Frequently asked questions
Is the game out yet?
Not yet, but the Beta for Season 1 was available in the 2nd quarter of 2021. Currently, the Beta Playtest was removed by Steam, we are in the process of finding a new distribution playform for the game. The game is scheduled for release in 2022.
Where will the game be available?
in October 2021, the game was removed from Steam, we are in the process of selecting a new distribution platform for the game.
Do I need NFTs to play the game?
To play the basic game, you only need to link the Enjin wallet to the game, but you don't need any tokens to start.
However, the game has multiple reward levels for solving puzzles. To get access to the higher level reward puzzles and potential to unlock a bounty for additional NFTs, you need tokens.
Where can I purchase the NFTs to play the higher bounty levels?
Check the Enjin page for more details.
Some of your other games had crypto ciphers in them, do I need to know ciphers to solve the puzzles?
No you don't. There are no traditional crypto puzzles in Age of Rust, you're not required to blindly solve encryption or book ciphers for any of the puzzles. While some of the puzzles might require basic knowledge of math or the alphabet, many of the puzzles contain the hints and clues required to solve them, even though occasionally obscured.

Is the Beta out yet?
The beta was released on Steam in June 2021, however, the playtest can no longer be downloaded at the moment. We're in the process of finding a new distribution platform for the game. As soon as something is available, I'll make sure to tag everyone to let them know. The full game (Seasons 1 & 2) will be released in 2022.
Is the game free? Is the beta free?
The game will have an initial cost which unlocks Season 1. Seasons 2 & 3 will unlock by spending Rustbits to unlock them.
The beta playtest is free and requires no tokens to play. The beta playtest was recently removed from Steam and will have a new platform for the game soon.
Since the treasure hunts require gold cards (tokens in your enjin wallet), can I get those in the game without buying them?
Yes, there are some gold card tokens available as bounties in the game for solving special puzzles.
What happened with Steam?
Steam decided to remove Age of Rust from the Steam platfrom because NFTs can be sold for real-world currency off their platform. They have also updated their terms to block blockchain and NFTs from using the platform.
