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

What a DELIGHTFUL bug!

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.
