Ubisoft pledges over $500000 to Notre-Dame restoration efforts

The game includes a recreation of the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

In a 2014 interview with Geek Ireland, level designer Caroline Miousse said that the in-game interior and exterior of Notre-Dame took 14 months of production "and it took three weeks to dress its interior in accordance to the Revolution era".
