Ubisoft is giving away Assassin’s Creed Unity free. Yes, that’s what everyone will be starting their articles about today, regardless of WHY it’s being offered for free.
One of the things, the most important thing, which won’t get reported as prominent is that Ubisoft are donating €500,000 to the Notre-Dame restoration fund. Five hundred thousand Euros. Half a million Euros. That’s around £433,190 GBP or $565,000 USD.
That is amazing! Now, the reason for Ubisoft’s decision to give away Assassin’s Creed Unity in particular is because the game features the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral and in immaculate detail. So much detail that resources used to include Notre-Dame in Assassin’s Creed Unity are to be used for the restoration, that’s just how well detailed the digital model is.
So, to the game giveaway and how you can get it. The best and probably easiest way would be through the Uplay client, but there’s also this post from Ubisoft which has a link and a more direct link here.
