Everything about CrossPlay in Rust
What we know so far: Facepunch has not yet made any official statements regarding CrossPlay in Rust. However, according to the magazine thesixthaxis, it is known from the ongoing console beta that CrossPlay should be possible between the PS4 and Xbox One version. So you could already see in a menu that players from both consoles were on the same server.
It is not yet known whether CrossPlay will also occur between PC and console players. Facepunch or Double11 still have to officially comment on these circumstances.
