E3 2015: South Park: The Fractured But Whole announced

Ubisoft kicked off their E3 2015 press conference with a surprise announcement of the follow up to last year’s South Park: The Stick of Truth, titled South Park: Fractured But Whole.

Ditching the LARP-style themes of the 2014 game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole instead dives headlong into a superhero setting as the usual quartet of South Park lads—in addition to you, the New Kid—must prevent the schemes of the villainous Dr. Chaos from coming to fruition.

In leveraging the superhero setting and South Park’s trademark toilet humour, The Fractured But Whole explores the origin story of the New Kid, in addition to, well, their hind quarters. 

Ubisoft San Francisco replaces Obsidian Entertainment who developed last year’s game and while no release date or release platforms were announced for South Park: The Fractured But Whole, a PlayStation 4 release before the end of the year is not out of the question.
