Those fan-made GoldenEye Far Cry 5 levels are back with a new name

I guess you can call it going undercover.

Last week we heard that several fan-made GoldenEye levels in Far Cry 5 had been pulled by Ubisoft following a copyright claim, but it seems the author has now reuploaded the levels under a new name - which will hopefully be enough to ensure the levels stay up in future.

After confirming the levels had been pulled, creator Krollywood said a few days ago he intended to "change some details like names and re-upload them as soon as possible," and it seems that's now happened. Krollywood confirmed in a Reddit comment that the levels have been reuploaded to Far Cry 5's arcade mode under the name "Golden Cry". To find them on PS4 you'll need to search for the creator name "Perfect-Dark1982", and on PC the creator name is "Graslu00".

Krollywood spent two and a half years recreating the 18 GoldenEye 007 levels in Far Cry 5's level editor, and you can hear a little about how he did it in the video below:

The levels were initially pulled by Ubisoft due to a copyright claim from a "rights holder". Ubisoft didn't name the company behind the copyright claim in its statement to Kotaku, but Krollywood said it was from MGM (the studio behind the Bond films). Kotaku also noted the claim seemed harsh given Krollywood had made all the levels using Far Cry 5's in-game map editor, and Krollywood was not profiting from the levels.

It's not the first time MGM has stepped in to take down James Bond fan projects: last year a GoldenEye 25 fan remake in Unreal Engine 4 was cancelled mid-development, with the developer explaining he had been "kindly asked by the IP holder (MGM/Danjaq) to cease development of GoldenEye 25". Hopefully Krollywood's decision to change the name of his levels will be enough to prevent MGM from pulling the trigger again.
