Clickuorice Allsorts: the bugged humanoid animals of Assassin’s Creed Origins

Several Ancient Egyptian gods had the heads of animals but a bug in Assassin’s Creed Origins turns beasts humanoid in a wonderful and terrifying other way. While we’ve already reported players bumping into bugs and crashes in Origins, none were nearly as exciting as the creatures photographed and tweeted by Tom Phillips of our corporate sibling Eurogamer. A bug can make animals appear standing on their hind legs, twisted in the human ‘T pose’ (a sort of ‘blank slate’ animation) with their necks mangled. Reminiscent of Red Dead Redemption’s human/animal glitches like the donkey lady and flapping bird woman, they replace Unity’s missing faces as my favourite Ass Creed bug. Sure, bugs can be nuisances, but we can also enjoy their absurdity; I myself was delighted by a light show in XCOM 2’s final mission.

    I think the Ascension of the Jackdaw (with appropriate music) is still my favorite one.

    What, no comments? Well I appreciate the weird looking crocodile.

      I’m amazed no one said that Alligators are harder to animate, and it would include extra budget. So they just used their models…

    I just want to state for the record, knowing that it will change nothing, that this feature name is godawful and I cringe every time I see it.

    Red Dead Redemption may not have come to PC, but at least one of its best features did!

    You mean to tell me a game released by Ubisoft is a buggy mess? GET OUT OF TOWN!

    It’s a good thing only people who are dumb enough to pre-order have to suffer.
