I have no words
One day publishers will study Ubisoft when it comes to turning their franchises around. Many of their recent games like Rainbow Six Siege, The Division, For Honor, and Ghost Recon Wildlands have undergone extreme changes since their respective launches, and the Assassin’s Creed series deserves to be in the conversation as well.
Amid concerns that Ubisoft was annualizing the franchise the publisher decided to pull the reins back a little, which has been going tremendously well for them with Origins and Odyssey. Spots of free DLC here and there don’t hurt, and Odyssey in particular has droves of it. One such addition is the perpetual sprinkling of mercenaries: more big bads to roam around, fight, and conquer.
The latest one needs no introduction because his name says it all: Testiklos the Nut, the “half-brother of Testikles,” who grants you the Nutcracker weapon upon his death. Yep, well played. Ubisoft is really embracing the strange when it comes to the recent Assassin’s Creed universe, and pretty much everyone is enjoying it.
Having been separated quite early in his life from his half-brother Testikles, his mood has been unstable ever since. He never felt as secure than with his own kin, so he deals with the separation by breaking things.
