After a load of recent curiosity from a number of the largest names on Twitch, Rust is poised for an enormous 2021. (The Rust player count has already reached a brand new all-time peak and is constant to develop.) The first update of the brand new yr is a comparatively small one, nevertheless it units the stage for what to anticipate within the subsequent handful of months.

First off, bear in mind – you’re dropping your blueprints. The devs are “force-wiping blueprints across all Rust servers” on account of the latest tech tree system, to make sure everybody’s as soon as once more enjoying on a degree discipline. This is the primary such wipe in years, and the devs say it’ll be a “long, long while” 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. Additionally, 9 streamers now have personalised in-game gadgets you will get by watching 4 hours of their respective streams: auronplay, jacksepticeye, lilypichu, ludwig, Myth, pokimane, shroud, Sykkuno, and xQc. You can 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 right this moment, and the devs are able to carry up more as the necessity arises.
