Howdy, survivors! Our western-style content update, conveniently named Horsepocalypse, is making its way to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
This free update will be available for Rust Console Edition starting August 31, with the monthly wipe. Y’all wanted this so bad, we couldn’t help but listen. So, brush off them hats and lace up those boots, because we’re gonna take you through each shiny new feature comin’ to town!
This game changing feature is about to turn Rust Console Edition into a whole new experience. Horses have been part of the game since we first released it, but now you can ride them and equip them with equipment like Horseshoes and Saddles to make them faster or more durable. With rideable horses, you can travel across the map much faster, making those long-distance journeys easier and more efficient with your time.
Horses come in 10 different breeds. Some are speedy, while others are sturdier. And they’re not just tools — you’ll need to take good care of them! Build them a safe place in or around your base and be sure to feed them if you expect them to survive the night. In return, they’ll be loyal companions, sticking by your side in the toughest of challenges.
New Monument Safe Zones
Also rollin’ into town with this update are two new safe zone monuments. Yep, you heard it right! These new safe zones are the Large Barn and the Ranch, and you must be wondering, “what can I do there?” Well, partner, you can get all sorts of horse gear like Saddles, Horse Armor (of course we made horse armor), and Horseshoes. And guess what? You can even get your hands on one of the six horses hangin’ around the place. All you gotta do is buy a Saddle from the vendor and walk yourself over to the stable. Once there, pick your favorite stallion, slap that saddle on it, and… it’s yours!
Mind you, both the Large Barn and the Ranch are peaceful zones for both survivors and horses, so no weapons are allowed inside. If you decide to act all rowdy, the turrets will quickly put a stop to your mean-spirited acts.
Horsepocalypse will also introduce NPC missions! Now, don’t you worry, especially if you’re just starting out your survival adventures. These missions are like a friendly guide to help you learn about different aspects of the game, such as gathering resources, hunting ,and fishing. And the real kicker is that some of these missions hand out rewards that can really speed up your progress in-game, putting you ahead of the competition.
So, next time you step onto that island, don’t forget to give some of these missions a try. Trust me, it’s a mighty good time!
More to Come
Don’t ride off into the sunset just yet as we’ve got a couple more surprises hidden up our sleeves for this update, but we’d like you to go out and discover them on your own! With every content update, Rust Console Edition becomes bigger and better and Horsepocalypse is the prime example of that. Round up your teammates, throw some meat on the Barbeque, and see for yourself why this is one of the best survival experiences you can play today on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
