How all the media screams during last few days, the ignition caused a huge damage to the historically famous Notre-Dame Cathedral earlier this week, so Ubisoft have decided to help and lend financial aid to the restoration efforts for the iconic Parisian landmark.

The studio in Paris reported on April 17 that it will be donating €500,000 (about $565,000 US) to the reconstruction and rebuilding of the Cathedral. There is already more than $700 million that has been donated by compassionate donors across the world following French President Emmanuel Macron’s impassioned supplication to the international community to join the efforts to bring back the historically important medieval cathedral.

Previously known as the creator of The Division and its sequel, Ubisoft is better known as the studio developed the popular stealth-action Assassin’s Creed series, which is particularly related to the insertion of faithful modifications of Notre-Dame de Paris in 2014’s Assassin’s Creed Unity. The studio will give away free copies of the game “to give everyone the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of Notre-Dame.”

“Video games can enable us to explore places in ways we never could have otherwise imagined,” the studio’s statement reads. “We hope, with this small gesture, we can provide everyone an opportunity to appreciate our virtual homage to this monumental piece of architecture.”
