Rust no longer a “zombie survival game”

The latest update from Facepunch Studios for its hugely popular game Rust has finally removed zombies, meaning that in the words of the developers, it is no longer a “zombie survival game”. The zombies have been replaced with wildlife such as red bears and wolves, although these are just placeholders at the moment. On the Rust official website, developer Maurino Berry said, “Yep. We did it. We decided we couldn’t hold off any longer. The longer we keep zombies in – the more complaints we’d get about removing them. We are forcing ourselves to deal with it. We are no longer a zombie survival game!”

As well as the removal of zombies, the update also brought with IT an improvement to the wildlife with better AI. Resource objects have also been improved with new models. A full list of improvements and changes to Rust can be found on the website. Rust is currently available on Steam as part of its Early Access program, however the game is far from finished. Recently Garry Newman stated, “We feel like we aren’t making it clear enough that the game is Early Access. Rust is still in development. This isn’t 95% finished, like a regular beta. This is 10% finished. We’ve got the bare bone foundations of a game here. We’re still developing it.”
