Summary

So if you’ve been missing an inside look at the cathedral’s interior, here’s your chance for a look.The video description calls it a “360° video teaser of Ubisoft’s VR experience, based on Notre-Dame de Paris 3D reconstitution from the videogame Assassin’s Creed: Unity.” Ubisoft debuted the VR experience last year to visitors at the UNESCO headquarters, but has so far not made it public, but that description makes me think it might be soon. Otherwise, why call it a “teaser”?Read: Ubisoft offers Assassin’s Creed Unity for free so you can visit Notre-DameIf you want to explore more of Ubisoft‘s reconstruction of Notre Dame at the moment, I recommend buying Assassin’s Creed Unity. Generally the Assassin’s Creed series puts in so much painstaking historical detail that recent games have included an educational mode called “Discovery Tour” that lets you explore the historical setting, no assassinations required.With Unity in particular, whatever else you can say about the game, Ubisoft made sure to put in the work to recreate one of Paris’s most iconic sites for that game’s hero, Arno Dorian, to free-climb all over.
