PC survival title Rust is leaving early access after four years

PC survival title Rust is leaving early access after four years

We Happy Few, a game about taking forced happiness drugs in 1960's alternate England to avoid the horrors of a dystopia, was set to leave Steam Early Access and release in full on April 13th 2018.

Rust is more of a hardcore survival experience, where thirst and hunger have to be taken into account while also building bases and fighting off the wilderness and other players. The developer confirmed that the game will officially launch on February 8, 2018. There is still much they need to do and the people at Facepunch will continue to update the game on a monthly basis.

The developers stress that the game is not "finished". Obviously the "staging branch" version of the game will have more stability issues and will be fairly buggy from time to time.

This change will also see an increase in price from the early access cost of $19.99 United States dollars to $34.99 USD. Like, for real. The release date has been set to 8th February, which is when the game will finally shed its Early Access tag.

The Rust developers ended on the following note: "Please try not to compare the game to some other finished game or some idealised version you have in your head".

"Don't think of this as us claiming that the game is done", said studio founder Garry Newman, of Garry's Mod fame. As is typical with these types of games, the price will increase from $20 to $35 at launch. The unstable version will receive minor updates basically every day, and once those updates have been tested sufficiently, they will be patched into the stable version at the end of each month. Facepunch says that the game is only now entering Alpha and that leaving Early Access means that the prototyping phase is over and that's why it's being released. There will be the "live" version, or stable version, and the unstable version, a version of the game that will be used to test new features and fixes. "And it's not like we're increasing the price to $60 without any warning", he wrote.
