What does Ubisoft have to do with the Notre-Dame fire?
The headquarters of this important study is located in Paris, so they experienced the incident closely and almost immediately got down to work to support whatever was needed.

They also made available to gamers a free version of Assassin’s Creed Unity, where it is possible to visit the historic building, this as a way to raise awareness of its importance.
