The famous game development company Ubisoft of French origin announced yesterday that it will participate in the great wave of support that arose after the fire that devastated the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.
In the form of a tribute that will allow all players to get a free copy of Assassin's Creed Unity for PC for one week (they have until April 25) and allow players to walk around a Notre-Dame cathedral during the French Revolution.
The fire that devastated the nine-century monument last Monday sparked a wave of enthusiasm in France and abroad, prompting people to donate to rebuild it.

Ubisoft in support of culture
The gift of Assassin's Creed Unity by Ubisoft was not chosen randomly, but rather that, andThe game takes place in Paris in the time of 1789 and where the players of this great title are part of a secret society of assassins who roam the city in search of the victims of a rival group.
About Assassin's Creed Unity
For those who do not know about this title and wonder why? They should know that Assassin's Creed Unity includes a 3D digital version of Notre-Dame Cathedral, based on real plans as well as based on the historical documents and images of statues and ancient stones. The reproduction required 5,000 hours of work and required the reconstitution of 140 stained glass windows.
Players can scale the arches and gargoyles of the cathedral and admire a reconstruction of the panorama of the XNUMXth century in Paris.
However, there is a small detail that does not fit and is that the cathedral already has its spire, but it was added in the mid-nineteenth century.
Ubisoft stands in solidarity with the Parisian and everyone around the world is moved by this tragic event. Notre-Dame is an integral part of the identity of Paris and France, a city to which we are deeply connected. Seeing the cathedral on fire affected us all deeply.
By creating the Assassin's Creed Unity game, Ubisoft had the opportunity to establish even closer ties with Paris, as well as all of its historical monuments.
Ubisoft has focused much of its time and effort on rebuilding Notre-Dame, to get closer to the original
In light of Monday's events, Ubisoft wants to let the majesty and beauty of the cathedral be discovered in the best possible way.
Starting today and for a whole week, Ubisoft offers the PC version of Assassin's Creed Unity for all those who want it.

How to run Assassin's Creed Unity on Linux?
Now the final part for those of us who use Linux. To run Assassin's Creed Unity on our favorite distribution we can make use of some tools.
Of them I personally recommend Lutris (totally free) or for those who have a Crossover license or use Deepin OS make use of it.
Since these two tools automate the installation process and the configuration of the necessary Wine libraries (dll).
