If you've been eagerly awaiting the release of Rust Console Edition on Xbox this May, then you'll probably be excited to know that the pre-order beta has gone live today, available all the way until May 6.

Sadly, the only way to access this beta is via the Deluxe and Ultimate editions of the game, both of which are available to pre-order on the Microsoft Store right now for £49.99 / $59.99 and £69.99 / $79.99 respectively.

It's one for the hardcore fans, then, but we will start to see a lot more footage of the game cropping up over the next few days and weeks, as footage is allowed to be shared from the beta this time around. Hopefully it goes down well!
