Just over a week after a devastating fire ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, French video game company Ubisoft revealed that it would be donating 500,000 euros to help with the reconstruction of the landmark as well as making its 2014 title Assassin’s Creed: Unity free to download on PC. Three million people have downloaded the game.
Unity, an entry in the long-running Assassin’s Creed action adventure franchise, features a painstakingly rendered re-creation of the Notre Dame cathedral. The game’s senior level artist Caroline Miousse told Destructoid in 2014 that she spent over two years rendering the in-game version of the cathedral. Unity is set during the French Revolution and presents notable French landmarks as they appeared during the time period.
Referencing the Notre Dame situation, Ubisoft stated that it “would be more than happy to lend our expertise in any way that we can to help with these efforts.”
