Notre Dame and the challenge of rebuilding

French President, Emmanuel Macron, vowed to rebuild the cathedral after the inferno.

Addressing his nation, Macron said Notre Dame's burning was shocking for France and the world. "And we can do it".

The cathedral - described as the symbol of Christianity in France by the Vatican - hosts the Paris Archbishopric. Players take on the role of Amo Dorian, one of the many historical Assassins who have been fighting a centuries-long war against the Templars. "I don't have access to my office", he said.

The firefighters acted aggressively to protect wooden supports in the twin medieval bell towers from the flames, averting a bigger catastrophe, said Jose Vaz de Matos, a fire expert with France's Culture Ministry.

Paris Prosecutor Remy Heitz laid out a timeline in which an alarm went off at 6.20pm local time (12.20am on Tuesday Singapore time), but no evidence of fire was found.

The 850-year-old historic landmark was severely damaged by a devastating fire on Monday.

He also told reporters that work to secure the structure would continue into Thursday. The Notre-Dame cathedral forms a central location in the game and had been painstakingly recreated by the team behind the game over the course of development.

Dramatic new drone footage captured the massive extent of damage caused by the fire which destroyed much of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Later, Paris City Hall will hold a ceremony in the firefighters' honour, with a Bach violin concert, two giant banners strung from the monumental city headquarters and readings from Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

The cathedral was built over almost 200 years starting in the middle of the 12th century; the lead-covered spire was only added in the middle of 1800s by architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc during restoration work.

Philippe also said an worldwide competition will be held to see if the spire should be rebuilt.
