Ubisoft opens with a crap joke.
South Park: The Fractured But Whole debuted at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this afternoon in Los Angeles with a debut trailer, before series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker took to the stage with show host Aisha Tyler. The sequel to 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth spins a more superhero-focused take on the Colorado mountain town, with the player-controlled “New Kid” getting a more in-depth origin story.
“Right at the end of Stick of Truth, we learned how to make video games,” said Parker, describing how the two showrunners are returning to game development despite earlier statements to the contrary.
The Fractured But Whole is in the works at Ubisoft San Francisco, with Parker and Stone retaining their oversight from the previous adventure. No release window was confirmed for the game, but it’s already available for preorder (of course).
