South Park Fractured But Whole

Ubisoft continues to use its star power, bringing out South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker to talk more about the follow-up for the popular Stick of Truth game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

It started with a very standard looking ominous trailer about crime in the US, but led to an image of Cartman’s superhero persona, The Coon. Stone and Parker were asked about what was going on with the game, responding with, “don’t know yet,” and a laugh, but the two actually had some gameplay footage to show off, as well as a story teaser at the end, explaining why the kids from Colorado were at their Civil War stage in the superhero franchise already.

The game picks up where Stick of Truth left off, the next day in fact it seems, with the player still portraying the new kid, and switching over from fantasy to superhero comics. The footage shows off a tease of character creation—including mix and matching powers—tweaked combat, a grid movement system, and improved farts—most importantly though, PC Principal.

The humor of the game seems on point, and Stone and Parker were able to fit in the classic fish sticks reference, with one awkward Jesus joke from the host. The end note though was a high point, that those who pre-order the new game will receive a copy of Stick of Truth as well.

One who writes for different places, waking up late in the day to struggle with commas, broken controllers, and nightmares of Silent Hill and Yo! Noid.
