The YouTube channel Arekkz Gaming gives fans a look at roughly 20 minutes of gameplay from Ubisoft’s forthcoming title South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
In order to promote South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Ubisoft has used a lot of its resources over the last few months to create several clips involving the title’s gameplay, such as the combat-driven footage shown in its gamescom 2016 trailer. Of course, as many fans will likely agree, while these bite-sized snippets of action and in-game materials have been appetizing, they have only caused an even greater craving for more gameplay from the studio’s forthcoming South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
Thankfully, the YouTube channel known as Arekkz Gaming recently was able to go hands-on with South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and came away with nearly 20 full minutes of gameplay from the title. The clip focuses on the beginning of the RPG, showing how players once more embody the role of the New Kid from The Stick of Truth to take on the attributes of a superhero character, rather than the previous game’s medieval and fantasy elements.
As seen below in the gameplay video for South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Arrekz not only was able to create his own character while trying out the release’s basic mechanics and battle system, but also he got the chance to experience the game while wearing Ubisoft’s satirical fart-smelling VR headset known as the Nosulus Rift, which is a blatant, yet hilarious parody of the Oculus Rift. Although it’s safe to say that the developer won’t be selling the headset along with the release of The Fractured But Whole this winter, Arrekz attests to the rancid nature of the scents coming out of the piece of technology.
Of course, the playthrough for the start of South Park: The Fractured But Whole shows how the game is created the same style of the episodes, while also including some all-new dialogue and story. Bearing this in mind, fans can see how the franchise’s creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker would easily be able to transition the television show into strictly PC and console releases, as the duo have previously stated in an interview that the future of the series might simply be video games.
Naturally, with the offensive humor and outlandish narrative of The Fractured But Whole projecting all of the quintessential comedic notes of South Park proper, it makes sense to know that the show’s creators are deeply involved with the development of the game. With this being the case, fans are almost assuredly experiencing eager anticipation for the game’s impending release.
