Ubisoft donates €500,000 for Notre Dame, gives AC game for free

French video game company Ubisoft said it is donating €500,000 to help rebuild the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris that was damaged in a fire earlier this week. The company said it will also offer free one-week access to its Paris-set Assassin's Creed Unity game for PC via Uplay. "We want to give everyone the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame the best way we know how," Ubisoft said.

"We stand in solidarity 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," the company based in Montreuil said.

Ubisoft joined numerous companies and private donors who raised €880 million so far for the reconstruction of the Notre Dame Cathedral. Assassin’s Creed Unity game is set in French Revolution-era Paris and contains a meticulous recreation of the Notre Dame Cathedral.
