    MechWarrior 5 is the first game to roll mod support into its Epic Games Store page as Epic moves the feature into beta testing.

    The Epic Games Store has been slowly trialing and launching new features since its somewhat barebones debut back in 2018, and mod support looks to be one of the latest developments Epic is looking to bring to its Steam competitor.

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries launched mod support on its Epic Games Store page this week, noting in a blog post that the game is the very first to do so under the freshly launched Epic Games Store Mods beta.

    There’s a dozen or so mods already listed for the game, created either by the MCM Team themselves or by community modders. For those looking to bring their own mods to the Epic Games Store, or for developers curious about how the whole process works, MechWarrior 5’s listing now includes a Modding Toolkit tab that explores the ins and outs of the process.
