has added the first female models to survival sandbox Rust, but they're not quite ready to roll out to everyone just yet. Instead, they'll be reserved for sever admins until the developer has finished creating alternate clothes and so on.
"The female model is in. But not actually. We still have some stuff to work out, like making alternate clothing models for her, but if you’re an admin on a server you’ll be the female model," writes studio founder Garry Newman in the latest
"To clear up some confusion, when it does go live you won’t get a choice of whether you’re female or male. We’re not “taking the choice away” from you. You never had a choice. A man’s voice coming out of a woman’s body is no more weird than an 8 year-old boy’s voice coming out of a man’s body."
Newman also discusses the game's use of the, which some fans are concerned about. He reassures fans that all the customisation items that Facepunch are adding will be free, and will be rewards for playtime and achievements rather than paid DLC. Blueprints for creating new items won't be sold for the time being, though Newman doesn't rule this out in the future.
"The idea is that you can play Rust for a while and get a bunch of blueprints," he writes. "If you get duplicates you’ll be able to trade them for blueprints that you don’t have or sell them to lazy rich people. And because the marketplace is a common market you can go to the inventory and trade your blueprints, a bunch of CS:GO guns and some TF2 hats for a copy of Bad Rats. That’s the future."
