A new Rust Console Edition update is out now for both PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Patch 1.30 adds a new wave of bonus content while also making improving and fixing bugs.


Rust Console Edition update 1.30 is ready to download on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Its arrival was promptly followed by a server wipe, making way for the Offshore Blowout content being introduced. Diehard fans can also get their hands on some new premium DLC with more packs available from the in-game skin store.

After years of waiting, Rust finally made the leap from PC to console. It’s been almost a decade since the popular survival sandbox title hit Steam early access, quickly becoming the template for an entire genre.

In our review of Rust on PS4 and Xbox One, we scored the port a 6/10, saying: “Rust 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.”
