Following the saddening events out of Paris this week, Ubisoft is giving away Assassin’s Creed Unity on PC for free in support of the Notre-Dame de Paris.
Earlier this week the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral caught fire leaving devastating amounts of damage in its wake. Many have since come forward offering lumps of cash to help with renovations, and Ubisoft is joining in by donating €500,000 to help with the restoration.
In an effort to encourage more donations, the developer is also giving away copies of Assassin’s Creed Unity for PC for one week.
“We want to give everyone the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame the best way we know how,” the developer said in an announcement. “For one week, we will be giving Assassin’s Creed Unity away free on PC, for anyone who wants to enjoy it.”
“Video games can enable us to explore places in ways we never could have otherwise imagined,” writes Ubisoft. “We hope, with this small gesture, we can provide everyone an opportunity to appreciate our virtual homage to this monumental piece of architecture.”
Players can grab Assassin’s Creed Unity via this website, or via Uplay on PC.
