With Ubisoft’s South Park: The Fractured But Whole getting delayed repeatedly, and finally getting a release date for this year, some might be wondering whether it might get delayed again. Well, wonder no more! South Park: The Fractured But Whole has gone gold, which is a manufacturing term when a game is ready to be pressed, duplicated and distributed at retail. In short: it’s on its way to assault consoles, PC and our morality this October 17.

To mark this occasion, Ubisoft has even shot out a South Park: The Fractured But Whole trailer, and as one can expect, it’s rude, crude, and of course, funny.

Those not familiar with this South Park RPG, it’s the sequel to "The Stick of Truth." You can check out the official game synopsis below.

In the quiet mountain town of South Park, darkness has spread across the land. A new power is rising to combat this evil. An entire squad of superheroes will rise, led by a nocturnal scavenger sworn to clean the trash can of South Park society. The kids are playing superheroes, and Cartman is determined to turn Coon and Friends into the biggest superhero franchise of all time. However, the villainous Professor Chaos emerges with an evil plan to eliminate Coon and Friends. The heroes need to work as a team to fight the chaos and terror that that grips the town.

Players will once again assume the role of the New Kid. As the newest member of Coon and Friends, you must create your own superhero, build up your notoriety, and use your superpowers to save South Park. Only then will Coon and Friends take their rightful place as the greatest team of superheroes ever assembled, and get the movie deal they so richly deserve. In a city gripped by chaos, Coon and Friends rise to save the day.
