Another massive Rust Console Edition content update is set to release today on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S!
Introducing Power Surge. This highly requested update promises to “energize” your gaming experience. With it comes the new Power Plant monument, as well as cutting-edge components that will expand your base-building capabilities. Be prepared to transform your gameplay like never before, and stick around to learn more about all the new exciting features coming out with Power Surge.
Electrify the Competition
One of the major highlights of this update is the introduction of electricity. This new feature will provide power to your base components and incorporating it brings numerous benefits, greatly enhancing your base-building potential.
By utilising circuits, you’ll have the ability to link multiple electrical components together, providing a multitude of possibilities to improve your base’s functionality. For instance, you can do something simple like installing a heartbeat sensor outside of your base connected to an alarm system to get an alert anytime someone tries to camp you, or or you can do something way more complex and create a trap base! This base can be fully automated, so don’t forget to check it every now and again to collect the loot from those who are unfortunate enough to fall for your trap.
The possibilities are endless, and the system is designed to be as complex as you wanted it to be, giving you a lot more freedom on how you decide to survive on the island.
Before planning a new base layout, there are two crucial aspects that require your consideration. First is ensuring a dependable source of energy, which can be obtained through solar panels, wind turbines, or small generators that consume low-grade fuel, to keep your electrical components operational.
Second, it is essential to take into account the number of items you plan to incorporate in your base, as each item consumes a specific amount of power, and it is necessary to ensure that you have adequate energy to keep everything functional. Power supply can be challenging during the night, as solar panels will not generate any power. Therefore, to keep your base functional you will need to install batteries capable of storing sufficient energy for the night.
Not Even Radiation Can Stop You!
The Power Plant marks the newest addition to the roster of monuments in Rust Console Edition. This mid-game monument boasts a plethora of valuable loot, including a valuable Red Keycard for those who complete the puzzle in the main building. Code Locked Hackable Crates can also drop in this monument.
However, be warned that certain areas of this monument are irradiated due to the remnants of the abandoned nuclear power plants at its core. As such, it is highly recommended that you equip yourself with adequate protective gear like a hazmat suit, before venturing into this area of the map. It is also advisable to bring along some medical supplies and at least one gun, as the Power Plant is frequently contested by other players.
At the end of your loot run, if you manage to survive the rewards are sure to be worth your time.
A Brand New Start
As part of the Power Surge update, we will be performing a complete Blueprint wipe across all servers. This means that every player, regardless of their experience level, will be given a fresh start.
With the introduction of new electricity items, the tech tree will be expanded, offering players an increased range of options. The result is a more nuanced and intricate blueprint system that enables you to build your character in unique and imaginative ways.
We are very excited to finally get Power Surge in the hands of our Rust Console Edition Xbox players and we can’t wait for you to try all the new amazing features and systems. We hope to see you soon on the island!
