Facepunch Studios gave the survival genre something special when they released Rust. A multiplayer-only game that is truly the embodiment of ‘survival of the fittest’, players are dropped into the wilderness with next to nothing, just a rock, and a torch, and must do whatever they need to make it to the end. That means cannibalizing other players, staying well-fed, building bases, killing bears and/or wolves, and more. But if you’re a fan of the game, you already know that.
