Blitzkrieg I, have you played any World War II game on your computer, but left it feeling kinda empty inside? Did you wish that you could build factories and command a squad of Panzers rolling across the plains to crush your foe? All that is exactly what Blitzkrieg I does. It is a total conversion of Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge that turns it into a massive World War II real time strategy game. You can choose to either fight as the economical Allies, the mighty Germans or the industrious Russians in a battle for the domination of Europe. With the release of version 3.0, Blitzkrieg I "Classic" will be turned into a mile stone in the Command & Conquer modding community, it will not only provide the player with a completly new interface, three unique sides and a sound track produced purely for the use in the mod. Blitzkrieg will also be provided with a new challenging AI, a historical campaign and more stable online play. The Sequel to Blitzkrieg I, Blitzkrieg II is located...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Blitzkrieg I. We love games like C&C: Yuri's Revenge that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
