Now that everybody knows the disaster that struck the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris which caught fire on Monday, causing the roof and the spiral to collapse, here’s something the new Assassin’s Creed: Unity has come up with to impart a little happiness around.
The gothic monument belongs to the ancient period. The only thing that stands second to it is the Eiffel Tower, which is about 132 years old. So you can imagine how important Notre Dame was to the French culture.
But while this was rather a moment of pity, efforts to rebuild it are already underway, now that the fire has been extinguished. The building will be reconstructed as soon as possible to how it was before the fire; which means that the builders and the architects will have to study a number of photos and videos of the cathedral in order to restore it to its former glory.
Now amongst all the chaos Assassin's Creed: Unity comes into the rescue like a hero. The game is set in Paris, 1789 and features a near-perfect recreation of the Notre Dame cathedral. According to GPS World, the 3D maps from the game will play a role in restoring the cathedral. For the uninitiated, Ubisoft does not in any way lag behind when it comes to historical and architectural perfection.
Unity artist Caroline Miousse had said this before that Ubisoft's version of the cathedral was easily the biggest building in the game and she had spent literally years getting into the details of the building.
Miousse is known to have collaborated with texture artists to make sure of all the details of even the bricks and where it should be. We can hope that it’s going to be a fetch a lot of players and is going to stand out in a way.
