WE HAVE A RELEASE DATE, EVERYONE!!!!
Ubisoft announced today that South Park: Fractured But Whole will be released this year! The release date is October 17th, 2017. It will be available on that date in North America and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Asia).
Here is a synopsis for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Fractured But Whole – 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 also announced that South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available in four editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold and Collector’s. Anyone who purchases South Park: The Fractured But Whole will receive South Park: The Stick of Truth for free! If you pre-purchase the game at select partners, you can start playing The Stick of Truth immediately. Keep in mind that this offer will expire on January 31, 2018. The Stick of Truth is an incredible game, so I am extremely excited that they are including it with Fractured But Whole. Maybe this is an apology for the delay’s?
All pre-orders will also receive an exclusive in-game assistant, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud. The streets of South Park aren’t as safe as they used to be, and even the most seasoned South Park veteran will need help. Towelie: Your Gaming Bud provides helpful and hilarious advice and commentary to players at key locations throughout the game.
I wish this game was out right now! But at least we won’t have to wait too much longer. I was honestly worried we wouldn’t see it until 2018.
