Double Eleven has announced that Rust is finally coming for consoles on May 21st. But this isn’t just a port of the PC version of the game. Developers have created Rust Console Edition has been build and designed as a separate experience from its PC cousin, at least “under the hood”. While the gameplay portion of the game remains largely unchanged, RCE has been specifically optimized for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Preorders for RCE have already started. Both digital and physical editions are planned that range in price from $49.99 to $79.99.
- Rust Standard Edition and Rust Day One Physical Edition ($49.99 USD) includes the base game, with a preorder bonus that includes a Future Weapons and Tools Pack. Survivalists looking to nab a physical edition of Rust can also grab this bonus with a Day One Edition preorder from GameStop and Amazon in North America.
- Rust Deluxe Edition ($59.99) welcomes survivalists with an aptly named Welcome Pack ($14.99 value) that includes the base game, three days of early access, closed beta access, staging branch access, and includes the Future Weapons and Tools Pack.
- Rust Ultimate Edition ($79.99 USD) provides the most ardent fans with the features of the previous two editions but also includes an ultimate/upgraded version of the Welcome Pack, 1100 Rust Coins (a $10 value), and an Elite Combat Skin Pack so you can look as menacing as possible to newcomers and veterans alike.
The game puts players in a post-apocalyptic world that challenges them to stay alive by conquering thirst, hunger, and the elements. Players can work cooperatively or not as there are no real rules to how each island’s inhabitants behave.
