Ubisoft offers PC gamers Free Copies of Assassin's Creed Unity in aftermath of Notre Dame blaze

In case you were unaware, much of Paris' famed Notre Dame Cathedral was destroyed in a fire on Monday, April 15th, destroying much of the iconic structure.  

To help restore and reconstruct the Cathedral, Ubisoft has donated €500,000 to help pay for the materials and talent required to bring Notre Dame to its former glory. On top of that, Ubisoft has also given PC gamers the opportunity to "experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame" by making Assassin's Creed: Unity available for free on Uplay for a limited time. 

Assassin's Creed Unity contains the most accurate interpretation of Notre Dame that has ever been attempted within a video game, giving gamers a unique way to explore and view the Parisian marvel. 

This free offer will be available until April 25th at 8 am BST. Ubisoft hopes that this free offer will encourage more gamers to donate to the cathedral's reconstruction efforts, adding to their €500,000 donation. 

  

    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. You can download it now for Uplay PC here: http://assassinscreed.com/unity-notredame/ or get it directly on the Ubisoft Store here: https://store.ubi.com/

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.

Didn't believe you at first. So went over the FB page.

Well, you were right! It's not crazy toxic but the amount of heartlessness is insane. I am one of the least religious people in the world, least caring at most things, and this fire of Notre Dame is sad even to me. 800 years of history wiped out within hours. That's a sad thing. No I am not crying over it or anything, but you can still have some sort of empathy.Quote

This is in general why I stay away from Facebook, It brings some truly vile people out of the woodwork.Quote

Seems a lot of the worst comments where auto-moderated out. Seems a lot of the comments are from super anti-religion people. It's a national monument and a huge part of French history, that building is more than a cathedral.

All I am thinking right now is what would the response have been if it was St Paul's Cathedral in London.Quote
