South Park: The Fractured But Whole

With Gamescom in full swing, we’re beginning to become inundated with fresh looks at some upcoming games. First up today, South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… The Coon!

You can immediately tell that RPG intends to continue on with the same wit and gameplay that made The Stick of Truth such a shocking success. The trailer is interspersed with plenty of comedy. Such as the kids having to break character and exit the street from a moving car. You’ll also get a closer look at some superhero action as your New Kid shows off his Speedster class. If you aren’t up to speed on what the game entails, here’s its description:

“In the quiet mountain town of South Park, darkness has spread across the land. A new power is rising to combat this evil. An entire squad of superheroes will rise, led by a nocturnal scavenger sworn to clean the trash can of South Park society. The kids are playing superheroes, and Cartman is determined to turn Coon and Friends into the biggest superhero franchise of all time. However, the villainous Professor Chaos emerges with an evil plan to eliminate Coon and Friends. The heroes need to work as a team to fight the chaos and terror that grips the town.”

South Park: The Fractured But Whole is really beginning to excite fans of The Stick of Truth. The Marvel/DC rip-off that the series is now running with is a fantastic fit, and December can’t seem to come soon enough. Checkout the new gameplay trailer just below.

Growing up a 90's kid, Jeff found his love for gaming during Nintendo's heyday. Because of that, you could call him a "Nintendo Fanboy" (albeit a rational one) to this day. Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
