RUST is an online multiplayer open-world survival game that focuses on natural resources as a means to survive. Players can forage for resources, build their own bases by crafting materials, make friends or ally with other players and make enemies by raiding other player's bases.
In RUST you can expect to spend your time gathering resources, defending your base, fighting other players and hopefully making some friends. Despite it still in Alpha testing RUST has a crisp control set and runs smoothly on older hardware, making it attractive to all levels of players. On that note, the environment is dynamic enough to cater for both tactical and strategic players. Don't like gun fights? Fine, wait until dark and creep up on your enemy with a spear. Don't like the dark? No problem, build a cozy base and watch the world from inside.
Whilst not considered to be a competitive game the core of RUST is player-vs-player (PvP), and like all PvP games you will die, a lot. However, finding resources and your killer are fairly easy and ultimately leads to an enjoyable experience.
