Assassin’s Creed Unity Free Downloads Surpass 3 Million Following Notre-Dame Support
The world has faced a roller coaster of events the past few weeks that kicked off with the sudden fire that arose in the world famous Notre-Dame of Paris. The world united in a massive effort to collect funds to repair the church, including a significant donation from French game publisher Ubisoft. To help promote the reconstruction cause and cultural awareness, Ubisoft made their French revolution-set Assassin’s Creed Unity available for free. The game even received a positive review bombing from audiences in response. It is now being reported that the Assassin’s Creed Unity free downloads have surpassed 3 million.
The Hollywood Reporter has shared an update on the story which says that the game has seen 3 million people download it for free in the past few weeks. Assassin’s Creed Unity was made available for download for free on Uplay, Ubisoft’s proprietary digital video game distribution platform, until earlier this week.
The game was first released in 2014, much earlier in the current gaming generation of devices. With subsequent Assassin’s Creed games being released since then, sales for Unity have been dormant for some time now, so Ubisoft stood to gain more from the publicity than the free download costs would have offset.
Ubisoft has not provided much of an update on their recent donation to the Notre-Dame, nor on the Assassin’s Creed Unity free downloads. However, they likely hope to see renewed interest in both French cultural awareness and the Assassin’s Creed franchise take a big leap of faith from here.
