Today, Ubisoft and South Park Digital Studios announced that South Park: The Fractured but Whole will be available on October 17. From the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and developed by Ubisoft San Francisco, The Fractured but Whole is an outrageous sequel to 2014’s award-winning title, South Park: The Stick of Truth and will release on Xbox One and PC.
With crime on the rise in South Park, the streets have never been more dangerous. As the sun sets on the quiet Colorado town, havoc and chaos unleash a reign of terror and the seedy underbelly of the city comes alive. The town needs new heroes to rise! Eric Cartman seizes the opportunity to save the town and create the best superhero franchise ever, his own Coon & Friends with himself as the leader, The Coon.
Every superhero has an origin, and Coon & Friends are no different. Continuing in their role as the New Kid, players will discover their backstory, assemble their unique costumes, and harness their fart-based powers from numerous hero classes to create their own original hero. An all-new combat system offers unique opportunities to master space and time while on the battlefield, and a revamped looting and crafting system gives players the freedom to craft their own equipment to aid them in battle.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole will be available in 4 editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold and Collector’s. Anyone who purchases South Park: The Fractured but Whole will receive South Park: The Stick of Truth for free. If you pre-purchase the game at select partners, you can start playing The Stick of Truth immediately.
All preorders will also receive an exclusive in-game assistant, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud. For those who don’t know, Towelie is an addict who happens to be a towel. The streets of South Park aren’t as safe as they used to be, and even the most seasoned South Park veteran will need help. Towelie: Your Gaming Bud provides helpful and hilarious advice and commentary to players at key locations throughout the game.
