Ubisoft is performing a classy gesture with the announcement today that they will be contributing €500,000 toward the rebuild efforts of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral in Paris.  For those of you that are unaware, the cathedral had a massive fire earlier this week that destroyed the iconic roof and spire and left much of the interior in disarray.

The Cathedral holds a special place to the company, as it is one of the centerpiece landmarks in their Assassin's Creed Unity title, and was recreated with significant detail in-game.  As a result of their love for the game and the cathedral, Ubisoft will also be giving away the game on PC for free for a week from 4/17-4/24.  You can pick up the game via Uplay or via the Ubisoft Store through the 24th.
