South Park: The Fractured But Whole: 7 things we learned from E3 2016

Brodie Fogg 14 June 2016


"Mum, the new kid is trying to play with the ultimate cube of destruction." Ubisoft showcases South Park: The Fractured But Whole at E3 2016

The South Park: The Fractured But Whole demo kicked off with Matt Stone and Trey Parker on stage introducing a scene where we see Cartman bossing around the new kid, the player character, followed up by scene where Cartman explains the player character's origin story, and true to form, it's absolutely hilarious.

Next up, things took a slightly more serious turn as the team announced a slew of new features and dropped a few hints of what kind of gags to expect when the game releases:

  • You're no longer restricted to one place in battle.
  • You can move behind enemies for critical hits.
  • There are obstacles that certain characters can overcome using unique character abilities.
  • You can use push and pull enemies and inflict damage using the environment.
  • Your farts can be used to rip the fabric of time itself: rearranging the turn order in battle and providing other gaseous benefits.
  • There is a mission involving Kanye's gay fish.
  • There are various superhero classes to choose from, including speedster.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and 5 December 2016 - well over a year since it was first announced at E3 2015.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole was first announced a year ago today at E3 2015. At the time, not much else was revealed other than the fact it is being developed by Ubisoft San Francisco for PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows and replaced the fantasy theme of The Stick of Truth with the superhero personas from the Coon and Friends story arc.
