Mod.io surpasses 300 million downloads

Mod.io is heralding the arrival of premium UGC with huge annual growth showing a near 300% increase in mods created.

Mod.io is celebrating the coming of premium user-generated content with an annual growth rate of over 300 percent. In addition, Mod.io has revealed that they have reached a significant milestone. Official modifications have been downloaded 300 million times on the web platform for user-generated content (UGC).

Overwhelming growth

Since its inception in 2019, the site has seen a 5,000-fold increase in UGC downloads compared to game downloads on major retailers for current PC, console, and VR platforms. This is due to the over 10 million users that are continually downloading and spreading UGC, which is growing quickly inside the site.

“Six mods were downloaded every second on mod.io in 2021. More than half were on console – a first mod experience for many players,” said CEO and Co-Founder of mod.io, Scott Reismanis. 

“The average console player will download more than 20 pieces of official mod content monthly, and one in three players who own titles supported by mod.io are using official mod content,” he added.

More than 90 games have utilized mod.io since its inception in 2019, including Skater XL, Deep Rock Galactic, Humankind, Fireworks Mania, and SnowRunner. By pioneering the use of modifications in games across PC, console, mobile, and VR platforms, mod.io assists studios in growing their creative communities.

Mod.io anticipates that the year 2022 will enable them to expand UGC inside the platform, perhaps allowing them to surpass the 500 million download mark.
