What is Rust?

Rust is an Early Access survival game on Steam, created by Facepunch Studios. We also make Garry’s Mod, which has sold over 7 million copies.

Rust was inspired by games like DayZ, Minecraft and Stalker. It is a massive multiplayer game (currently up to 300 players per server) where you and other players are attempting to survive through the awful conditions, where humanity has been reduced to cavemen. 

Rust’s world is harsh. 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. Other players can find you, kill you, and take your stuff. Fortunately for you, you can kill others and take their stuff. Or maybe you can make friends and help each other survive, using the game’s building tools to create a safe haven.

We provide the tools. How players survive is up to them.

Importantly: Rust is in active development.

Development Process

We update the game on a weekly basis. Every thursday we post a devblog on this site to let people know what we’ve done.
