South Park: The Fractured But Whole Trailers Detail Different Factions

South Park The Fractured But Whole is the funniest game you’re going to play this year

That trend continues with its forthcoming videogame The Fractured But Whole, which will be increasingly hard the darker a character's skin is.

A Let's Play video by Eurogamer published this week highlighted the game's take on sex and gender by exploring its powerful character creator, which enables players to alter their experience based on their choices - more so than ever before. Ubisoft also told Eurogamer that difficulty is the measure of how much money your character earns in game and how character in-game will treat you. The upcoming RPG will also include a transgender protagonist, making it one of few game that include playable LGBTQ characters.

But it's the delivery of the jokes and the way that every dialogue line manages to feel so fresh and so well-delivered that really makes The Fractured But Whole stand out from the glut of other "comedy" games that have come and gone over the years.

If you play on an easier difficulty your character will be white.


South Park: The Fractured But Whole is a sequel to South Park: The Stick Of Truth, which was partially censored for console versions of the game when released here in New Zealand in 2014. "Uh, you're a girl?" For example, playing on hard difficulty (as a dark-complexioned character) will cause you to receive less loot.

Gender selection occurs during an interaction with Mr. Mackey, the school counselor. "Can you just hang on a minute?" After picking a female character, Mr Mackey will ring their parents and then players have the option to choose whether they are a cisgender or transgender girl. "It'll just take a second", Mackey says.

You can summon more characters to the field (and any excuse to spend time with the collective South Park cast is welcomed by us), and each of the various classes and attack types make for a combat system that keeps you on your toes, even if you're fighting a group of the same enemies for the tenth time. With an October 17, 2017 release date, the title will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
