Assassin’s Creed Unity To Help Rebuild Notre Dame
The team at Ubisoft as made themselves available to help rebuild Paris Cathedral Notre Dame after being partially destroyed by a fire yesterday. According with PC Games N reports The Assassin’s Creed Unity might be very useful as the 3D mapping and building of the cathedral took over two years. The developers tried to make an accurate depiction of the historical building.
Unity’s version of Notre Dame is not entirely historically accurate, as the cathedral’s spires were added to its real-life counterpart after the events of the game. Much of the artwork hanging from the walls of the church is protected by copyright, meaning that it could not be directly reproduced in the virtual version of the church.
Nevertheless, the ability to explore a detailed version of both the inside and outside of the cathedral could prove extremely useful when it comes to rebuilding parts of it that were damaged or destroyed in the fire.
Reports suggest that art historian Andrew Tallon was able to use laser scanners to create a mapping of Notre Dame, it’s said that it’s within five millimeters of accuracy.
Assasins’s Creed Unity originally launched in 2014 following the same action/adventure formula, the game is set in the city of Paris during one of its darkest hours, the French Revolution.
