Ubisoft is making a game about the Notre-Dame Fire.
Ubisoft has developed a virtual reality escape room game in partnership with Pathe. It is based on the devastating fire that destroyed a large portion of Notre-Dame de Paris’s iconic cathedral in 2019.
Ubisoft donated EUR500,000 for reconstruction work and gave away Assassin’s Creed Unity to PC players so they could see the splendour of the Gothic cathedral, which dates back 856 years. The company stated that they wanted to offer everyone the opportunity to see the beauty and grandeur of Notre Dame in the best possible way. It’s not an exact representation of Notre Dame, as some adjustments were made to the flow of gameplay and copyright laws that prevented the reproduction of stained glass windows and art from the cathedral in Unity.
” Notre Dame On Firerecords the dramatic events that occurred on April 15, 2019, when it suffered the worst fire in its history. Pathe has released a trailer that describes the film. It shows how brave men and women risked their lives to save the cathedral from a terrifying fire. The game will allow players to step into the shoes and shoes of firefighters as they fight to save historical artefacts.
In an interview with Variety, Deborah Papiernik, Ubisoft senior vice president of new business and strategic alliances, explained a puzzle-based escape game. The idea is to navigate through Notre Dame to locate relics and fight the fire.
Notre Dame on Fire gives players one hour to work together to save the cathedral. It uses models from Unity to create the exact paths that firefighters would have taken. It will also be available in March in a location-based virtual experience at over 600 partner locations worldwide that Ubisoft offers.
