Nexus Mod Manager (also known as “Vortex”) is the official open-source mod manager for Nexus Mods, a popular online website that allows users from all around the world to upload and download custom modifications for PC video games.

Ranging in their functionality from small custom configuration files that unlock hidden game features to large multi-gigabyte total-conversion mods that can change every visual, audio, and gameplay aspect of the game, Nexus Mods very quickly became home of over 500 thousand of mods for (as of early 2024) over 2600 supported games.

While the vast majority of the mods and supported games requires users to manually download, install and manage their mods, Nexus Mod Manager is a highly useful companion app that can help download, manage, install and uninstall mods for over 60 of the most popular games on Nexus Mod website, including hits such as Dark Souls, Fallout, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, The Witcher 3, and many others. It has built-in integration with modern browsers that allows single-click acquisition of new mods, an intuitive interface for managing all the mods for your detected games, auto-sorting, mod profiles, expanded functionality with plugins, customizable UI elements, save game manager, and much more.

Originally released in 2015, Nexus Mod Manager received numerous updates and extensions of its capabilities. As of 2019, this app was renamed Vortex, which introduced a greatly redesigned user interface and brought new tools for faster and easier mod handling, organization, installation, and uninstallation of mods. In addition to serving as a great mod organization tool, Nexus Mod Manager/Vortex can also serve the role of the game launcher for your library of supported games.

Nexus Mod Manager app is 100% free and can be easily run on any modern PC that can handle the games that are supported by this mod management app.
