Paradox Interactive and Microsoft have joined forces for Paradox Mods, a new Independent Modding Platform, on PC and Xbox One.

Paradox Mods, the new modding platform for PC and Xbox One, will allow you to download and play over 30 mods across platforms, starting with Surviving Mars.

The new incentive provides a distribution option for user-created mods across both platforms. It is available as a free update to survival-strategy game Surviving Mars today. You can check out what’s currently available through Paradox Plaza.

In addition to Paradox Mods, the Surviving Mars update adds mouse and keyboard support for the Xbox One version.

Paradox provided the following information on Paradox Mods in the press release.

For Players

  • Launching with over 30 mods tested and ready for console players for Surviving Mars, Paradox Mods includes projects from recognized creators within the modding community such as Silva and ChoGGi. Players now have even more ways to enjoy the survival strategy sim whether it’s adding a self-sufficient Forest Greenhouse or building a Martian Car Wash. Simply log into your Paradox Account from the Surviving Mars title screen, open the “Mod Manager” at the bottom of the screen to browse the mods catalog, then select mods that you want to play and the game will automatically download and add them to your playing experience.

For Modders

  • Paradox Mods is the first direct pipeline modders have to publish their work on consoles. Featuring in-game and web interfaces that enable easy distribution, Paradox Mods allows mod creators to submit their creation once and have it made available on every platform – no extra steps required.

More Paradox titles will be supported through Paradox Mods later this year.
