Microsoft has updated the Xbox (Beta) app on Windows PC. The store is how you access Xbox Game Pass on PC and other Microsoft titles that haven't been released on Steam, for those that didn't know.

Users of the beta app have been asking for mod support and Microsoft has listened with the latest update. They announced games in the app would get mod support and now a new update has added mod support, according to Windows Central

There is currently only one game available on the beta app to feature mod support, which is the indie strategy game by Subset Games, Into the Breach. On the store page for the game you can select "Enable Mods." When you click it there is warning that says Microsoft is not responsible for any issues a mod might cause, including breaking the game or the game's age rating.

Once mods have been enabled for Into the Breach you can then hit the menu next to the "Play" button, which sends you to the game's file structure. There is currently no mod store or area on the app, so you will have to go and find the mods yourself. Microsoft is likely working on adding a mod store to the app. 

Microsoft has been updating its Xbox software design with a new Xbox One home page earlier this year, the recently updated Xbox Game Bar, and recently leaked new Xbox store for consoles.

How many times now has Microsoft tried to establish a viable storefront on PC to compete with Steam?

Almost all of Xbox's future games are going to Steam in addition to Windows 10 (Xbox PC Store). The main purpose of this store is for Game Pass and the few games from Xbox that aren't on Steam. There are also some games that are "play anywhere" where you buy the Windows 10 version you get the Xbox One version for free and you share saves and achievements. You can also connect your Steam account to this store. Each storefront has something that can attract PC gamers to use. Steam for the most feature rich and most games, GOG for DRM free games, Epic for free games, and Xbox PC Store for Play Anywhere and Game Pass.
