After shutting down on January 1st, 2012, I’m proud to announce that GMod Tower is back once again and better than ever. Today we have launched our public beta and it is now fully available to everyone who has a copy of Garry’s Mod. We have also released a new gamemode, Zombie Massacre, a top-down zombie arcade shooter frenzy. You can view the gamemode’s new trailer below.
What is GMod Tower?
GMod Tower is a project that combines many different genres of gamemodes together into one central hub, the lobby. GMod Tower, as a lobby, features personal suites, tons of player customizations, store full of interesting items, theater, arcades, events/parties, achievements and milestones, and lots of other great things for you to enjoy with your friends.
So What’s New With Tower?
We have made an entire page dedicated to all the changes that have occurred. You can visit this page at: http://www.gmtower.org/beta/

A Little Something For Those That Remember GMT
I’m sure you all remember GMod Tower, you know, the lobby based gamemode that featured different other gamemodes all interconnected together to form a unique experience on GMod. Since the shut down, we have been completely changing the experience. The gamemode is no longer plagued by the issues of the past. We do not tolerate admin abuse, we don’t support/allow any misconduct by our staff, we don’t give out items to random people, and a lot of other terrible previous things don’t exist on the server and are not done to the server. We have cleaned up all the bullshit. Our goal is to provide a good experience for every person. Including all the above, we have reset our entire database, meaning you will have to start from scratch again. However this time, it will be a better experience, and thus, more fun.
Okay, So How Do I Play?
You’ll need to download the content, available on http://www.gmtower.org/index.php?p=downloads. After downloading all the content, you can connect to our servers via the IP: join.gmtower.org -or- 220.127.116.11:27015
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you all in GMod Tower once again!
