For this recurring segment, we will be highlighting the five biggest stories on ModDB for the prior week. Whether it's new mod announcements, major mod releases, or important stories that affect the mod scene as a whole, you'll find them rounded up here each week.
The Week of April 20 2018
Get ready for the most hardcore military shooter simulation ever made. Heroes Unleashed is a mod for the original Ghost Recon, the game that kicked off the realistic shooter series back in 2001. Its creator, Apex Mods, has seen the more accessible direction the later Ghost Recon games have taken, and has been working since 2002 on a mod that not only returns to the original game’s form, but goes above and beyond in creating a realistic tactical military shooter.
Fallout: New California adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a journey through the wastelands of the New California Republic's Cajon Pass. An unofficial prequel to New Vegas, FPB adds hours of new gameplay and a fully voiced stand alone campaign.
A massive story expansion for Skyrim with 30+ hours of original content. Visit the valley of Druadach and embark on an epic quest to bring peace to this war-torn region. The mod adds a new region, three faction questlines, non-linear quests, dungeons, new weapons/armor and more. Your actions will determine the fate of Druadach Valley. For better... or for much worse.
Unofficial remake of a singleplayer mod "Azure Sheep" for Half-Life 1 With great exclusion, everything that does not correspond to the canons of the original game will be cut out
The new Assassin's Creed Origins update allows players to customise or "mod" the game on the go. Ubisoft recently announced the Animus Control Panel (ACP), a new tool that can be used to create your own unique game experiences by tweaking some game parameters of the game.
