Rust Console Edition rated by ESRB for PS4

By Sean Carey,
Rust Console Edition has received an ESRB rating for PS4 and Xbox One, which could mean the port will release sooner rather than later.

We haven't heard much on Rust Console Edition since its announcement back in 2019. The game was due to launch sometime in 2020, but due to the pandemic, developer Double Eleven had to push back its release into 2021.

The rating (via Comicbook) lists only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as platforms, and considering the game was only announced for last-gen consoles, it's likely it won't be optimised for PS5, although an optimisation patch could come at a later date. Rust Console Edition has received an "M" rating and is described by the ESRB as "a multiplayer first-person survival game in which players compete to survive in a hostile environment. Players explore the open-world environment, gather resources, create weapons (e.g., spears, machine guns, explosives), and defend themselves from wild animals and other players. Players can attack and kill enemies in frenetic combat, with successful hits resulting in large splashes of blood. Players can keep shooting animals or humans on the ground (i.e., postmortem damage), accompanied by large blood-splatter effects."

"Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire and explosions. When human enemies are killed, they can be harvested for body parts and cooked for food."

Although no release date has been specified, usually when a game is rated, it's close to launching. Once we hear more on Rust Console Edition, we'll be sure to update you.
