South Park: The Fractured but Whole will be available on December 6, 2016.
Today, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of South Park, took to the stage at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference to announce the release date and new features for the upcoming game.
The follow-up to 2014’s Stick of Truth, The Fractured but Whole has the player assuming the role, once again, as the new kid in South Park. However, instead of the crew role-playing as fantasy characters, the game will focus on super heroes.
Details and features were unveiled during a short gameplay demo. The Brutalist, Blaster, and Speedster are all new classes with unique abilities and skill sets. Also, a number of changes to combat will be impleted into the new game. Space, which now allows players to move around a grid-like battlefield rather than standing in place. Players will be able to use this more open area to take cover, knock back enemies, or jump over obstacles. Time is a new mechanic that involves your farting abilities, which can alter turn orders.
By buying The Fractured but Whole, players will get a free copy of The Stick of Truth on current-generation platforms when the game releases. Anyone who pre-purchases the game will receive a copy of The Stick of Truth immediately.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole will release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
