For those of you worried that your classification board may fiddle with the somewhat edgy and mature content in Ubisoft's South Park: The Fractured But Whole, you can rest easy – it'll be just as filthy and hilarious as you want it to be.

Via a report from GamesIndustry International, Ubisoft San Francisco associate producer Kimberly Weigend confirmed that the game will be uncensored and uncut in every region, including the likes of Australia.

That's a big shock, considering that Australia's Classification Board usually has a field day on mature-rated content. In fact, the 2014 release South Park: The Stick of Truth was actually halted at first because of its largely uncensored content.

As for why the game isn't being censored this time around, Weigend first noted, "We really didn't hold anything back with The Fractured But Whole. We worked very closely with Matt and Trey to tell their story – and they obviously don't hold back as well."

But then she added, "It could be a changing of the times, that they're more open to ideas. Maybe they saw the reception to the first game…we're honest not entirely sure why, but we're very happy that everyone's going to get the same experience because that was such a big bummer for the first game, that there were certain things we couldn't show in some countries."

These countries included the likes of Australia, as well as Germany and Austria, who found The Stick of Truth to be a bit too crass for its own good. But it looks like things are turning around for the better for Ubisoft, as the game recently acquired its ESRB rating and doesn't look to be delayed any further from its release, as it was originally supposed to come out in December of last year.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole arrives on October 17th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. If you need a laugh, make sure to check out this awesome ESRB rating explanation.
