Assassin's Creed: Unity is free for a week after Notre-Dame fire
Ubisoft is showing solidarity with those in France, donating €500,000 to the reconstruction efforts at the same time.
Earlier this week we reported that players had been revisiting Assassin's Creed: Unity to pay their respects to the cathedral of Notre-Dame after the fire that engulfed it earlier this week, and now developer Ubisoft has announced that they're donating €500,000 to help with the restoration efforts.
While they also encourage everyone else to donate to the same efforts, as a way to show appreciation to the landmark in the virtual world Ubisoft is also giving Assassin's Creed: Unity away for free on PC for a week, which can be downloaded from Uplay right now.
"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," Ubisoft writes. "Video games can enable us to explore places in ways we never could have otherwise imagined. We hope, with this small gesture, we can provide everyone an opportunity to appreciate our virtual homage to this monumental piece of architecture."
