2:21pm EST - The client update just came out! Given there isn’t much of anything in this update and that it’s already live, we’re not going to have an update stream today. Happy wipe and happy new year everyone!
2:13pm EST - The server update just hit! Client is still pending. We’re rolling the updates on our servers now.
12:00am EST - It’s a new year for Rust development and there are some exciting things right around the corner on the roadmap. After a much deserved holiday break, the team is getting back into the swing of things.
Although there will be an update and forced map wipe today, it appears as though new additions to the game will be sparse - overall we’re mainly seeing a few minor fixes.
Our update stream will go live at 3pm EST (unless the update is already live). Follow @Rustafied for news throughout the day. Before we get into the summary of changes, check out our 2018 year in review video!
