We previously saw a world of magic in South Park: Stick of Truth, and the newest South Park game will take us to new heights with super heroes, including all kinds of classes and abilities. Ubisoft revealed a teaser trailer during their E3 2016 press conference, featuring Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

 

The game lets you define who you are in South Park as the “new kid” once again, and it takes place after South Park: Stick of Truth. It features improved combat, space for tactical positioning and taking cover. In addition to unique powers, you’re able to use the environment to your advantage in battles. You’ll also be able to use your “farts” to rip through the fabric time and rearrange the turn order.

 

More details from the press release:

 

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. Continuing in their role as the New Kid, players will become a member of Coon & Friends and fight for fame and their place beside the other kids.

 

Players must harness their fart-based powers to fight crime and become part of the most marketable superhero franchise of all time. Every superhero has an origin, and Coon & Friends are no different. Players will discover their backstory, assemble their unique costumes, and mix and match powers from numerous hero classes to create their own original hero.

 

Developed from the ground up using Snowdrop™, Ubisoft Massive’s proprietary engine, The Fractured But Whole has expanded with more places to explore and greater freedom to customize each players’ character. 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.

 

South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be available in four editions: Standard, Gold, Steelbook Gold and Collector’s.

 

The Standard Edition:

  • The complete South Park: The Fractured But Whole game

 

The Gold Edition (available digitally only) includes:

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 navigating the dark streets. Towelie: Your Gaming Bud provides unique assistance to players at key locations throughout the game.

 

UbiCollectible has teamed up with South Park Studios for the creation of three exclusive figurines:

 

  • The Coon (Eric Cartman) aims to become the Hero this town needs. He is The Coon! This figurine will be available in two sizes: 3” (7.5cm) and 6” (15cm) – also available in the Collector’s edition.
