An open-world after you
Rust is an open-world game which managed to blend elements from first-person shooters, survival and construction games.
A nice mashup between Minecraft and Fallout
You only have one goal in this title, survive. Overcome the harsh settings and lurking enemies
The first scene, sets the tone for the rest of the game: you are thrown on a random point on an island miles away from civilization. All you have is a torch, some stones, and tires. From there on, it is up to you to fight for survival. Your new home inhabits wild animals which are after you. Servers can host up to 300 players at a time. Start playing Rust to find out who is after you, and who is motivated to help you survive.
On first glance, this title might seem like a more mature version of Minecraft, because your objective is to gather enough raw materials for construction of different things. Other players are the big difference between Minecraft and this game. Everyone you encounter can kill you, rob you, destroy your home, or help you. There is no restriction for behavior between players. When you don’t have to worry about other Rust enthusiasts, you will be busy enough with keeping yourself warm, searching for food and dealing with large animals.
While you don’t need a strong processor to play this game, without a stronger device, you won’t be able to enjoy the astonishing visuals to the fullest. Gameplay can feel repetitive on occasions as there is no ecological variations in the isles and other areas in the game.
Where can you run this program?
This game requires a 64-bit processor and OS. You can install this title on computers using Windows 7 and later.
Is there a better alternative?
No. No other survival games can match the grim realism and sense of bloodthirst as Rust does. Most similar games, such is Minecraft, tend to mask this ruthlessness of the survival genre with childish charms and cute graphics.
This game keeps you at the edge of your seat as long as you play. Staying alive and forming alliances with other players can sometimes be challenging, but it is also a rewarding experience for the same reason
Should you download it?
Yes. Rust will grab your attention with its gorgeous graphics, and keep it with the post-apocalyptic atmosphere the game creates.
