A Rust developer has revealed our first look at a new gameplay feature coming to the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X survival game. Next month, on February 4, Drones are coming to the reemerging multiplayer game. However, while February 4 is right around the corner, we actually haven't seen any gameplay footage of the feature in action, until yesterday at least.
Taking to Twitter, Alistair McFarlane, a producer on the game, has revealed our first look at Drones, and in turn revealed how they will work. As the video reveals, Drones will only be accessible via terminals, which will only be accessible via safezones.
Not only can drones not be player crafted, but the whole thing only works when vending machines are facing an open area. Below, you can check out the video for yourself, which reveals how it will all work.

As McFarlane notes, everything here is subject to change, which is always the case in game development. That said, it's hard to imagine any drastic changes being implemented if the feature is coming with the game's February 4 patch.
Rust is available via the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it's playable on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S via backward compatibility.
