Steam to Host Mods

This week's Steam Marketing message has word that beginning this week, Steam will begin offering modifications, or MODs as they put it. Word is: "The first five MODs to ship on steam will be Age of Chivalry, D.I.P.R.I.P., Insurgency, Synergy, and Zombie Panic. As always, owners of any Source game will be able to download and play all of these MODs for free." Mods hosted on Steam will also use Steamworks for stat tracking and other community integration.

I second ..err.. third that. AWESOME NEWS. And may I say it's about damn time. This is what platforms like Steam are made for. I can't wait for the inevitable spike in modding now that there is a universal archival platform for all modders.

I am interested to see how the mod "approval" process works. I wouldn't think they would allow just any mod, but I think that any quality mod, regardless of scope or size, should make it.
