Assassin's Creed Unity's Project Widow is a tour of Paris with Andy Serkis

Gollum, have a go.

Ubisoft has launched an online tour of Paris - narrated by actor Andy Serkis - to promote Assassin's Creed Unity.

Project Widow offers a 360 degree street level view of a few sections of Paris as it is today.

Areas you can explore include The Bastille, Notre Dame and Place de la Concorde. You can find Unity art and videos as well as read up about the French Revolution and how it's incorporated into the game.

The website includes narration from a "charismatic revolutionary" voiced by Andy "Gollum" Serkis.

Project Widow, by the way, refers to one of the nicknames for the guillotine during 18th Century Paris.
