Facepunch Studios-developed survival multiplayer game Rust is still one of the most played games on PC, and the constant updates by the developers to keep the game fresh are one of the key factors that contribute to the popularity. Keeping true to their commitments, Facepunch has now released another new update for the PC version of the game.

The March update covers plenty of areas the game needs improvements in, such as visual improvements of the older monuments in the game to bring them in line with its current quality and fielity, and also make it consistent with overall the visual tone. The junkyard magnet crane has also been improved, along with fixes being made for the night vision visuals.

The visual experience of driving vehicles have also been updated, along with some updates to world models, fixes, and general QoL changes, such as slower car decay, large furnaces providing warmth and heat, and more.

The changes are pretty diverse, so it is advisable to read the full update on the game’s Steam page. Down below, you can read the changelog for the March update.
