Following a lengthy delay, the next South Park game will now be out on October 17, 2017. The Fractured But Whole is a sequel to 2014's Stick of Truth, although this game is developed by publisher Ubisoft’s internal San Francisco studio rather than Obsidian Entertainment. It looks very, very dumb and also very, very fantastic. New trailer above.
I’ve been waiting for this game for so long. Stick of Truth was a light, engaging gem with simple but enjoyable combat, fun exploration and if you’re a South Park fan at all, great laughs (my only criticism being it was too easy, even ratcheting up the difficulty).
I even replayed Stick of Truth last autumn in anticipation.
