Ubisoft has announced that, following Monday’s devastating fire which caused extensive damage to Notre-Dame cathedral, it will be donating €500,000 to Paris’ reconstruction efforts. And, as an additional gesture, Assassin’s Creed Unity is currently free on PC.
“As the smoke clears on the events that unfolded on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris,” Ubisoft wrote on its blog, “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.”
To that end, the publisher has pledged to donate €500,000 to help with the restoration and reconstruction of Paris’ historic landmark, and has encouraged interested fans to do the same.
