The creators of South Park have done it again, this time in the form of their new RPG game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole. The new adventure picks up after the events of 2014’s game, South Park: The Stick of Truth. But this time instead of wizards and elves, you get superheroes. Awesome.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone are back as head writers for the newest installment of the game series, so you know you’ll get the same hilarity and irreverence you’ve come to know and love from the original television show.
The game starts after the kids have a falling out and split into two rival superhero groups. Cartman’s Coon and Friends against the Freedom Pals. As the story line progresses this rivalry escalates into an all out war.
You play “The New Kid”, Cartman is “The C**n”, Kyle plays “Human Kite”, Kenny is “Mysterion”, Stan is “Toolshed” and many more superhero townspeople appear. Unlike your character in the Stick of Truth, every aspect of your superhero avatar is customizable; from gender, facial hair, costume, and so on. The most controversial aspect of the customization process comes when you choose your difficulty level. In typical South Park fashion (making not so subtle political statements), your players’ race changes depending on which difficulty you choose. So the game is hardest if you choose a black character.
As always, you can expect classic South Park shenanigans and appearances by your favorite characters, so be prepped. Look for South Park: The Fractured But Whole coming out October 17, 2017.
