Overcoming its most recent (terrible, horrible, depressing) delay, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, from Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Ubisoft San Francisco, now has another official release date. The game will sell on October 17, 2017, on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms.
Ubisoft offered the plot points for this upcoming adventure in the press release with the news of the launch date.
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 ri
se! 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.
That same release included a brand new trailer.
The first South Park game, The Stick of Truth, was an outstanding example of a video game meeting the stellar standards of its source material. It was a blast.
If this sequel approaches that standard of quality, we’re in for one heck of a ride. Stay tuned.
