Rust Console Edition

Since Rust launched for Windows and Mac back in 2018, the game has found a huge following. It quickly became one of the most popular survival video games around, and even found a massive revival in recent times after various Twitch streamers began playing the game again, propelling the Rust player base to 244,000 in January of 2021.

It looks like the success is about to keep coming as Rust will officially release on Xbox and PlayStation on May 21, 2021.

According to the developers, the Rust Console Edition will exist as a separate entity from the PC version. Both versions will have a separate roadmap and community.

Pre-order Rust on PlayStation and Xbox right now. Those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition of the game will gain access to Rust on May 18, 3 days earlier than the official release date for the Standard Edition.

Will Rust Be On Xbox Game Pass?

As mentioned previously, the Console Edition of Rust comes with a rather hefty $50/£45 price tag. So, will you be able to pick up Rust Console Edition for free as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription?

As of writing, the answer is no. Rust Console Edition has not currently been confirmed to be arriving on Xbox Game Pass.

However, this doesn’t mean that the game will never arrive on Game Pass. The line-up of games joining Game Pass for the month of May have already been announced, but June is still yet to be confirmed.

Keep your eye on the official Xbox Game Pass Website to stay up to date with all of the latest games joining the popular subscription service.
