The devastating fire at Notre Dame caused considerable damage to the famous structure that toppled the tower and triggered the interior of the cathedral. There is now an international competition aimed at finding the best way to repair and restore Notre Dame, but these architects and engineers could get unlikely help from a popular video game. Ubisoft Game Studio makes the massively popular "Assassin & # 39; s Creed" series, and they are known to use historical sites during the game, often based on real historical moves or events. The eighth part of the game, "Unity", is now a potential source for the restoration of the century-old cathedral.
Ubisoft acknowledges the game's debt to Notre Dame and offers "United" for free at its online store for a week after the fire. The studio also donates 500,000 euros for the restoration and writes in a statement: "As the smoke fades from the events that took place on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris, we stand with our Parisian fellow citizens and everyone else in the neighborhood in solidarity world moved by the destruction that caused the fire.
