The first South Park game, The Stick of Truth, was a surprise hit. Obsidian, with series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, brought the unique South Park feel to the game; and while the gameplay wasn’t that creative it was built around a solid funny core. So it’s only natural that the duo’s next game titled South Park: The Fractured But Whole would follow suit.
During Ubisoft’s press conference yesterday Matt and Trey took to the stage to talk about the game.
While the exact plot of the game is unknown it will be similar to Marvel’s latest movie Captain America: Civil War, that’s where the “Fractured But Whole” part comes into play. In fact Trey joked that Marvel originally wanted to call the movie “Fractured But Whole” but they beat them to it so Marvel went with “Civil War” instead.
As for what players can expect from the game, things have changed a lot, particularly combat. Whereas before combat was a more turn-based, Paper Mario-esque type experience TFBH will instead be grid based allowing for less restrictive movement.
Just like the first game players will get to choose what class they want to play as either the Brutalist, Blaster, or Speedster. Each of these classes have their own set of powers and abilities.
As the image above hints at, there are more playable classes to choose from as well as combine with their current powers to make a unique hero.
After the gameplay demo, Jason Schoeder of Ubisoft San Francisco said that the game would be out on December 6th and anyone who pre-purchases the game would get a free copy of The Stick Of Truth for Xbox One, PS4 or PC.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be out on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
