Rust? Was there a sale?
Yes, and it's still going on, but it's the highest sale price they've ever offered at 33% off of $40. Their regular price went up early last year, but still, it was 50% off for the summer sale and 75% off a few times before that... I suspect there's more to this all-time high of popularity, like maybe some streamer(s) have been promoting it. They doubled their concurrent player count literally overnight last week, from around 100k to 200-240k, when their previous numbers throughout the last SEVEN years of the game's life have been 50-100k with a peak of no more than 125k despite selling for as little as $9 on more than one occasion.
