Rust is all the time getting new content material — there are 12 million copies to hold up to date, in any case. We simply acquired a rundown of the multiplayer survival game’s April update, and it has two very ‘zippy’ highlights.

The first is the addition of ziplines, that means now you can glide alongside energy strains to shortly move from station to station. You can management your pace as you go, however collision of any kind — particularly with different gamers — will knock you off. The second spotlight is a brand new railway function, which provides a practice monitor loop to “any map size 4250 or larger,” in response to the patch notes. The new rail system function “is just a tech test / proof of concept for now,” and there aren’t even any trains working alongside the tracks. Still, it’s a neat addition that reveals what developer Facepunch has deliberate.

Other adjustments within the April update embody higher lighting for monuments and a number of other quality-of-life enhancements. You can get a glimpse of all that within the Zipline & Rail Update trailer under, then try the complete patch notes.
