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, not being construction workers, the company will instead be donating €500,000 ($564,870 USD) to help with the rebuilding efforts.

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. As we all know, the Assassin's Creed games do an amazing job of replicating the environments and architecture of the times they take place in. In the case of Assassin's Creed Unity this includes Notre-Dame.

So, for one week, Ubisoft is offering everyone a chance to obtain a copy of the game for free via Uplay PC or the Ubisoft Store.

As the developers note in the post, video games can be a great way for those who may not be able to physically visit a location to still explore it -- especially when the developers take great care in replicating the space. This has always been one of the core features of AC games. So anyone who plays Unity will have the best possible (virtual) experience of the landmark.
