Did you have fun going on the wild adventures of the South Park crew last year? We know we did. Thanks to fans who made 2015’s release “The Stick of Truth” an award-winning tittle, Ubisoft announced at E3 that the smash hit will be getting a follow up and that it is currently in development for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. This means that players will get to return to the crazy antics of The New Kid of South Park, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman as they take on a rather hilarious and mind blowing as well as outrageous adventure.
In development over at Ubisoft San Francisco, South Park: The Fractured but Whole will once more set players into the antics of the town of South Park and the kids that inhabit it. This means they will go into an adventure of solving a crime-ridden adventure that will make them team up with Coon, their friends, and many more as they become a dedicated group of crime fighters that have been formed by Eric Cartman (The Coon, his half man, half raccoon crime solver personality), The New Kid, Mysterion, Toolshed, Human Kite, Mosquito, Mint Berry Crunch and more as players take on the forces of evil while Coon finds himself trying to make his team the best of the best when it comes to being a beloved group of superheroes. To help make sure the story fits the authenticity of South Park, series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are involved with every step of the games development in order to ensure that it keeps true to the series.
“The success of South Park: The Stick of Truth proves our fans crave a deeper interactive experience with South Park,” said Dan Yang, EVP and GM, Consumer Products, Viacom Music & Entertainment Group. “Working with Ubisoft to extend the South Park gaming franchise will no doubt galvanize the audience’s interest across all platforms.”
“By successfully mixing outstanding comedy with excellent gameplay, South Park: The Stick of Truth created a game genre: the Comedy Role-Playing Game,” said Laurent Detoc, president at Ubisoft. “Our teams worked hard, laughed hard, and players loved it so we’re back to collaborate on the fantastic world created by Matt, Trey and the talented group at South Park Digital Studios with South Park: The Fractured but Whole.”
South Park: The Fractured but Whole will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. Stay tuned as we await more information regarding this title.
