By now, you’ll already know of the inferno that consumed the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Reducing its roof and spire into ash. While it’s possible to have the iconic landmark restored, we have no idea if and when that’s happening. But for now, Ubisoft is letting us explore the medieval structure virtually by giving away Assassin’s Creed Unity for free, for a limited time.
Between 10PM of 17 April and 3PM of 25 April – Ubisoft is kind enough to adjust this time to the local time of wherever you are – the game will be available for download. This is limited to the PC version of the game, though. That said, it’s permanently yours once you claim it within this time frame.
In solidarity with everyone moved by Monday's events we’re donating to the restoration of Notre-Dame & giving you the chance to play @AssassinsCreed Unity on Uplay for free.

For context, Assassin’s Creed Unity is the eighth entry in the franchise, and takes place in the city of Paris during the tumultuous period of the French Revolution. The game was riddled with a long list of glitches and bugs when it released back in 2014, but Ubisoft has since patched those issues.
At any rate, be sure to claim your free game from Ubisoft via its giveaway page here. Of course, being the PC version of the game, you’ll need download Ubisoft’s Uplay game launcher to play it.
