Play Half-Life: Alyx as a more traditional shooter in this VR-free mod

Since the moment Half-Life: Alyx launched in VR, folks have been trying to detach it from its headset requirements. To be fair, I get it - that the first Half-Life game in a decade would be restricted to expensive tech felt a little demoralising. But this weekend, one modder brought that dream closer to reality by quietly releasing Pancake Base, a mod that aims to…

Feature: The army of modders is already doing their thing

Best Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord mods so far

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord has been around for a little while now, but its enormous popularity has been maintained by one very exciting thing: mods.At this early stage, there are naturally limits on what can be effectively modded without causing players a headache. The Bannerlord launcher has an integrated mod selection and sorting screen, and TaleWorlds have indicated on their forum that they expect modding…

Terraria’s massive final update, Journey’s End, is out today

Let it not be said that Terraria failed to go out with a bang. Dropping today, Journey's End is an exhaustive final update for Re-Logic's venerable block-building sandbox. But beyond new items, biomes, bosses and golf, Journey's End formalises mod support by releasing a fan-made kit as free DLC, putting Terraria's future in the hands of the folks still playing it ten years on.

Half-Life: Alyx gets proper mod tools and Steam Workshop support

Half-Life and modding are basically synonymous. Whether it's painstakingly remaking the original in Black Mesa or spawning entirely new multiplayer genres in Counter-Strike, Gordon Freeman's misadventures are as much a platform for new works as they are solid shooters in their own rights. This weekend, Valve brought Half-Life: Alyx back into that lineage with Steam Workshop support and the beta release of HL:A's editing tools.

Ride piggy-back on colossal boars in this Red Dead Redemption 2 mod

Y'all still riding horses out there? It's 1899, son, get with the times. A new, in-development Red Dead Redemption 2 mod has opened the stables to all manner of wild bears, boars cougars and more. After all, there ain't a sight in the West more terrifying than a grim outlaw with a fistful of bullets, nothing to lose, and 500 pounds of furious pork under…

SnowRunner devs want mod support, and mods, available from day one

If there are two things you probably shouldn't be sick of going into SnowRunner, it's trucks and snow. They're sort of essential parts of the chilly Spintires: MudRunner follow-up, right? But if you do get tired of 'em after heading into Saber Interactive's frosty truck sim, fret not. When it launches next week, SnowRunner should launch will full mod support - letting you get behind…

The butcher is back in this new The Witcher custom story

Well well, it's not every day (or year) that you see a new custom story mod for The Witcher. Yes, the original Witcher with the clunky combat and clunkier menus and questionable voice acting that is still pretty enjoyable despite all that. This new adventure is made in The Witcher 1 but takes place after the events of The Witcher 3. Geralt finds his way…

Here’s a shirtless Carlos mod for Resident Evil 3—you’re welcome

Alright, you've all beat the Resident Evil 3 remake once now, right? Time to add some juicy mods. I've found the perfect one for you to try first. It's a shirtless Carlos Oliveira. You're welcome. It's brought to us by modder "Tzarev"  with the simple but effective description: "Carlos' meaty pecs exposed." Yes, quite.

Check out three Sekiro players attempting modded co-op

So I've not actually played Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It's not strictly because there's no co-op. Given that I've played all three Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, I suppose it's not not because there's no co-op either. Behold! Modders have come to my rescue. Here are three players attempting to fight through a section all playing as the One-Armed Wolf.

Get enchanted by this Harry Potter RPG in Minecraft right now

Holy Hogwarts, look at this entire dang Harry Potter-themed RPG built inside Minecraft. This mod has been in the works for a while, building on a huge Hogwarts Minecraft build from several years back. What I enjoy most is how reminiscent it is of the (not great, as I remember) Harry Potter games of the earliest aughts. The entire modded adventure is now available to play…

This modder animated tons of furniture, food, and drinks in Stardew Valley

I'm always here for a nice Stardew Valley mod, especially one that's easy to slip into an existing save file without the pressure to start a brand new farm. Modder "Gervig91" has been hard at work on a suite of new mods that make a bunch of items in town just a bit more lively and sparkly. They've made animated versions of many of Stardew's…

Half-Life: Alyx’s level editor “is the team’s focus now”

Sandboxes are made for playing in and it's no wonder players are eager to get their hands dirty. Half-Life: Alyx has some of the most satisfying physics, and the level-editing tools Valve had planned to release with the VR game are sure to inspire some creativity. The Hammer editor didn't launch with Alyx as intended, but a Valve member has shared that it's the team's…

Rip and tear in third-person with this Doom Eternal mod

It feels criminal to do this to Doom Eternal. Doom is the ur-FPS. Not the first, by any means, but the most - the first-person shooter we've been chasing for decades. In their own act of heresy, though, modders have plucked the eyes from our Doom Slayer and hung them a few feet behind his rear, turning Doom Eternal's meaty in-your-face gorefest into a ludicrously…

Minecraft mod recreates the Earth to scale – and now it wants players to fill in the gaps

For as long as there's been Minecraft, there's been people who want to re-create the world in Minecraft. For one modder, though, it's not enough to have a to-scale replica of our pale blue dot recreated in Mojang's block-builder. A new project named Build The Earth is looking for talented builders with too much time on their hands, bringing them together to fully recreate every…

This pacifist mod lets you hug all of Stardew Valley’s monsters

Alright folks, Stardew Valley just wasn't pleasant enough. The animals are cute, the spouses are cute, and even the monsters are cute. But you do have to kill the monsters and that is decidedly not cute. You've got to whack them with increasingly edgy swords as you dive deeper into the mines beneath the mountain. Who are you to come into the monsters' territory and smack…

Play The Elder Scrolls: Arena as a distressingly muscular Garfield

I won't blame you if you don't click on this post. The image is horrifying—I know. If you pop on in here I promise I'll try to teach you a thing or so about Khajiit morphology using this ridiculous mod for The Elder Scrolls: Arena. If you can't see it for any reason, it's the head of Garfield, the 1978 version of the comic book character,…

Get in the bin, Geralt, and play The Witcher 3 as Mads Mikkelsen

Geralt's been having quite the romp since his new TV show popped up on Netflix. With the help of modders, he's gone and invaded just about every RPG in the last couple months. Alright then, while he's out slaying monsters in everyone else's games, this modder has ousted him from The Witcher 3, replacing the White Wolf with a different game man face. Mads Mikkelsen…

Dwarf simulation King Under The Mountain adds mod support

King Under The Mountain is a dwarven society simulation game that immediately gives away its Dwarf Fortress inspiration. It's currently still in early access and has just added support for player-made mods. The main game is actually built as a game engine with a "base game" mod applied to it, according to Rocket Jump Technology. The plan is for absolutely anything in the game to…
