Disney Donates $5 Million to Help Rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral

Ubisoft pledges over $500000 to Notre-Dame restoration efforts

The Notre-Dame cathedral forms a central location in the game and had been painstakingly recreated by the team behind the game over the course of development.

In our review of Unity, we called the game "Good" saying "Assassin's Creed Unity is a gorgeous and entertaining game of impossible peaks and disappointing valleys". Per The Verge, this took artist Caroline Miousse two years to finish. "She even had historians help her figure out the exact paintings that were hanging on the walls", states the report.

"(Assassin's Creed Unity) 3D scanned #NotreDame in so much detail that this could help rebuilding the cathedral, " tweeted Ştefan Teişanu, director of the Cluj Cultural Centre, non-governmental organization that supports culture and urban development.

'We hope, with this small gesture, we can provide everyone an opportunity to appreciate our virtual homage to this monumental piece of architecture'.

The Notre-Dame Cathedral was featured as a fully explorable building in the 2014 Ubisoft video game Assassin's Creed Unity, which is set in Paris during the French Revolution.

Macron also appealed for financial help to do so.

The 93-metre spire collapsed on Monday in a fire that began at its base and spread through the cathedral's ribbed roof, made up of hundreds of oak beams, some dating back to the 13th century.

Although the fire broke out while Mass was underway, no one was killed because firefighters and church officials speedily evacuated those inside.

The real-world cathedral had been undergoing renovations before a fire erupted and caused severe damage to one of France's most prominent historical monuments.

Miller told reporters it is too early to consider terrorism as a motive for the actions of the suspect.
