Rust Server Hosting
Despite being released in 2013, Rust is still an early access game, but that doesn’t prevent it from being one of the most beloved open-world survival games on Steam. Rust started as a clone of DayZ, an extremely popular open-world survival modification for ARMA 2, designed by Dean Hall and later released as a stand-alone title by Bohemia Interactive. The two games shared many similarities, including the presence of zombies as enemies and radiation as one of many hazards players need to avoid to survive. As the development progressed, zombies were replaced with bears and wolves, and the radiation mechanic was removed as well.
In its current iteration, Rust supports up to 300 players on a single server, and its core gameplay mechanics revolve around survival and conquest. Players are encouraged to form clans and build settlements. Using bows, stones, and even guns, clans often engage in massive conflicts as they attempt to capture new territories and steal resources from one another. The developers have sold several million copies of the game to this day, and they continue to attract new players thanks to regular updates and sensible pricing. Rust is currently fully translated into 9 different languages.
