There are no more zombies in Rust
Popular sandbox game removes zombies in its most recent update, and teases a replacement.
Developer Facepunch Studios has released a new update for popular sandbox title Rust which rids the world of its zombie infestation.
While zombies were never meant to be a permanent fixture in the open-world success story, the developer has now removed them as part of its February 6 update to finally kill off association of Rust as a zombie survival game.
"Yep. We did it. We decided we couldn’t hold off any longer," said the update notes. "The longer we keep zombies in--the more complaints we’d get about removing them. We are forcing ourselves to deal with it. We are no longer a zombie survival game!"
Zombies have now been "replaced with red bears and wolves. You hate them. We know. They’re just plugging a gap for now."
"All will be revvvealed," concluded the developer.
Other changes in the game's latest update include new animations for players and melee attacks, new grass textures, and a new locked backpack feature.
"Rust requires a real willingness to forgive its technical shortcomings in order to experience the emergent gameplay that makes it such a promising entry in the survival genre," said Shaun McInnis in GameSpot's Early Access review of Rust. "But it's a game that continues to improve with each passing update, and the potential that lies beneath those flaws becomes even easier to see. Whether or not you choose to buy it now, Rust is certainly a game to keep an eye on."
