Ubisoft have announced that, in the wake of the tragic fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral on Monday, they will be offering Assassin’s Creed Unity for free via the PC Uplay store or directly on the Ubisoft Store. Players will be able to download the game for the next week via both those channels.
“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. 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.”
In related news, Ubisoft are also donating €500,000 to help with the restoration fund. If you needed proof that gaming isn’t all toxicity and can actually be quite wholesome, this is it.
