PostSouth Park - The Fractured but Whole. PS4, Xbox One and PC 2016
by JiggerJay » Mon Jun 15, 2015 11:09 pm



Ubisoft kicked off their E3 press conference with a new South Park RPG. It's the follow up to the Stick of Truth, but, rather than that game's fantasy parodying, this time it's superheroes.
It's called, of course, South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
Asked on stage why they're making a new RPG, Trey Parker said, "at the end of Stick of Truth we kind of learned how to make video games." They won't be making this one with Obsidian, though, as Ubisoft: San Francisco has been announced as the developer. Despite the switch, the game will retain Stick of Truth's role-playing and combat style.
Parker and Stone revealed that once again you'll be playing as the New Kid. This time, however, the game will delve into the kid's origin story—as befits any good superhero tale.
Here's the plot, courtesy of the trailer's description:
"Players will delve into the crime-ridden underbelly of South Park with Coon and Friends. This dedicated group of crime fighters was formed by Eric Cartman whose superhero alter-ego, The Coon, is half man, half raccoon. As the New Kid, players will join Mysterion, Toolshed, Human Kite, Mosquito, Mint Berry Crunch and a host of others to battle the forces of evil while Coon strives to make his team the most beloved superheroes in history."
No release date has been announced, but Fractured But Whole will be available for PC and current-gen consoles.

Discuss.

Yes! I didn't have much hope of a Stick Of Truth sequel so this is a most welcome suprise. Sounds like it might not be too far off either, hope it's out this year.

I was literally talking to my mates the other day about how much I'd love a sequel to Stick Of Truth.

And lo the gaming God doth deliver.

Excellent news!

Only concern is that they've already realised the town as a game world and made a huge number of references to the source material.

Stick of truth was fantastic, one the most pleasant gaming surprises in a long time so this should be a treat too.

I completely missed this announcement until I saw the thread on Neogaf. Stick of Truth was one of my favourite games last year so I'm definitely on board for this.

Hoping to play stick of truth BC on X1, and if it's good I'll get this.

The best way to go into Stick of Truth is thinking of it as an episode of South Park rather than a proper RPG. In that, it really excels.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will now launch on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, calendar Q1 2017. The development team wants to make sure the game experience meets the high expectations of fans and the additional time will help them achieve this goal.

Not much of a surprise given the delays that hit the first game. There's always a chance Matt and Trey are tinkering with it to tie it in to the end of the upcoming series.

Also, posted this in the gaming chat thread because I didn't know this thread was here...

They actually made them. :lol:

Actually don't mind this being delayed, there's so much out for the rest of the year I don't think I'd have got round to it.

Something for me to look forward to in the new year, no issue with the delay from me (not that the game developers are awaiting my approval or anything).
