The Best Physics Glitches From Assassin's Creed Unity: Enjoy Arno Defying Gravity And Spending All Day In A Hay Cart

You've probably heard by now: Assassin's Creed Unity is rough. It's a prime example of a game that probably could have benefited from a couple more months in the oven. It may be frustrating for the fans trying to play through the game without a major hiccup, but at least the rest of us get to watch all the carnage from afar.

Enjoy These Glitches While You Can; Ubisoft's Working On A Fix

The glitches of Assassin's Creed Unity can really be divided up into a few distinct categories. Here are some of the most popular ones that players have run into.

Many players don't understand that this is less of a glitch and more of a high-level Assassin ability. Assassins are so stealthy that sometimes even gravity can't detect them. And it's certainly handy for getting around sentries and infiltrating heavily guarded areas. Plenty of players have taken to the Internet to show off Arno's occasional reluctance to stay on solid ground.

The console companies were right all along. Next-gen engines really are capable of some truly stunning hair and cloth effects.

The only egregious glitch in this video is that fact that some enemies don't even make it all the way into the cart, instead floating in front of it like a macabre warning to the rest of the regiment to flee from this innocuous yet lethal cart of hay. It's also hilarious, though, to see Unity's pathfinding in action as guard after guard runs around aimlessly right into the path of Arno's kill-zone. How many bodies can that cart hold, anyway?

It's understandable that you're confused, but this is yet another high-level stealth ability. Trained killers have discovered how to make their skin invisible. They're just waiting for R&D to get back to them about the rest of the face.

And then there's this video. If you're wondering where the rest of the glitch categories live, look no further. The montage includes everything from falling through the streets of Paris to NPCs hilariously clipping through the environment to whatever this is:

Ubisoft promises that they're working on updates that will, we can only hope, remove some of the more game-breaking glitches. Until that time comes, though, you can have fun exploring the sights and sounds of a heavily buggy Paris.

Assassin's Creed Unity is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
