In the wake of the Notre-Dame fire that has recently gutted the iconic building, Ubisoft have donated €500,000 to aid the rebuilding project. They are also giving PC users the opportunity to grab a copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity for free.
Unity contains an incredibly detailed model of Notre-Dame within the game and will allow players to see and explore this important historical building in all of its glory.
“As the smoke clears on the events that unfolded on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris, we stand in solidarité with our fellow Parisians and everyone around the world moved by the devastation the fire caused. Notre-Dame is an integral part of Paris, a city to which we are deeply connected. Seeing the monument in peril like this affected us all.
In light of Monday’s events, we will be donating €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of the Cathedral. We encourage all of you who are interested to donate as well. In addition, we want to give everyone the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame the best way we know how. For one week, we will be giving Assassin’s Creed Unity away free on PC, for anyone who wants to enjoy it.
When we created Assassin’s Creed Unity, we developed an even closer connection with this incredible city and its landmarks – one of the most notable elements of the game was the extraordinary recreation of Notre-Dame.”
Assassin’s Creed Unity will be available for free until April 25th at 8am BST.
