Numerous reviews reference Ubisoft's generosity and its €500,000 donation to the Notre-Dame restoration fund. Ubisoft only offered the game free on its own game launcher Uplay and not Steam, but it seems that players were so moved by its actions, that Steam owners of the game want to show their thanks, too.

"The worst has been avoided", said Franck Riester, the culture minister.

Police have also closed off a large part of the island which the cathedral sits on, citing "important risks" of collapse and falling objects.

(Lionel Bonaventure/AFP/Getty Images) Firefighters and technicians work on a balcony of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral in Paris, April 19, 2019, four days after a fire devastated the cathedral.

Investigators so far believe the fire was accidental, and are questioning both cathedral staff and workers who were carrying out renovations.

Investigators aren't sure how the Notre-Dame fire started, but they suspect it resulted from an accident rather than arson or terrorism.

A "computer glitch" may have been behind the fast-spreading fire that ravaged Notre-Dame, the cathedral's rector said Friday, as architects and construction workers tried to figure out how to stabilize the damaged structure and protect it from the elements. Since then, people from all over have rallied around the effort to rebuild the Parisian landmark - including Ubisoft, which donated €500,000 to Paris organizers and is giving away Assassin's Creed Unity until Thursday, April 25 so that players can enjoy its in-game recreation of the cathedral.

LSU Athletics Director Joe Alleva to resign, according to reports

The probe was taking place as France paid a day-long tribute to the Paris firefighters who saved the famous cathedral from collapse and rescued its treasures.

"It's a miracle that the cathedral is still standing, and that all the relics were saved", he said.

The father and daughter captured in a viral photograph in front of Notre Dame an hour before a massive fire erupted have been found.

On Monday, Israeli president Reuven Rivlin offered condolences to Paris following the fire.

Among others honored was Myriam Chudzinski, one of the first firefighters to reach the roof as the blaze raged. They want their old cathedral back.

"We may find out what happened in two or three months", Chauvet said.

Chauvet said there were fire alarms throughout the building, which he described as "well protected". "It was from upstairs that you understood that it was really dramatic".
