Rust Start up

So i have been playing Legacy Rust until this morning and tried the play the new version of it. The only problem is the game will simply not load. The application opens but leaves me with a black screen and my mouse cursor. I was wondering if any of you have had this problem. If so any idea on how to fix this? Thanks

I have literally been having the exact same problem since last tuesday. i Have tried every single thing everybody has told me to. Reinstalling the game, deleting unity cache, turning off firewall, opting out of beta updates, updating my video card. I also have a 64 bit with 8gb of ram. which according to every where ive read is perfect for playing it. I am so goddamn frustrated

I am having this same issue ever since “new” Rust became the default. Patiently awaiting a fix.
