Xbox (Beta) Store on PC Adds Mod Support - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 06 June 2020 / 1,006 Views
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.
