Ubisoft has been quite busy these last 24 hours. Courtesy of an investor’s meeting, the studio has divulged quite a bit of news regarding some of their more prominent IPs. And South Park: The Fractured But Whole is no exception. It seems the mind trust behind the game have finally settled upon a (new) release date for the much anticipated title. And it’s just a few months away.
3rd Times the Charm?
The publisher is now aiming for October 17th to release South Park: The Fractured But Whole. This is now the third slot the game has slid into. But with a release date exactly 5 months away, you would assume this one is solid. For those out of the mix, here’s the game’s official plot:
“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 has also announced that who purchases South Park: The Fractured But Whole will also received South Park: The Stick of Truth free of charge. This deal runs through January 18th. The original was fantastic, so hopefully the second follows suite. I’m sure we’ll be seeing one final close look at the game at E3 next month. Here is today’s trailer:
