been set for Friday, May 21.

No set release time has been shared, but it looks like Rust Console Edition will be unlocking between midnight and 1am BST across both platforms.

And with any big multiplayer launch, there could also be Rust Console servers going down throughout the day.

Double Eleven have been tuning everything up for launch day, but gamers should still be aware that there could be heavy traffic ahead.

The development team have also provided a rough guide on what to expect from post-launch support, with a new statement explaining:

“Right now our focus is on improving the performance and stability. Once that’s out of the way we can start adding additional content to the game. A roadmap is close to completion, and we believe now is a good time to share some of it with you.

“Our first post launch update aims to bring the highly requested Tech Tree, a great update to the game play, as well as Gestures that will improve the way you communicate in game.

“Other minor features like new Building Blocks will also be added. Some of the monuments that were present in the pre-order beta like the Train Yard, the Water Treatment Plant and the Supermarket need further polish, so for now we will work on improving them, and add them back with this update set to release in approximately 6 to 8 weeks.”

“We know that you want to see some of the most popular monuments like the Oil Rig and the Cargo Ship in game, as well as new methods of transportation like the horse, for example. Rest assured, some of those features are already being tested internally and we plan to release them in future content updates.

“Outside of the minor updates we will also have major updates where we will release significant amounts of new content to make sure the experience remains fresh for everyone invested in Rust Console Edition. Each update will have a central theme, making them feel more like game expansions than regular content updates.

“Major updates will release around 8 to 10 weeks apart from one another and they will not follow the same timeline in terms of content as Facepunch’s version of Rust. We will try to prioritize highly requested features first, but some of them might not make it to the game anytime soon due to the hardware limitations.

“The first major update will be called Power Surge, bringing new features like the electricity system and new in-game monuments like the Powerlines. A lot more is expected to come with this update, once we approach the month of release we will be revealing more details on what’s going to be included.”

Rust Console Edition release date: Servers down as PS4 and Xbox access begins

The Rust Console Edition release date has been set for Friday, May 21, bringing one of the biggest open-world survival games to PS4 and Xbox One.

And with the use of backwards compatibility, Rust will also be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

However, while Rust won’t officially be available until later this week, those who have pre-ordered the game have had a lot of chances to play it early.

The latest early access period has begun on PS4 and Xbox One, however, there have been a few bumps.

For those fans itching to get started in the harsh open-world of Rust, you can install and start playing Rust on consoles.

Don’t Miss: Rust Console Edition release date: Launch time locked, server issues latest

But you should be warned that the early launch has been affected by server issues, which have been returning on and off over the past 24-hours.

These issues are expected to continue while the Rust development team puts together patches and release hotfixes.

WHEN DOES RUST COME OUT ON XBOX AND PS4?

Rust Console Edition has a release date set for Friday, May 21, 2021, across PS4, Xbox One and next-gen consoles.

But for those who have pre-ordered the correct version of the game, you’ll be able to start playing much sooner.

The good news is that Rust early access has begun rolling out across PS4 and Xbox One, meaning you should be able to start playing if you have pre-ordered.

A message from the Rust team explains: “Early Access is now online for PlayStation users in NZ and AU. Early Access will proceed as scheduled for all PS4 users. Early Access for Xbox One will be going live at midnight UTC May 18th. Thank you for your patience. Hope you all have a great day.

The Deluxe Edition of Rust Console Edition provides three-day early access, meaning you have to spend a little extra cash to play today.

There’s a good chance that there will be a flurry patches in the lead up to the full launch of the game, with developers Double11 telling gamers this week:

“Right now our focus is on improving the performance and stability. Once that’s out of the way we can start adding additional content to the game. A roadmap is close to completion, and we believe now is a good time to share some of it with you.

“Our first post launch update aims to bring the highly requested Tech Tree, a great update to the game play, as well as Gestures that will improve the way you communicate in game.

Rust Console Beta: Great news as Rust beta extended on PS4 and Xbox One

The Rust Beta continues into April following huge demand from PS4 and Xbox One gamers and plenty of anticipation building for the final launch.

The console beta launched earlier in 2021, with an increasing number of players asking for codes. The bad news is that the development team are not planning on adding to the current numbers of players who have access.

But for those who are enjoying the survival sim, more time is being added to the Rust beta, which will make it easier to wait for the final release date.

The good news is that the Rust console beta will be continuing into next month, with the end date now set for April 5.

A message from developers Double Eleven reveals: “Thanks to all of you, we have a much clearer picture of how the game behaves when it hits high player counts, as well as what we need to do to support a large player base trying to connect at the same time.

“We didn’t expect to hit more than twelve thousand concurrent players during this test, but it happened, and we are very happy with the results.

“We’ve also learned that some of the features didn’t work properly and needed some minor adjustments. The team will keep working on those, as well as introducing new ones that we plan to have implemented before we release the game this Spring.

“Overall, the community has shown immense love and support for the game, and we understand the huge responsibility we have on our shoulders and how important it is for the community that we present the best possible version of Rust Console Edition once we release it. This is why we are going to extend the Closed Beta period for one more week.

“We want Rust Console Edition to be the best game it can possibly be, so by extending the beta; we should be able to get some more valuable information and work on even more improvements.”

It’s been a big week for gamers waiting on the final Rust release date on PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

It has now been confirmed that the Rust console edition will be launching on May 21, 2021, on PS4 and Xbox One.

Unfortunately for gamers who own the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there will be no optimised launch in May for Rust on those consoles.

This means that Rust will only run to specs fixed for last-gen consoles, with a statement from the development team adding:

“To accommodate the game on these systems, some light optimisations wouldn’t cut it! So the team needed to rip apart and rewrite major engine subsystems within Unity. Some of the systems we designed and refactored helped us a lot, improving the performance of the game over on consoles.

“Another big issue was loading time. When we first had Rust up and running on console, the initial load took up to 45 minutes to read and decompress the enormous procedural map and its assets into memory.

“We implemented a whole new bootstrap system, capable of loading multiple Unity scenes and asset bundles simultaneously, and in a manner more suited to the mechanical hard disks of these machines. After a lot of work, the game now loads in around one minute give or take.”

More news is expected to be shared by Double Eleven and Facepunch Studios in the lead-up to the PS4 and Xbox One launch.
