On Monday morning the world woke up to shocking images of Notre-Dame de Paris in flames.

The exact cause of the fire is not yet known and CBS News reports that as many as 50 investigators are involved in the case.

Following this week’s events Ubisoft has not only made Assassin’s Creed Unity available for free but will also be donating €500 000 to the restoration and reconstruction of Notre-Dame de Paris.

“As the smoke clears on the events that unfolded on Monday at the Notre-Dame de Paris, we stand in solidarité with our fellow Parisians and everyone around the world moved by the devastation the fire caused. Notre-Dame is an integral part of Paris, a city to which we are deeply connected. Seeing the monument in peril like this affected us all,” Ubisoft wrote on Assassin’s Creed Unity’s store page.

Given that Notre-Dame de Paris has no been changed following the fire, Ubisoft wants to give folks the chance to experience the Cathedral in all of its glory.

So, for one week you can head to the Ubisoft Store and claim a copy of Assassin’s Creed Unity on PC for free, forever.

If you’re looking for a game to play this weekend and you happen to be on the PC platform, why not take a walk atop Notre-Dame de Paris?
