Rusty Metal is an absolutely epic Minecraft horror map that’s the end product of over three months of work and a great deal of Redstone programming by Samueliscool223 who’s also the creator behind The Darkest Hour which, of course, is an incredibly immersive Minecraft adventure map that came out a while ago. Rusty Metal is a map that, much like The Darkest Hour itself, is going to have you completely captivated from the moment you start playing with its expertly thought-out setting and plot and, once you’re hooked, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve experienced everything the map has to offer.
Plot and Gameplay
Rusty Metal is a map that takes place in Memphis in the 2040s and players get to play as Ryan Barrington, an officer of the law who’s taken up a job with a corporate entity. The job will feel fairly straightforward at first but, one day, you’ll end up stumbling on a crime scene left behind by a vicious serial killer who made short work of his victims and it’ll then be up to you to figure out who the killer was so you can put a stop to them immediately. The gameplay doesn’t have any complex elements so you should have no trouble with it as long as you’re familiar with the fundamentals of Minecraft.
Compatibility and Technical Aspects
The technical side of the map seems to be immaculate as there aren’t any major issues with the map that would hinder your experience and this is definitely quite the achievement in this particular case due to Rusty Metal’s emphasis on Redstone. The map is available for Minecraft 1.14.4 so this is the version of the game you’ll need to have installed in order to avoid compatibility troubles.
- Estimated game length ~10 minutes (fast) to ~40 minutes (everything’s explored).
- You can only play the map once, if you want to play again you’ll have to re-install it (it’s not designed to be played twice, because of redstone complications).
