Yesterday, a large portion of the famous Notre-Dame de Paris was destroyed by an unprecedented fire on the roof of the cathedral. It took firefighters nearly two days to extinguish all the flames — including residual ones — and French President Emmanuel Macron announced the launch of a national fundraising campaign to restore Notre-Dame. This restoration will cost hundreds of millions, possibly more, but numerous individuals have vowed to pay for the work that needs to be done.
Assassin’s Creed Unity artist Caroline Miousse spoke to The Verge about the creation of the cathedral in the game at launch. She said the following.
In the case of the Notre-Dame, easily the biggest structure in the game, it meant recreating a version of the cathedral that didn’t actually exist at the time. Level artist Miousse spent literally years fussing over the details of the building. She pored over photos to get the architecture just right, and worked with texture artists to make sure that each brick was as it should be.
