At their event at Gamescom, Ubisoft revealed some new gameplay footage of South Park: The Fractured But Whole. In the footage, we can see the first few minutes of the game, in which the New Kid infiltrates the Coon Lair (Cartman’s basement), and is inducted into Coon & Friends, receiving his backstory and hero persona. Since the footage is pre-alpha, the three classes we’ve already seen are still the only ones available, but the footage does reveal the names of the remaining classes.
Later on in the video, we get a glimpse of the basic aspects of the combat system as Coon & Friends take on the Freedom Pals. Personally, I love the fact that the characters banter in response to each others’ attacks. For example, when Wonder Tweek (Tweek) is attacked by The Human Kite’s (Kyle) lasers, he quips “why does a kite have laser eyes, anyway?” to which Kite responds “dude, read my backstory”. Also, Timmy is Professor X, which is just… amazing.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole will be releasing on December 6th, 2016. I’ve already got it pre-ordered, which I guess means I get a big dick in my mouth.
