The Notre-Dame de Paris catching fire was a terrible, terrible event. The iconic part of the Parisian skyline had stood for hundreds of years, and within just a few short hours its spires were charred ash.
While it’s currently undergoing a rebuilding phase to restore it to its original designs, us gamers have been able to go where most tourists can’t with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Ubisoft’s first proper next-gen Assassin’s Creed game for PS4 and Xbox One.

Now, providing you’ve got the right gear (this may or may not work well in PSVR) you can get up close and personal to Notre-Dame de Paris in a brand new virtual tour that Ubisoft has posted to YouTube today. There’s a catch, though – it’s proper old Notre-Dame de Paris. Like, people walking around with no shoes on, old.
The idea is that it captures the building during its early life, and you get to experience a little bit of old-timey France. Bear in mind, if you don’t have a VR headset, you can still manipulate the video with your mouse – it’s just not quite as good as seeing it through a headset.
