Initial results have been excellent, as of 9.30am GMT there have been an incredible 25,000+ mod downloads across PC Games Pass and Xbox. This becomes a reality thanks to mod.io, which one of the best platforms for user-generated content created by ModDB.
According to the official Press Release:
Besiege, a physics building game developed and published by Spiderling Studios, launches with UGC sharing support on Xbox consoles and full mod support for PC Games Pass this week.
Creating & sharing war machines is at the very core of what Besiege is. Having a robust and powerful workshop where players can exchange their designs and mods is an essential tool for the community. We’re excited to see the fantastic community creations this new chapter of Besiege will bring! – said Matt Woolven, Company Director of Spiderling Studios.
Thanks to mod.io, Besiege propels a modding opportunity for Xbox One and PC. Mod.io currently holds over 600,000 pieces of mod content made by players, which have been downloaded over 100M times in 2021.
