Crytek forces Patreon-supported Crysis Remastered photo mode mod offline

The Universal Unreal Unlocker is a mod created by Frans “Otis_Inf” Bouma that brings a powerful photo mode to a long list of Unreal Engine 4 games. It’s a genuinely impressive piece of software that enables videogame photographers to capture images far beyond conventional screenshots. Last year he also created similar, separate mods for Crysis Remastered 2 and 3, which he offered (along with the latest version of UUU) through his Patreon. But those Crysis mods are no longer available: Crytek has asked Bouma to take them down.

The takedown request came from Crytek PR manager Adam Grinsell, who told Bouma that the EULAs for both games do not allow for mods. Because of that, Grinsell asked that Bouma “remove the mods from your Patreon page, and anywhere else they appear for availability.” He also warned that if they weren’t taken down within seven days, the matter would be referred to Crytek’s legal department.
