Maybe you thought that NBA 2K15‘s face scan fails were are horrifing as glitches could get. Maybe you were damn well right, because it still makes the hairs on my gonads stand on end just to think about them. Still, there's always room for more Frankenstein-esque nightmares.

Luckily, Assassin's Creed: Unity is getting in on the action with the above little slice of horror (brought to us by Destructoid). The enigmatic Assassins have always been a low-key, check-out-my-edgy-cape-and-hood-combo bunch of guys, and now we know why: they have no effing faces under there. Those eyeballs floating in a dark void of creepiness and dispair is enough to put anybody off their historical free-roaming adventure.

As is the game's ropey framerate. Which, oddly, seems to be more of a PS4-based issue. In terms of pure technical grunt, it trumps the Xbox One, but Unity gives no effs about that. If it wants to stutter and lag on PS4, you can damn well bet your ass that it's going to stutter and lag on PS4.

Polygon, busting out the hardcore technical jargon, reports that the frame rate is 'crazy low' at times. There's also a ‘mass of bugs,'‘killer [pop-in],' and the lighting is ‘glitchy as hell.' In short, our Assassin buddies are not having a good time.

But hey, that's what patches are for.
