South Park: The Fractured But Whole release date revealed with new trailer

Posted on May 18, 2017

News has arrived that after many delayspre-order refunds, and some disappointment among fans, South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been given an official release date from Ubisoft in the form of a new trailer.

The game is (finally) releasing on October 17 to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The trailer features a new character, “The Farting Vigilante”, and is filled to the brim with the usual South Park crassness and over-the-top humour we all know and love.

Alongside the trailer and release date comes information on the different editions available for The Factured But Whole, including:

  • Gold (digital): Includes season pass, in-game costumes, and a “bonus perk to get you started”
  • Steelbook Gold (US retail only): Same as the digital Gold, plus a Steelbook case and a set of lithograph prints from South Park Studios
  • Collector’s: All of the above, plus a big box and a six-inch statue of The Coon

Unfortunately, Aussie fans interested in the Steelbook Gold edition may have to look elsewhere as it is slated as a US exclusive at this time.

Ubisoft is also giving away copies of the hit series debut South Park : The Stick of Truth as a pre-order bonus, and an “exclusive in-game assistant”, Towelie: Your Gaming Bud, who is there to help the player and give “hilarious advice” at certain points in the game.
