Get ready for big changes — the Rust World Revamp Update has arrived, bringing some pretty big changes to the game's map along with a helping of some new content for gamers to enjoy.

Rust is one of the longest-running open-world survival games on the market and it's been through a fair few updates. One of the most memorable updates is when it shifted from a static map to a somewhat more randomized one that was much more expansive and featured a lot more for players to do.

Now, the Rust World Revamp Update has arrived and it's mixing things up yet again. Check out the brand-new trailer that shows off some of the changes and improvements in scenery!

What's New in the Rust World Revamp Update?

As one might expect, the biggest change in the Rust World Revamp Update is changes to the game world. New terrain, trees, rocks, grass, and other decor will be noticeable throughout the entire world, but that's just the start.

A number of monuments have been completely re-worked and will look very different from what you've seen before. The Junkyard, Satellite Dish, and other monuments are now better integrated into the procedurally-generated world, and many of these monuments will have custom subway tunnel entrances. The Junkyard, in particular, will look very different from before and should address many player complaints about this location.

Mind, Facepunch didn't forget about performance — many of the changes to Monuments and other locations were done with performance in mind. One particular example is the Bandit Town: the number of NPCs has been reduced, the forest has been made a bit less dense, and the huts have been completely remodeled. This and other changes should give gamers much better performance than before.

These are just some of the many changes coming to the game; this update also has a whole bunch of patch notes detailing new additions and other changes. You can read the full Rust World Revamp Update patch notes for all the fine details. Check out the updated world and all of the other new goodies by buying Rust on Steam for $39.99 or your regional equivalent!
