Facepunch Studios frequently keeps its survival IP Rust up to date with big fixes and new content, and now fans will be able to own the OST as well.

In this modern era of gaming, players can appreciate more than just the visuals, gameplay mechanics, story, or the love that's shown from the modding community when it comes to their favorite titles. Video game scores and soundtracks are just as important to an IP as the plot and overall enjoyment fans get from playing. With that in mind, it looks as though Facepunch Studios, the team behind the brutal online survival game Rust, has updated the game once more, and introduced a way for fans to download the music.

According to an official post on Steam, a new patch for Rust has been rolling out, which sees a lot of tweaks and quality of life changes being implemented, which all go a long way to ensuring the ongoing success of the game. Alongside that, the developer has also released the official soundtrack for it, which can be downloaded for an additional cost. A teaser video for it boasts 29 tracks, featuring more than an hour of "ambient music," which not only comes from the game itself, but has also been taken from trailers, all of which has been composed by sound designer Alex Rehberg.

Rust recently received the Arctic update, which introduced a snowy aesthetic to the world, and now this latest patch brings with it a lot of additional fixes. One of the things that the studio has been working to improve is the lighting, which includes adding new lights and effects, as well as adding "darkening volumes" to the world's interior locations. There's also been some general QoL tweaks, such as large furnaces now providing heat and comfort, and cars decaying slower over time. The update also revamps the loading screen, which now shows server stats.

Facepunch Studios consistently keeps Rust updated, and not just with bug fixes and visual improvements here and there. Often, there are thematic patches rolled out that celebrate seasonal periods, such as a Christmas update, and the recent Lunar update that celebrated the Spring Festival in China.

It's good to see that the developer is working hard to keep everything ticking over nicely. As one of the most brutal survival games, many players know just how difficult it can be to make it through the night whilst playing. It's definitely not for the faint of heart. But it's partly that brutality that keeps people coming back. The chance to survive in a harsh environment is an aspect of gaming that isn't dying any time soon, and Facepunch evidently knows that.

The full changelog is as follows:

Rust is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
