At long last we know when we’ll be able to play through the adventures of the Coon and Friends. Ubisoft’s South Park: The Fractured But Whole (*snicker*) will finally land in our hot little hands on October 17, 2017. That’s nearly a year after it was originally supposed to be released, and the game has been subject to several delays since then. Let’s hope this date sticks!
Here is the new game trailer, which proves that farting will continue to be a necessary part of the gameplay:
The game is a sequel to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth, and apparently features more than double the content of the original. While the first game took the kids of South Park on a swords & sorcery LARPing adventure, this go round will have a superhero vibe as they team up to fight evil as their alter egos. The game is created, written, voiced and directed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, so it will basically be an immersive, interactive chapter of the hit show. The turn-based RPG style combat system has gotten an upgrade, and relies heavily on party-based strategy (character classes are unlocked along the way, giving you more options). Don’t worry though — you’ll still be playing as the New Kid.
The game will launch on XBOX ONE, PS4 and PC. I can’t wait to take another trip through the dark side of South Park, mostly to see if Cartman’s mom has any new sex toys stashed in her bedroom.
