Its the year of the Rat as Facepunch Studios celebrates the Lunar New Year with a new content update for Rust, the popular sandbox survival game for PC (and arriving later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One).
The Lunar New Year Update, going live today at 7pm GMT, lets players get their hands on assortment of items to celebrate the occasion, with new items and returning favourites being added to the marketplace, including fireworks, firecrackers, a brand-new new instrument, cosmetics and returning items.
Rat Mask: Embody the year of the Rat with the brand-new Rat Mask, now available in the market
Fireworks: Give the gift of joy, bright lights and loud noises as fireworks are now available for crafting, including roman candles, volcanos and boomers (no we won’t say it). Grab your friends and celebrate the Lunar New Year in style by lighting up the skies with the electric igniter! Firecrackers can also be found for those who are vertically-challenged.
Deployable Gong: Speaking of loud noises, a Deployable Gong has also been added, complementing the recent instrument DLC. Shoot or hit it!
Returning items: returning to the market is the Dragon Door Knocker and Dragon Mask. Add some seasonal flare to your bases, or look like a badass dragon, the choice is yours
