The only aim in Rust is to survive.
To do this you will need to overcome struggles such as hunger, thirst and cold. Build a fire. Build a shelter. Kill animals for meat. Protect yourself from other players, and kill them for meat. Create alliances with other players and form a town.
Whatever it takes to survive.
Almost everything will kill you in this post nuclear world. Luckily you can do what ever it takes to find what you need to survive. Even if that means you need to kill to get what you need.
Create the tools you need to hunt or build large shelters. Life isn't easy and now you have to build what you need or take what others have made.
You can play with up to 300 people at once in the Steam server. Choose wisely how you engage with your community because it could be the beginning or the end for your tribe.
