“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,“ announced Ubisoft. The Notre-Dame we’ve seen in the game was made by Caroline Miousse of Ubisoft Montreal. Back in 2014, Miousse said that the cathedral’s spire in-game was different from the one that was toppled by Monday’s fire.
