Fans of the ever-popular South Park-inspired TBS RPG game are patiently waiting for the game’s sequel. However, Ubisoft announced during a press conference that the Stick of Truth’s sequel would not be launched this year. The new game is called South Park the Fractured but Whole and, according to the developers, it should pick up the story where it was left by the Stick of Truth.
Remember the awesome and refreshing RPG game inspired by Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s popular adult cartoon? Launched in 2014, the Stick of Truth was considered a hit after only a few weeks. And what’s not to like about the Stick of Truth? It has everything a South Park fan could ever want – twisted and often racist humor, a cleverly-designed RRP-based gameplay, great graphics, and fantastic voice acting.
Even gamers who were not wooed by the turn-based role-playing games genes were simply swept away by the Stick of Truth. And one can say all kinds of things about again which lets your fight zombie Nazi kittens or gigantic zombie Nazi fetuses.
As far as we are concerned, South Park the Stick of Truth had only one caveat – it was much too short. And probably one of the reasons why the game became popular so fast is that the last PC game inspired by Stone and Parker’s animation was launched in 1999.
Now, after more than two years of anticipation, Ubisoft announced that the game’s sequel entitled South Park the Fracture but whole would be delayed. When asked about the reason behind their decision, Ubisoft mentioned something about some Nintendo Switch titles in the making.
How do the fans of the series feel about Ubisoft’s statement? Not very good, that’s for sure, taking into account that Parker and Stone said that if Stick of Truth becomes a hit, they will start working on a sequel. Even Ubisoft announced the game on its official blog back in 2015.
So, what should we expect from South Park the Fracture but Whole? According to the company, the game will give the player a choice to become a superhero. As always, you can either join Cartman’s side, named Coon and Friend or join the other faction called Freedom Pals. The Fracture but whole will also feature intense turn-based battles, special class-based abilities, tons of weapons and armors, and, of course, South Park’s notorious sense of humor.
