In response to the Notre Dame Cathedral event, Ubisoft gave away Assassin’s Creed Unity for free for PC users. The company has also donated €500,000 towards the restoration of the monument. Now that so many people can play Assassin’s Creed Unity for free, the game needs more servers.
Ubisoft has confirmed that the servers are going to go down for maintenance in order to increase the server capacity for Assassin’s Creed Unity four years after the release of the game. You can get the game for free on PC now and keep it. Ubisoft had the following to say in this regard:
Video games can enable us to explore places in ways we never could have otherwise imagined. We hope, with this small gesture, we can provide everyone an opportunity to appreciate our virtual homage to this monumental piece of architecture.
While the actual monument might be rebuilt in the coming years, you can explore the 1:1 replica in Assassin’s Creed Unity. It is also a multiplayer game so you can play it with your friends as well.
This is to let you know that we'll be performing a scheduled maintenance on #AssassinsCreedUnity to increase server capacity on April 19 at 7AM UTC | 3AM EDT.

We talked about E3 2019 and what you can expect to see at the event. Ubisoft is going to be at the event as well and you can expect to hear more about the Viking-themed Assassin’s Creed game that was teased in The Division 2. You can also hear about an upcoming Splinter Cell game. Ubisoft has been teasing this for a while not but we have got no solid information regarding an upcoming Splinter Cell game.
If you are an Assassin’s Creed fan then you can read all about the 5 Assassin’s Creed settings we would like to see next. I for one would like to see modern-day Assassins. Something in the world of Watch Dogs would be very cool indeed.
Let us know what you think about Assassin’s Creed Unity and whether or not you have played it.
