Rust Console Edition Update 1.09 Patch Notes | PS4 & Xbox One

Changes

  • Found reproduction steps for the “Invisible walls” bug. When testing in isolation it was discovered they were actually ghost trees, but this has now been fixed!

  • Fixed an issue with Voicechat causing thousands and thousands of requests to be sent in a short period of time. This was leading to slow internal operations.

  • Added more error checking into Voicechat with the aim of catching some of the remaining (rare) crashes.

UI for Halloween

  • Added a “quick open” feature to the main menu. This will take players directly to the new added skin bundles.

  • Added a new video and ambience to the main menu to celebrate Halloween.

In our review of Rust on PS4 and Xbox One, we scored the port a 6/10, saying: โ€œRust Console Edition manages to transcribe the wildly popular PC experience, but a few key missing features mean it falls short of what it should be. It could be great in time, but right now it feels like a disappointing misstep in comparison to the fleshed out PC version.โ€
