South Park: The Fractured but Whole will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in North America and Europe on October 17, Ubisoft announced.
The game will be available in standard, Gold, SteelBook Gold, and Collector’s editions. Every purchase of the game includes South Park: The Stick of Truth as a free bonus. Pre-purchasing the game at select stores will let you start playing The Stick of Truth immediately. Pre-orders will also include the exclusive in-game assistant “Towelie: Your Gaming Bud,” who will provide “helpful and hilarious advice and commentary” to players at key locations throughout the game.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Ubisoft:
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.
