Microsoft is finally enabling native mods in PC games sold on the Xbox store. Right now the feature is in beta testing phases and isn't ready for widespread public release (just like the app itself), and Microsoft warns users of certain restrictions while using mods. This is basically analogous to Steam Workshop mods, complete with in-app mod folder navigation. Right now only a few games support mods, including strategy game Into the Breach.

Enabling mods in the app could interfere with specific service functions and features, and could disrupt gameplay updates:

  • Xbox LIVE features may not work
  • Future updates may be incompatible with mods
  • Modded content may not be shareable on Xbox LIVE

You can download the new Xbox beta app here and try it out for yourself.
