Assassin’s Creed United could help in the restoration of Notre Dame

Notre Dame Cathedral in the Assassin's Creed Unity

The historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris caught fire on Monday evening which led to the collapse of the spire and several areas of the epic building damaged including its roof. After the fire was extinguished President of France Emmanuel Macron announced that the building will be reconstructed.

As reported by the CBS News 3D digital scans of Notre Dame created by Vassar College professor could help in the restoration. It is also noted that Assassin’s Creed Unity which takes us to the French Revolution has been noted for its accurate rendering of the 1700s Paris.

Caroline Miousse, a level artist at Ubisoft created the Notre Dame structure for the game at the time of development of the game, as she told 80% of her two years of work focused only on modelling the Cathedral. She modelled the spire herself and added to the game later after they were missed by the game testers.

Miousse’s remodel of the Notre Dame Cathedral is possibly the same as the structure of the Cathedral at the time it was earlier before the damage.

Ubisoft has confirmed that the company is still not involved in the reconstruction process of the Cathedral but is open to provide the helping hand in rebuilding the epic building. However, Ubisoft has confirmed to donate more than $500,000 to reconstruction efforts and made Assassin’s Creed Unity free for a limited time in honour of the cathedral.
