On April 15, 2019, the world witnessed as Notre-Dame de Paris was nearly destroyed in a devastating fire.
As the tragedy unfolded, people began sharing memories of the cathedral with photos and videos. Others were able to relive their memories virtually through Assassin’s Creed Unity, the video game.
Ubisoft has been collaborating with historians for years, meticulously collecting data and testimonials to build Notre-Dame in-game. Based on this 3D model, Ubisoft created a VR tour of Notre-Dame so people can get back to the cathedral and discover point-of-views that were inaccessible to the public, or elements of architecture that were destroyed by the fire, including the famous spire!
