Newman: Do not see this decision as a sign that the game is over
Rust, the survival that came to Steam Early Access in 2013, is very close to leaving the early access program. The bad news is that this also means that your price will increase.
Through a post on the Rust website, Garry Newman, the lead creative behind Rust , announced that his game will leave the Early Access program starting on February 8. So, from that day the survival will stop offering in exchange for $ 19.99 USD to begin to cost $ 34.99 USD. That is, starting next month, it will be $ 15 USD more expensive.
Of course, Newman made it clear that fans should not expect many changes once Rust leaves Steam Early Access. In other words, the creative noted that Rust fans should not see this as a sign that the game is over, as it will continue to receive updates.
“Do not see this decision as a sign that [ Rust ] is finished. See it as a way in which we say that, if Early Access did not exist, this would be the moment when we would launch it on Steam. (…) Please, avoid comparing the game with other unfinished titles or the idealized version you have in your head. Compare the game with what it was like when we entered Early Access. That’s what makes us think we’re qualified to leave Early Access. See it more as we are ceasing to be a prototype to enter the Alpha phase, “he said.
However, Rust fans should not take Newman’s words as a sign that nothing is going to change, as instead of receiving weekly updates they will present monthly updates that are more meaningful. That said, Rust will receive new test servers while fans can help test the news that Facepunch is cooking.
What do you think about this? Do you think Rust is at the ideal moment to leave Early Access? Tell us in the comments.
In case you do not know, Rust is a first-person survival game in which players must collect resources to survive and make weapons and other objects that allow them to survive.
