Paid Steam Mods, Mario Kart 8 DLC and Mad Max Gameplay

Apr 23, 2015

In video game news this week, Valve has created a new Steam page to allow mod creators to charge you for their work.

Steam Lets Mod Creators Charge Now

You know those mods for your PC games that you just download? Well Steam is about to give creators the option to charge for them. They started a new page for creators to make store listings and set prices.

Valve said, “Steam now offers new functionality in the Steam Workshop, allowing community mod makers the opportunity to earn money doing what they love. With this update, community-made Workshop content such as mods, items, or maps can now be made available for sale directly via the Steam Workshop for titles that have enabled this feature.”

“Workshop is now putting mod authors in business via a new streamlined process for listing, selling and managing their creations. Creators contributing to the Steam Workshop have the choice of listing their new creations for sale at a price of their choosing, or to continue to make their work available to players for free. Mods purchased from the Steam Workshop are available immediately for play.”
