‘South Park: The Fractured But Whole’ is the sequel to ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’, the 2014 role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment. The game was first announced at Ubisoft’s pre-E3 press conference this year. On hand were South Park co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who offered some details on the upcoming title.
Matt Stone said “The game picks up where The Stick of Truth left off. It’s really about who you are. You define who you are in South Park.” In the game you play the role as the new kid in South Park, hoping to join Cartman’s super-hero group.
Sure the combat in South Park: The Stick of Truth was fun, but its turn-based combat wasn’t very strategic. In South Park: The Fractured But Whole.,you’ll be able to move your team members into position, using the environment to your advantage. With certain powers, you can even move your enemies into position. In addition, you can also manipulate time. Ubisoft said “The new kid’s farts are so powerful, they can shatter the fabric of time, letting you change the order of attacks or skip enemies’ turns altogether. From a tactical perspective, there’s going to be a lot more to consider this time around.”
‘South Park: The Fractured But Whole’, is set for release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in Q1 2017.
