EU Rust Servers Destroyed After OVH Data Center Fire

A fire at one of OVH’s data centers, located in Strasbourg, France, has affected a number of companies today, including Facepunch Studios and its hugely popular online survival game Rust.

The developer had earlier today noted on Twitter that EU servers had suddenly gone offline. After investigating the issue, it was discovered that a fire at OVH had destroyed building SBG-2, which housed Rusts’ servers. The incident has now rendered huge amounts of data permanently lost.

OVH is the largest hosting provider in Europe and the third-largest in the world. The cloud computing company provides dedicated servers, as well as other web services.

Replacement servers are already up and running, though, with EU servers now slowly coming back online at the time of writing. Unfortunately, players will have to endure a total reset of all game progress.

In related Rust news, Facepunch recently announced it will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this spring, developer Double Eleven announced today.
