Numerous user-made modifications have been created for each of the Total War Series games from the first Medieval: Total War onwards. Many players are content with the experience given by the original games (and the DLCs and expansions) as created by CA, however, many players choose to use modifications which expand, improve or completely change the game content. The amount that can be achieved by a modification varies per game. Rome: Total War and Medieval II: Total War are widely regarded as the most versatile and modifications for those games can form "total-conversions" which transport the player to a whole new universe or era. Later games based on the Warscape engine tend to have less potential due to limitations to the way the campaign map can be changed. Due to licensing restrictions modifications for the Total War: Warhammer series have to remain true to the Warhammer lore as published by Games Workshop.

The Total War Center has forums and sub-forums dedicated to modifications for each of the games. The modifications found there range from large mods with their own hosted forum, to released minor mods or sub-mods, and to work-in-progress (WIP) mods or mod ideas. Nearly all Rome: Total War and Medieval II: Total War mods have a presence at TWC. For some later games, the availability of Steam Workshops has meant some mods no longer prioritise a forum presence. Mods have also diversified the areas where they choose to interact with fans, with some opting for Reddit, Discord, Facebook, or MODDB.

TWC holds Modding Awards each year for mods with a presence on the forum, mod users nominate and vote for their favourite mod, the awards forum can be viewed here.

TWC posts regular Modding News and Announcements which include news of new mod releases and updates. For a compilation of the News Team's recent modding announcements see Modding News Front Page Announcements 2020 and 2019.
