Overwolf and Intel launch $7 million mod fund

Money is available to developers of apps and services for existing games, to be distributed on Overwolf's app store

Overwolf has partnered with Intel on a $7 million fund for apps, extensions and overlays for popular games.

The company's app store distributes services for games like Fortnite, League of Legends and Dota 2, which can then be accessed without having to interrupt gameplay. The apps cover a variety of areas, including voice chat and messaging, social networks, and game guides and trainers.

"We continuously look for opportunities to help developers create awesome experiences that make today's top games even more fun to play," said Uri Marchand, CEO at Overwolf, in a statement.

Intel's John Bonini added. "Our collaboration with Overwolf further extends our ability to empower a new generation of developers to create compelling, exciting gaming software."

Marchand contributed an opinion piece to back in 2014, in which he argued that modders should receive more financial compensation for their work. You can read it here.
