Why Rust is a big deal now

Inside Gaming published this video item, entitled “Why Rust is a big deal now” – below is their description.

Rust has taken over one of the top spots for most concurrently played games on both Twitch and Steam. Over the last three weeks Facepunch Studios 2018 title, Rust, has increased in popularity exponentially and today we are breaking down exactly what went down to make this game take off.

Rust entered Steam early access in 2013 and since then it has had some waves of popularity but nothing quite like this. Content creator super group OfflineTV decided to put together a Rust server over the holiday break and they invited over 50 top content creators to join.

What happened next and the drama that ensued wasn’t entirely surprising but it was certainly entertaining and the primer for a new top game on Twitch racking up millions of hours watched.
