Rust Anniversary Update

Face Punch Studios celebrates this month's fifth anniversary of the launch of Rust with the release of a new Electric Anniversary patch adding electrical components to the survival game. This video offers a quick look at how this adds a new charge to gameplay, and they offer examples of how this can be used to make a clock or timer or even build a computer. Word is: "We now have a fully functional logic gate system in Rust. It's a real game changer, in a year that's already seen Rust add cargo ships and hot air balloons." Here's more on the update: "Celebrating Rust's 5th anniversary with a huge update: electricity is here, enabling players to build elaborate defensive contraptions and other amazing devices. This patch wipes the servers. Enjoy!" This fifth anniversary is one of the topics of this post where Garry looks back on what 2018 meant to the studio as well as plans for 2019.
