Garry's Mod 13 Beta

What is Garry's Mod 13 Beta?

Garry's Mod is a sandbox physics game using a modified Source engine. Garry's Mod has been available on Valve's content delivery service, Steam. Garry's Mod used to require the user to own at least one game on Steam based on the Source engine. It is also commonly used for the creation and publishing of videos on YouTube. Garry's Mod was originally a modification for Valve's Half-Life 2, but was later made into a standalone Steam game. Although Garry's Mod is usually considered to be a full game, it has no game objective and players can use the game's set of tools for any purpose. Garry's Mod allows players to manipulate "props" – various objects that players can place in-game. Props can be selected from any installed Source engine game or from a community created collection. The game features two "guns" – Physics Gun and Tool Gun for manipulating objects. Garry's Mod takes advantage of the Source engine's modified version of the Havok Physics Engine, which allows players to build contraptions that follow the laws of physics. Garry's Mod supports multiplayer gameplay on dedicated game servers. Players can build contraptions together and communicate via text or voice.
