Ubisoft Confirms VR Firefighting Game Based On 2019 Notre-Dame Fire

Ubisoft is making a firefighting game based on the 2019 Notre-Dame fire in partnership with Pathe.

Based on Jean-Jacques Annaud’s docudrama, Notre-Dame on Fire will take the form of a VR escape game where players follow the Parisian fire brigade as they attempt to prevent the cathedral from the blaze on April 15, 2019.

According to a report on Variety, Notre-Dame on Fire will be a one-hour experience and will see players through the events on the day the blaze, where Notre-Dame suffered heavy damage as a result of the fire. The cathedral has already appeared in a Ubisoft game back in 2014 with Assassin’s Creed Unity, which takes place during the French Revolution.

Ubisoft’s Senior VP of New Business and Strategic Alliances, Deborah Papiernik, revealed that Annaud reached out to Ubisoft while he was producing Notre-Dame on Fire.

He knew that we had a special attachment to Notre Dame. I guess that’s why he came to us. I don’t think he went to see [anyone else].

Like any escape game, it’s a question of puzzles and co-operating with your teammates. The idea is to make your way through the cathedral to find relics and to fight the fire, because you have to save Notre Dame [before the clock runs out].

Notre-Dame on Fire is slated for release in theatres in March 2022, and Ubisoft’s VR experience based on the event will arrive around the same time.
