If you love Garry’s Mod but you want to play something new, then you’re in luck. Garry’s Mod spiritual successor S&box (yes, it’s pronounced “sandbox”) enters open beta next week, so if you want to get stuck in, you don’t have long to wait until you can test the game out.
How do you get into the S&box open beta?
S&box developer Garry Newman announced the availability of beta keys for the game yesterday via Discord. Rather than giving you a Steam key, the beta will rely on an external site that will verify your Steam account based on your ID. This means the devs have absolute control over who’s authorized to access the beta, so if anyone does something untoward, their access can be revoked immediately. When the beta does become available, all you’ll need to do is head over to the official S&box website to gain access.
