Epic Games Store Finally Adds Mod Support

The Epic Games Store recently began testing achievement functionality by adding an early form of the highly requested feature to Ark: Survival Evolved. Now, the storefront has introduced another important feature in the form of mod support for MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries.

Much like the Epic Games Store’s achievements, this is an early implementation of a feature that will eventually make its way to more games as Epic irons out the kinks. An update has rolled out to support the newly added feature, and there are already numerous mods available to download.

Mod support is now in beta on the Epic Games Store, starting with Mechwarrior 5.

This is an early iteration of the feature, but you can expect to see more titles supported in the future. Keep an eye out! https://t.co/Pmgy9tkI8O
