Rust won't open

So, I opened Rust for the first time this week (Right after updating), and it won’t launch. The PlayRust Configuration file opens up, and as soon as I click ‘Play!’ it closes and the generic Crash window pops up:

Has this happened to someone before? How do I fix it? I’ve tried several times to open it.

[EDIT] Currently trying to reinstall rust.

OK, so I reinstalled the game and it still doesn’t work.

Exact same thing is happening to me. If you use -force-d3d11 as a launch option for it in steam it will work. but its not a great fix lots of lag.

Doesn’t work for me either and when i set the launch options to what you said it launches but with SHIT TON of lag(I have a gaming computer)!

same here :frowning: need help…

i got that today, to fix it i turned off dev branch then could log in.

i tried to go back to stable version and same thing over again game crash…

Same here. Turned off dev branch but still crashing -_-
