The latest patch for Assassin’s Creed Origins has legitimized an unintentional feature that allowed players to change Bayek’s hairstyle.
Prior to patch 1.05, players could change Bayek’s hairstyle by pressing LT/L2 plus Y/Triangle and his beard by pressing RT/R2 plus Y/Triangle. However, this customization option was only available when using a controller—leaving out some PC players—and it wouldn’t save the hairstyle you chose after quitting the game or dying. That’s because, according to one player’s conversation with Ubisoft Support, the feature wasn’t supposed to be the in the game at all. It was apparently a developer tool left in by mistake, rather than an intentional Easter egg.
Following the patch, PC and console players alike can easily change Bayek’s hairstyle, and it will save your preferred look the next time you boot up the game. For PC players using keyboard, just hit Shift+Z to change his hair and Ctrl+Z to change his beard.
The patch also introduces some smaller but significant fixes as well. An issue causing some saved games to corrupt during the “Ambush at Sea” mission has been fixed, and lower-level enemies have seen a bump in difficulty on Hard Mode. Overall performance and stability has been improved as well, following some criticisms online, most notably for PC players.
The patch is available now on PlayStation 4, with the Xbox One version going live on November 20th. It will be 1.3 GB for both platforms. The PC version, meanwhile, still doesn’t have a release date.
