Ubisoft has removed the Far Cry 5 fan-created GoldenEye 007 levels, which were created by a player using the game’s level editor, Far Cry Arcade.
Ubisoft has removed several GoldenEye 007 levels of Far cry 5. The levels were created by a fan, using the game’s level editing suite known as Far away Arcade. Map maker Krollywood had faithfully recreated the Nintendo 64 classic within the Ubisoft 2018 title, and the project took around three years to complete. Far away Arcade is a map editor with which players can create their own maps for solo, co-op and PvP multiplayer games, but Ubisoft and MGM have objected to the player recreating an existing title.
Far cry 5Arcade mode is a fan favorite as it allows players to get creative by editing and creating their own maps long after the main campaign is complete. Arcade mode includes assets from previous titles in the series, as well as assets from other Ubisoft franchises, including Assassin’s creed. Has been confirmed Far Cry 6 will not have Arcade mode, in a move with a developer described as “a difficult decision.” The Far cry 5 The map editor still has a thriving community, with many players enjoying exploring the maps and worlds devised by others. The mode offers many different tools, which inspired YouTuber Krollywood to recreate GoldenEye 007.
According to KotakuKrollywood’s unofficial passion project took approximately 1,400 hours to complete, and the final product was a near-perfect remake of the 1997 Nintendo game. Ubisoft removed the fan-created levels on June 24, and players noted that they were absent from Far away Arcade. In a statement, Krollywood confirmed that the levels had disappeared, citing MGM as the main cause. The creator explained:
“Ubisoft sent me an email because they received one from MGM. It’s really sad, but my work is not deleted because I saved my levels on PS4 / 5, PS + Cloud and USB Stick. I don’t know if there is a way to upload them again, because I think I’m on their radar now. “
Reply to a comment about Youtube, Krollywood expressed some hope that the project could be re-established, writing: “Maybe a relaunch is possible, only with some small changes in names like ‘GoldenEye’, ‘Natalya’, etc. The GoldenEye 25 project was also stopped by MGM. But they continue the work only with new characters. Perhaps it is the solution for me …..“
It is worth noting that the Krollywood version Golden eye within Far away 5Arcade mode did not use any assets owned by MGM. The creator only used Ubisoft’s assets and code available in the map editor, which means the company likely had problems with the names rather than the design. In a statement to Kotaku, Ubisoft said: “We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we expect our users to do the same. This matter is currently with the creator of the map and the rights holder and we have nothing else to share at this time.“
As Krollywood points out, this isn’t the first time MGM has cracked down on a fan remake of GoldenEye 007. Creator Ben Colcough began remaking the game in Unreal Engine 4 in 2018, before MGM asked Colcough to halt development. The project canceled, GoldenEye 25, is still being created under the new title of Spies, although it no longer has any character associated with the MGM IP. A new and official James Bond game is in development with IO Interactive, the studio behind Hitman series, although it is not likely that it is connected to the N64 game.
