Ubisoft has decided to give Assassin’s Creed Unity free for a week on PC. They are also donating €500,000 for the reconstruction of Notre Dame Cathedral which was destroyed in a fire recently.
After this goodwill gesture by Ubisoft, there seems to be an outpouring of support by the community and this is seen with the surge in positive reviews for Assassin’s Creed Unity on Steam.
This trend of positive reviews started recently and while there are some negative ones, Steam is mostly showing the overall ratio as “very positive” even though Assassin’s Creed Unity was notorious for its buggy performance and issues.
If you want to claim a free copy, it is currently available on PC. This will run from April 17 until April 25 and anyone who gets the game now will be able to keep it for free.
Assassin’s Creed Unity has an in-game model of Notre Dame cathedral which is why it caught the attention of media. In the game, players can explore around in the Notre Dame cathedral but it has been imagined as it was in the French Revolution or the late 1700s, so it might not line up with the modern times.
Regardless, it took a lot of time and man-hours to recreate this cathedral in the game and it will potentially help the French government in their reconstruction after the damage sustained by the fire.
