South Park: The Fractured But Whole is out today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, UPlay). It’s a sequel to 2014’s video game adaptation, South Park: The Stick of Truth. Both games were published by Ubisoft in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios, but The Stick of Truth was developed by Obsidian Entertainment. South Park: The Fractured But Whole was developed by Ubisoft San Francisco.
Like the Stick of Truth, South Park: The Fractured But Whole is an RPG set in the very adult world of the long-running comedy series. This time the kids are playing superheroes, and you’ll be able to create your own superhero and join Eric Cartman’s Coon and Friends squad.
The Fractured But Whole features a new combat system, and revamped looting and crafting to hone your powers. You can also find hidden loot and recipes around the cartoon land to make equipment.
Currently if you purchase South Park: The Fractured But Whole you’ll receive The Stick of Truth for free. That promotion ends January 31, 2018.
It’s not an Ubisoft game without a Season Pass. The Season Pass is included in the Gold Edition of the game (and sold separately) and will include the following content:
- Danger Deck – Face combat challenges in Doctor Timothy’s Danger Deck. Unlock costumes and artifacts. Available December 2017
- From Dusk till Casa Bonita – Story DLC. Team up with The Coon and Mysterion to fight demons at Casa Bonita. Available 2018.
- Bring the Crunch – Story DLC, adds new superhero class. Available 2018.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been emphatically rated M for Mature. Though it’s a cartoon starring kids it includes very mature humor and racial and sexual themes and content.
