    I am glad that the games will be able to have mods, too many companies these days fight against the modding community (looking at you ea). And unreal has always had great mod support. As a developer this makes me happy cause I can have players making mods in my game. Thanks for listening to the community and letting us do modding, p.s. Ark: Survival Evolved looks quite good.

                    This is incredibly exciting stuff. Unreal is going to make modding for this game really accessible if the game was developed with an eye toward readable code. Excited to take a peek under the hood!

                      What kind of games will be moddable? 2D? 3D? Puzzle?

                        I think mods are great! Often mods make bad games totally playable (Cough... ElderScrolls and Fallout) but I see there is a steam upload button... There will be other alternatives right? Can the upload button be moddable too LOL...

                        I do not support steam, use steam or otherwise do anything that brings them more users. Steam has a monopoly that I can't stand.They were smart though...

                            It's funny, I'd been considering adding mod support to my game recently, had no clue where to even start, and then suddenly I find this announcement here. Perfect timing Can't wait to add mod support to my game! Keep up the great work.

                              I can't wait to see modding support! I have been thinking about it for a long time.
