Rust: Console Edition will release for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this spring, publisher Double Eleven, and developer Facepunch Studios confirmed.
“The title has evolved from its earliest days as a primal-survival game to one that stands out among its competitors–featuring shockingly detailed worlds to explore and build in, filled with a variety of gameplay styles, weapons, crafts, and above all else: combat,” Double Eleven said in its announcement.

Development and publishing of Rust for the PlayStation and Xbox consoles is being developed by UK-based Double Eleven, independent from the original PC version’s developer and publisher Facepunch.
Players looking for the ultimate competitive survival experience on Xbox and PlayStation will be able to play online with up to 100 others when the game hits in a few months. Waking up on a mysterious post-apocalyptic island littered with dilapidated industrial monuments and probing scientists, it’s up to you to figure out how to keep yourself alive in a world where everything wants you dead.
In Rust, there is one goal above everything else: survive. from conquering thirst and hunger, battling the elements, creating clothes, and staying safe against hostile forces.
Rust is a game without rules, players are free to be deceptive and aggressive with intense player vs. player combat, raiding, and looting, but there is potentially, even more, to be earned with a team of friendly players by your side. In the struggle for survival and supremacy, players can build tiny cabins in the woods to huge scrap metal fortresses in an attempt to stay safe, as well as craft a variety of weapons, bombs, and traps.
Double Eleven scheduled the release of Rust: Console Edition for a 2020 release, however, the development was inevitably delayed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
