Facepunch wished all fans of the multiplayer survival simulator Rust a Happy New Year and Merry Christmas, and also announced the release of a winter-themed patch that launched the event until January 5, 2023 and brightened up the game.
Users can enjoy the ringing of bells, which means the appearance of gifts during adventures. Presents can spawn within a radius of around 40m from where the player is standing, and come in small, medium, or large sizes. The contents of each gift are different: you’ll find a mixture of resources, weapons, candy, and themed cosmetics that provide decent protection.
The Advent Calendar is a new craftable item available to everyone during the Christmas event. Once placed, you can claim an in-game surprise once per day. Even around the world, gingerbread houses have mysteriously begun to appear, leading to a dungeon that smells like grandma’s pastries and is full of enemies.
