Those eagerly awaiting the release of South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be delighted to know that the game has finally gone gold, meaning that development on the retail-ready product has officially wrapped and the finished software has been sent off to go into mass production. This news will come as a bit of relief for those that have experienced a number of delays for the South Park title, and to celebrate this occasion Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for the game.
Those that aren’t keen on the sense of humor notoriously present within the South Park television show may want to avoid the below trailer, as it’s a tried and true example of the absurdity present in the series created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker. With that said, those anticipating such a satirical and comedic reprieve will find the below trailer for The Fractured But Whole right up their alley.
Setting aside the fish-fueled humor in the above clip – complete with its rather bizarre take on the now-shuttered Flappy Bird – South Park: The Fractured But Whole is looking to be a true followup to The Stick of Truth. Indeed, Ubisoft has done a great job at retaining the comedic sharpness of the television show, and its implementation into the final product appears to be a worthy successor to the aforementioned premiere installment.
As has been rather par for the course with anything tied to the South Park I.P., the Ubisoft-developed game has been making some waves within the gaming industry through some of its approaches to gameplay design. Namely, The Fractured But Whole‘s satirical approach to difficulty. The like it or lump it attitude that the team behind the project holds, however, has helped to ensure that the vision Stone and Parker have for the finished game has remained intact.
Although, there’s likely to have been a little bit of compromise since South Park: The Fractured But Whole will remain uncensored worldwide – something that its predecessor failed to achieve.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole arrives for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 17, 2017
