Hello everyone,

The next Garry's Mod update is coming soon!

The current plan is to release the next Garry's Mod update on 14th of October at the usual 4PM GMT.
The update will be mandatory for all server owners, so mark the date and time. Servers will need to be updated before people can join them again.

You can preview the list of upcoming changes here:

Please note this list is still work in progress and is subject to change.
(Changes marked with (Networking Change) are not currently available for testing, but will be included into the test branches on Monday (12th of October), and will be included in the actual update)

Help us test the update
