Left 4 Dead-inspired GTFO due to launch out of Steam Early Access next year

We’ve known about GTFO for a while. We first caught wind of the four-player survival shooter in 2017 when it was unveiled at The Game Awards. We then got a better look at GTFO when it hit Steam in Early Access at the tail end of 2019. It’s a tense and atmospheric co-op experience that meshes Alien-style horror with Left 4 Dead multiplayer. It’s also being worked on by some of the Payday 2 developers. GTFO developer 10 Chambers Collective doesn’t plan on staying in Early Access for too long, though, and is already thinking about a full release. “We are trying to not be in Early Access for too long, so we’re aiming for about a year,” co-founder Svante Vinternatt tells PCGN. “We haven’t released any Early Access games before, so this is a new experience for us.” That’s not to say that Vinternatt thinks work on the game will be done after a full launch. Come March 31 the horror game will get an update – or, as the studio calls it, a ‘rundown’. The next one includes ten new expeditions alongside more weapons and enemies. As Vinternatt explains, that’s the style of update the studio wants to persist with.

Garry’s Mod 2 is being teased by Garry Newman on Twitter

March 30, 2020 Facepunch Studios has confirmed the game being referenced is Sandbox.

It looks like Garry’s Mod 2 is in the works – sort of. The creator of the original Garry’s Mod – or GMod, for short – has teased that he’s “making GMod 2” on Twitter via a meme (that familiar Distracted Boyfriend one), but it seems the game he’s referencing is Sandbox. Garry Newman’s post on Twitter seems to tease he’s “making GMod 2”, as you can see below, though it’s not exactly confirmed at this stage. In a follow-up tweet the dev, who is based at Rust studio Facepunch in the UK, jokes: “Holy s***, thanks for the support, hope you’re not gonna be disappointed when you find out that GMod2 is an iOS match 3 game made in unity.” It’s not clear what form GMod 2 might take just yet, but we’re pretty sure it’s not that. However, we reached out to Facepunch and it seems the game being referenced in the tweets is actually Sandbox (or S&box), a new Unreal Engine tool the studio has been working on for several years. “Our intention with Sandbox is to take a powerful game engine (UE4 right now) and build a hotloading C# layer on top of it,” the site’s description of Sandbox reads.
