Welcome everyone to the 11th annual Mod of the Year awards, a celebration of the best mods released in 2012 as well as the up and coming whom we hope edge towards release in 2013. For the next 30 days, it's time to recognize the dedication and creativty of so many hobbyist game developers who have given everything to their craft (which, in many cases amounts to years of development). 2012 was a massive year with horror mods like Cry of Fear and the hotly anticipated Black Mesa pushing our servers to their absolute limits with over 300,000 people in one day, all trying to play.

We expect the 2012 Mod of the Year to be our biggest yet - so make yourself count by finding your favorite mods and voting for them! Who will join our first ever MOTY winner Natural Selection, who in 2002 took out the awards and 11 years later released a critially acclaimed best-selling sequel? Up until Jan 1st 2013 join us and help celebrate your community, culture and give thanks to the developers by voting for your favorite projects. Welcome to the 11th Annual Mod of the Year Awards (also check out our Indie of the Year awards and App of the Year awards).

Ladies and Germs these are your top 5 upcoming Mods for 2012.

Posted by on

From the 1st of December to the 21st we asked quite a bit of our community, we asked that you decide what mods you thought were are the top dogs for 2012. We tallied up the votes for best upcoming mods and arranged them into a top 5.

Ladies and Germs these are your top 5 upcoming Mods for 2012.



To qualify for the top 5, the game must place higher than it has in previous years and must have had a significant content/news update in 2012. Otherwise an honorable mention is given, which these teams have received:

Having come in third place for last years event Opposing Force 2 has just managed to place within the top 5 so they receive an honorable mention!


5Earth's Special Forces
is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

4Enderal
is a total conversion in development for Skyrim and the sequel to Nehrim: At Fate's Edge. The story of Enderal is not set in the Elder Scrolls world of Tamriel, but takes place in its own universe, creating a new, interesting world completely unrelated to Skyrim.

3Dawn of the Reapers
The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same.

2Sins of the Prophets
A Halo mod for the critically acclaimed Sins of a Solar Empire, that aims to capture the fast paced intensity of the Halo series.

1S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha
Dedicated modders are throwing themselves into recreating the early designs of the original Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl. Lost Alpha will be a mix of new content and some older assets from GSC's 2004 build of Shadow of Chernobyl.

I'm ******* happy for Dezowave and the entire team. I voted for this fabulous mod.
They deserved it since modding is the only way to have new STALKER content.
Good work STALKER mates.

Nice job for a STALKER mod to win. I would not have expect this from this community. Funny though how Lost Alpha is on place one and Misery is nowhere to be found. Both are on par in their awesomeness.

Misery is not an upcoming mod, because it's been released.

From the rules:
"To qualify for the top 5, the game must place higher than it has in previous years and must have had a significant update in 2012"

Misery does qualify for this.

This is a triumph.
I'm going to write here: "AWESOMENESS!"
It's hard to describe my happy reaction.
Dezowave's triumph!
Their calendar says "We'll make our dream!"
Far too good for all of us,
I hope, I'm right about this...

But there is no point in arguing about any delay
Because we know that they work until they make a real Cake
And Lost Alpha gets done
(And this Cake is not a lie!)
And we'll play it pretty soon
And all people who loves the LA!

And when it's done It will be very nice!
And when we'll play it will be very nice!
(And when we'll enter a dungeon we will say "Oh shi...")
And when we'll finish the story there will be surprise!
And then freeplay after story will start with some extra quests!
Very nice! Very ni~
GET OUT OF HERE, GLAD STALKER!


Congrats to the other winners :)
