After multiple delays and relative radio silence from Ubisoft, it's finally been revealed that South Park: The Fractured but Whole will launch on October 17 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. This was revealed with a brand new trailer: "The Farting Vigilante." Check it out right here (you may want to make sure you're volume isn't turned up too loud if you're at work):
"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."
Ubisoft is offering you a few neat incentives for pre-ordering The Fractured but Whole. Anyone who pre-orders the game will instantly unlock a free digital copy of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Additionally, all pre-orders will receive an exclusive in-game assistant, Towelie. "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."
It's been a long wait, but we have no doubt it will be worth it. The Stick of Truth launched to rave reviews and incredible fan feedback, and is actually one of the best RPGs you'll ever play. In true South Park fashion, Ubisoft, Trey Parker, and Matt Stone have managed to create a fantastic example of the very genre they're parodying. Check it out, and look forward to The Fractured but Whole this fall!
