As the saying goes ‘good things come to those who wait’, and boy have we had to wait, but we finally have a definitive release date for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. The new game, a follow up to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth, was originally supposed to launch late last year but will now finally arrive on 17th October. To celebrate his news Ubisoft has released a new trailer for the game which you can check out below with the official description for the game –
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 launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 17th October.
As a huge South Park fan I can’t wait to finally get my hands on this highly anticipated sequel. A couple years ago I made a top 10 list of my favorite episodes that you can check out here.
