Rust Console Edition will allow players the means to rent, run and manage their own dedicated community server. Players may do so from within the game, in a secure, intuitive and user-friendly way. No apps, websites, or taking players away from the console.
As things progress, hostile animals and, of course, the other players on the Rust server await in the form of life-threatening challenges. In February , Rust was released as a full-fledged game on Steam after a long Early Access phase, although the developer team Facepunch Studios probably only dreamed that the game would become one of the hottest multiplayers in the Twitch scene. We will then show you how to create your own Rust server and get it up and running, step by step. As the administrator of a server, you have the power to decide whether PvE or PvP is the focus, which map to play, and how big the game world should be in general.

Rust is best when played with friends, which is why so many players desire to know how to run their own private servers. First and foremost, these are free servers, unlike other dedicated servers that you might have to buy. However, it does take a degree of computer literacy in order to make it work, so make sure to have your very best techy friend on standby. When you have your own server it is easier to learn the game, play around with base designs, and enjoy time with friends before being murdered by hordes of naked players with spears. One thing to keep in mind is that you need to make sure that your computer can handle hosting and playing at the same time, otherwise you might end up with a poor experience. The first step is to make sure your computer can handle the game , whether you are playing and hosting on the same or separate systems. You also want to check your internet connection speed and make sure you go with a wired connection to eliminate lag. Now that you have the right PC, this is the tricky part that can become a little confusing.
