Ubisoft is releasing a virtual reality game based on the firefighters that responded to the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral

Notre-Dame On Fire is a planned French blockbuster that will be released in theaters in March and will be accompanied with a virtual reality escape room game created by Ubisoft. It will be playable at all Ubisoft partner locations, including a number of places in Spain.

Ubisoft is releasing a virtual reality game based on the firefighters that responded to the fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral

The cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris was destroyed by fire on April 15, 2019. Fortunately, the firefighters were able to put out the fire that night, saving the structure: while the damage was extensive, the worst was avoided.


Three years later, Ubisoft will release a virtual reality video game in which we will play as firefighters in Paris.


It's a game created in partnership with Pathé, a film production business that will produce a film about the events of that night, told in a dramatic tone and with a lot of visual effects. Notre-Dame On Fire is the title of both the film and the video game.


The first facts on this Ubisoft game have been revealed by Variety. It's not a typical video game; instead, it's an hour-long immersive experience that can only be played in specialist facilities like an Escape Room VR.


"It comprises of riddles and teamwork, much like any other escape game. The goal is to make your way through the cathedral in search of relics while also fighting the fire, as time is running out to rescue Notre-Dame ", explains Deborah Papiernik, Ubisoft's senior vice president of strategic alliances.


To the surprise of many of their fans, the studio behind Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, and Far Cry has a lesser-known business model: virtual reality escape rooms, in which they have continued to exploit the Prince of Persia franchise (who despair at that suspicious remake ).


When the film is released in March 2022, Ubisoft plans to make this immersive experience available all around the world. They reveal that there are 630 VR outlets throughout the world that have access to their games, including some in Spain.


Jean-Jacques Annaud is the director of the film Notre-Dame On Fire. The film will be released in France in March by Pathé, the production company and distributor, but it has yet to find a distributor in Spain.


Ubisoft gave €500,000 to help repair it in 2019. The VR game will most likely utilise the digital Notre-Dame assets that Ubisoft generated for Assassin's Creed Unity in 2014.
