GameMaker Studio 2 version 2.3.0 is now open to everyone!!
Just head over to your downloads page to get access to the 2.3 installers. It comes as a separate install to the stable version of GameMaker Studio 2 so no need to worry about removing your current version.
This major update introduces a huge number of improvements to the software, including: the new Sequences and Animation Curve asset types; a new, streamlined project format; the resource tree is now the Asset Browser and allows new ways of creating, managing, tagging, and filtering your assets; and all the many GML changes.
NOTE: Your projects will also be converted the first time you open them in 2.3.0, so you can also play with your projects safe in the knowledge you have a backup which still works in 2.2.5.
Reporting issues and feedback with version 2.3.0 should be done via our Help Community Forums.

Finally got my hands on Gamemaker v2.3. Very exciting as there are so many new toys to play with. Top work by @YoYoGames implementing some cool new features. Been playing with Sequences, and a short time later we end up with this. Should I be worried#gamemaker #gamedev #gms2 pic.twitter.com/V6NXcBSwrn— Slyddar (@Slyddar) May 15, 2020
