Rust January 2022 Update Release Time & Patch Notes Today

The first update of the year arrives later today!

January 6, 2022

The very first update of the year is headed to Rust later today (January 6), with plenty of new content and changes expected.

Today’s update will only be made available to the PC version of Rust, as the console edition of the game has a separate development team and different updates. But for those on PC, you’ll be pleased to know that the first Thursday of each month means some brand new content is on the way.

Here’s the official release time and patch notes for the Rust January update.

Rust January 2022 Update Release Time

As mentioned previously, the PC version of Rust receives new content updates on the first Thursday of each month. So, fans can expect the January 2022 update to arrive on Thursday, January 6th, 2022.

The exact release time for the update is expected to be the same as always, 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 7PM GMT.

It’s currently unknown if the servers will be taken down for maintenance before the release of today’s update. December’s Rust update saw the game’s servers down for 3 hours to perform maintenance for the release of the last update.

Should server maintenance be required for today’s Rust update, we will be sure to update this article with the full details and times.


Rust January 2022 Update Patch Notes

UPDATE: It looks like the Rust servers have been wiped but no new content in today’s update. Instead, users can read all about the upcoming content for 2022 in the new developer blog post found below.

ORIGINAL STORY: Unfortunately, the official patch notes for the January 6 Rust update haven’t been released just yet. As the update isn’t expected to go live until later today, we anticipate patch notes following shortly after the update goes live. Stay tuned as we will be updating this article with full details as soon as they are available.

In the meantime, there’s plenty of content to speculate on for the January update. As noted in SHADOWFRAX’s latest YouTube video, fans are still waiting for the release of new arctic bases, snowmobiles, travel between servers, and more. Whatever’s included in the January 2022 Rust update, you can bet it’ll be big.

Stay tuned for more details soon!
