In this contribution I will discuss how lattice simulations can be used to determine thermodynamic properties of physics beyond the standard model. Using the density of states method I analyse deconfinement in $Sp(4)$ pure Yang-Mills theory and demonstrate it's first order nature through the characteristic swallow-tail structure in the free-energy.
