Assassin's Creed Odyssey introduces Testiklos the Nut, a new mercenary

Oh, Ubisoft. If you're going to go there, you might as well go the whole hog.

The latest mercenary to appear in Assassin's Creed Odyssey is Testiklos the Nut. As well as his unfortunate name, he's laden with a tragic past. OK, it's not a tear jerker, but I guess it's a bit sad. He misses his brother, you see. Testikles (who you might've met previously in the game). They were separated when they were young, and Testiklos hasn't been the same since.

Someone's already hunted him down and killed the poor guy and his pet boar. Yes, he's an animal lover. See, there's more to him than just a silly name. He's got lots of things going for him.  

You can fight and recruit Testiklos the Nut now. 

Update: we added a quick edit here to reference the fact Testikles had previously appeared in Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Fraser is the UK online editor and has actually met The Internet in person. With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
