UnrealKey is a tool for automatically finding the AES-256 decryption keys for Unreal Engine 4 encrypted pak files.
Pass the path to a game's executable as an argument to UnrealKey.exe, and it will launch the game and attempt to detect the loading and decryption of encrypted pak files. If successful, the decryption key(s) will appear in the output, usually within a few seconds of launching the game.

Currently, only 64-bit Windows games are supported.
Games using Steam DRM should work (without needing to manually create a
steam_appid.txt file), as long as the Steam client is open and logged in (and the game is actually in your library). If you're having trouble with a particular game, try running it through Steamless first.
Games using anti-cheat software will most likely not work, since this tool doesn't make any attempt to circumvent it.
This has not been tested with a large number of games yet. If you have a UE4 game that uses encrypted pak files and UnrealKey doesn't seem to detect the decryption keys correctly, please open an issue and include the entire output from the program (but also please be sure to note the above as well).
