These modders are building a “direct sequel” to Dark Souls

There's nothing quite like the first time you play Dark Souls. Sure, you can go back with new builds, try a new weapon or go for a no-hit run, but you'll never quite recapture the feeling of not knowing what's around the next corner. That's why a group of modders have decided to go and make their own Dark Souls "sequel", Nightfall, offering a whole…

A Total War Saga: Troy will be moddable via Epic later this month

As a strategy retelling of an ancient Homeric epic, the events of A Total War Saga: Troy are certainly up for reinterpretation - with one foot firmly rooted in myths while the other tentatively tiptoes around historical fact. Soon, though, you'll be able to bring your own twists on the Trojan war to fruition, with official mod support arriving at the gates of Troy via…

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord finally gets proper mod tools

Muster the mod-makers! Official modding tools have finally arrived in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord with bespoke editors and toolsets for the feudal romp entering open beta today. While the lack of these tools hasn't stopped stubborn modders from taking a crack at Bannerlord, it should now be easier than ever to bash together your own weird twist on TaleWorld's sword-swinging sequel.

The Fallout Miami mod is looking hot in this new trailer

These ghouls certainly don't need any more sun, but perhaps your Vault 111 escapee could use a bit of heat to even out those dweller tan lines. Biggo modding project Fallout Miami recently put out a new trailer for their "DLC-sized" addition to Fallout 4 showing some of the toasty new locales you'll be able to explore when it launches.

What if Halo 3’s multiplayer was flooded with rats, though?

343 are finally getting weird with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and that's great. But they were never going to hold a candle against the game's modders, who've lately decided what Halo 3 really needs is to turn everyone into a rat. That's exactly the premise behind Rat Slayer, an upcoming mod that - daft as it is - never dared to consider whether John…

This mod lets you conquer Skyrim with a horde of tiny Fall Guys

What's your favourite Fall Guys minigame? See Saw? Door Dash? That weird thing with the eggs? I, for one, prefer the one where your merry band of tic-tacs slay the elder dragon Alduin. Now I understand that's not a very "official" route to claiming a crown or two - but thanks to modder m150, you can now traipse around The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special…

This huge Fallout: New Vegas mod replaces 145 NPC voices with new actors

If you've played Fallout: New Vegas a handful of times you've almost certainly done a double take once or twice when you recognise the voice of a character. Wait, didn't I meet you already? You had a different face then. The voice talent in New Vegas can be spread a bit thin at times, with some actors portraying quite a few characters. This overhaul mod…

Morrowind-to-Skyrim overhaul Skywind returns with a new trailer

Crikey, it's been a hot minute since we last heard anything about Skywind, hasn't it? Nevertheless, the colossal task of bringing all of Morrowind into Skyrim is still well underway, with the modders behind the project releasing our first look at the ambitious mod in over a year, by way of a spruced-up return to The Battle at Nchurdamz. Hope your arachnophobia doesn't extend to…

Feature: The army of modders is already doing their thing

Best Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord mods

Mount and Blade 2 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…

Microsoft Flight Simulator will have an in-game marketplace for add-ons

Microsoft Flight Simulator is going to be so darn large that you'll be able to fly all over the world and land on a gagillion airstrips but the world is not enough, eh Mr. Bond? That giant simulation won't stop creators from adding to and tweaking the game. Asobo Studio say they know how important unofficial add-ons are for Flight Sim, so they're adding an…

Mow down bosses with a boomstick in this Dark Souls 3 mod

What was your last build in Dark Souls 3? I'm partial to axes myself, though I've had a lot of success in moving to whopping huge greatswords as of late. For my next run, though, I think I'm gonna try something new - blapping my way through Lothric with a sawn-off, filling every undead goon on the walls with buckshot thanks to this ridiculous new…

Feature: When life gives you no dragons, make a dragon

Modders are making ambitious things in Bannerlord, even without modding tools

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has only been around for a few months, but that’s plenty of time for modders to have a good tinker. We’ve already been blessed with a bounty of minor Bannerlord mods: there are hundreds of ways to tweak, alter and optimise your experience, and the option to turn your character into a sword-swinging, death-dealing toddler is not to be sniffed…

Of course somebody recreated PT as a VR mod for Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life's always had horror in its veins. From body-horror aliens lurching down steel corridors to Ravenholme's infested nest of parasites, sawblades and the living dead, the series has been pushing spooking with its shooting since day one. Sporting more intimate, high-fidelity spooks, Half-Life: Alyx is no exception - and with a modding kit out in the open, it was only a matter of time 'til…

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…

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…
