Rust Devs Experimenting With Xbox One Devkit

View author's profile

FacePunch Studios has Xbox One development kits and is currently playing around with a port of Rust.

Currently in alpha on Steam Early Access, Rust is - very roughly - a cross between Minecraft and DayZ, in which players navigate an open environment, crafting and building in a world populated by other players. Already a huge hit on PC, an Xbox One version would be welcome. However, it looks like if a console port of the game does come, it won’t be in a hurry.

FacePunch founder Garry Newman thanked Microsoft on Twitter for sending along the Xbox One devkits, but when asked whether he was working on Rust for Xbox One and PS4 or just tinkering around, he replied, “a bit of both.”

“Neither have an Early Access program [as far as I know] – so anything we do is a while off,” he said.

It would be great to have a port for X1, but I suspect PC gamers will be wishing that the devs would focus on finishing off their version before they start working on ports!

Seeing the state that Battlefield 4 came out in I would say the Xbox and PS4 already have a early access program.

Been very tempted to get this, but haven't yet. Still on DayZ.

Would like to see this come to a console though.

This would be cool and I would for sure buy it, but at the end of the day it's not because of these lil' indie games that I bought my Xbox One.

The two pc games I would love on console right now are rust, and prop hunt (counter strike not team fortress). They would both be fun to play with my console friends and particularly with rust as there wouldn't be any hackers.

Early release should now start to be developed for any gaming platform, as many games would benefit from a constant beta stage and possibly an alpha stage. Look at battlefield 4 and aliens CM, they would have benefitted from an early release.

I cannot see much bad impact to sales and possibly gain more sales as players will feel 'included' in developing that game and they maybecome attached.
