Mod of the Year

Back for a 17th time, welcome to the 2018 Mod of the Year Awards. You will find no loot boxes, microtransactions, unlockables or DLC here - just amazing free mods made by dedicated creators for your enjoyment. For the next 4 weeks it is up to you to vote for your favorite mods so that they may make the top 100 which will be announced on the 11th of December.

There was plenty of blood & gore to go around last year, with the fan favourite Brutal Doom claiming top spot on the podium. Coming in second was the galactic spectacle Starwars II: Thrawn's Revenge II: Ascendancy followed by an alternative C&C timeline in the Twisted Insurrection modification. If you need a refresh of how last year's awards went down head on over to the top 10 countdown's for both players and editors to see who stood out among the pack.

Show your support and start smashing those vote buttons for your favorite mods (and if your favorite mod isn't listed encourage the team to add it). Developers need to feel the overwhelming power and groundswell of support for mods, which drive so much creativity and goodwill in games of all shapes and sizes. There's been some huge releases this year, make your vote count and we look forward to seeing who will climb to the top, and be crowned the 2018 Mod of the Year.

December has begun around the world which means voting booths are live on all mod profiles, and it's time for the players to nominate the 2018 Mod of the Year.

Posted by on


The 2018 Mod of the Year awards have officially begun! This event is a celebration of the tireless dedication of the mod community, and aims to highlight the incredible work that has been produced by them throughout the year.

Modders Are Keeping The Dream Alive

The importance mods play in shaping the gaming landscape is more significant today than it has ever been. We've known this for a long time, after all the most popular games on ModDB have legacies that date back over 10 years, in some cases 20 years - and those legacies are stronger than ever because of incredible mods that keep coming out. It's great to see more studio's than ever before opening up their development tools and allowing the community to create new content for fellow players to enjoy. We'd like to see more total conversions and more open mod platforms (like that we are creating *shameless plug*), to help games thrive that choose to implement mod support.

But right now the most important thing is that it's December, and it's time for all visitors to ModDB to make it known how much we appreciate modders and their efforts, by voting for our favourites to determine the best released, and best upcoming, mods of 2018.

Phase 1: Nominations Begin

From now, over the next 10 days, voting will be open for every mod on the site. Simply visit that mod’s mod profile to find the voting booth, and click “vote now” to vote for that particular mod if you think it’s worthy of making into the final Top 100.

Phase 2: The Top 100

The day after voting closes, on December 11, the Top 100 mods will be unveiled, calculated from those user votes over the previous 10 days. A new round of voting will then begin, with users voting over the next 10 days to determine which of those Top 100 mods is worthy of being crowned Mod of the Year.

Phase 3: Mod of the Year 2018 Awarded

With those final votes calculated, as we move closer to Christmas, the winners will gradually be revealed over the following stages:

Promote Your Mod To Help Get Votes!

Modders, you should make as much noise about your game as possible to get it in front of potential voters! Luckily, we've created some tools to help you do just this.

Win Games for Voting

Every member from the community who votes has a chance to win a game from our #modlove collection. The more you participate, promote the awards and encourage your friends to vote the better your chance. In addition to this the winning mod teams will be heavily promoted across our network, get the prestigious honor of being able to include the award badge where-ever they damn well please, and be introduced to publishers interested in taking their idea to the next level.
