Ubisoft has joined the list of companies donating to rebuild the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris following a fire that destroyed much of the church. The French developer has pledged $564 thousand USD to help with its restoration, joining the hundreds of millions of dollars donated by the combined efforts of numerous other French and international businesses. In addition, Ubisoft is offering a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity for PC to honor the landmark. Assassin’s Creed Unity recreated the Notre Dame cathedral to such a level of accuracy and detail that Engadget is reporting that the game may be of use in its reconstruction. The free copy of Unity runs until April 25. All you have to do is add the game to your account and it will be there forever.

Following the fire that damaged the Notre-Dame de Paris, Assassin’s Creed developer Ubisoft has announced it will be offering support in the restoration and reconstruction of the French landmark.

Of course, it will be some time before anyone can visit the cathedral again and experience it as intended. So, Ubisoft has decided to give everyone the next best thing.

In the wake of the tragic fire that caused extensive damage to the historic Notre-Dame Cathedral earlier this week, Ubisoft is stepping forward to lend financial aid to the restoration efforts for the iconic Parisian landmark. The Paris-based studio announced in a statement today that it will be donating €500,000 (about $565,000 US) to the reconstruction and restoration of the Cathedral. Ubisoft’s donation will add to the more than $700 million that has already been pledged by sympathetic donors across the globe following French President Emmanuel Macron’s impassioned plea to the international community to unite in the efforts to restore the historically significant medieval cathedral. Although primarily known within the MMO industry as the developer of The Division and its sequel, Ubisoft is perhaps best known as the developer of the popular stealth-action Assassin’s Creed series, which is of particular relevance due to the inclusion of a faithful recreation of … [Read more...] about Ubisoft pledges half a million euros to Notre-Dame Cathedral reconstruction, gives away free games
