After a load of contemporary curiosity from a few of the largest names on Twitch, Rust is poised for a large 2021. (The Rust player count has already reached a brand new all-time peak and is continuous to develop.) The primary replace of the brand new 12 months is a comparatively small one, nevertheless it units the stage for what to anticipate within the subsequent handful of months.
First off, remember – you’re shedding your blueprints. The devs are “force-wiping blueprints throughout all Rust servers” on account of the current tech tree system, to make sure everybody’s as soon as once more taking part in on a stage subject. That is the primary such wipe in years, and the devs say it’ll be a “lengthy, lengthy whereas” earlier than it occurs once more.
Rust is getting Twitch Drops now, too. Watching any Rust stream will get you three rewards: a settee after two hours, an industrial door after 4 hours, and a hobo barrel after eight hours. Moreover, 9 streamers now have personalised in-game gadgets you may get by watching 4 hours of their respective streams: auronplay, jacksepticeye, lilypichu, ludwig, Delusion, pokimane, shroud, Sykkuno, and xQc. You may see these particulars on the official site.
Rust has simply reached 200,000 concurrent players as I write this, and the devs wish to make room for all these new faces. 13 new servers are launching at present, and the devs are able to convey up extra as the necessity arises.
It is a a lot smaller replace than the one which introduced us tech bushes, however Rust’s place on the lead of the pack of survival games exhibits no indicators of dissipating.
